Amadwala Lodge

Amadwala means “Place of the Rock” and this Johannesburg lodge is immersed in its 5.5 hectare bush environment. Within close proximity to Lanseria International Airport (30 minute drive) and an easy drive from O.R Tambo International Airport (45 minute drive), Amadwala is a fitting choice for travellers as a base to explore Johannesburg and its surrounding attractions, or to simply unwind. It is also an idyllic and fuss-free getaway destination for local South Africans.

About Amadwala Lodge

Amadwala Lodge is set amidst natural rocky outcrops and giant indigenous trees, with an abundance of bird life.

The many offerings open to our guests include comfortable accommodation, a decadent African-fusion style restaurant, a welcoming bush bar and private boma venue ideal for wedding parties and private celebrations. A fully equipped conference section is also conveniently available.

Guests instantly relax and become one with the tranquil, bush lodge setting.

A stroll through the grounds leads visitors over wooden bridges guarding ponds, beside rocky water features and to an inviting swimming pool which set the quiet, bushveld scene. Staggering views are the reward from the viewing deck on the rocks while at night lanterns light the way and an outdoor bonfire under African stars beckons. The captivating characteristics complement the lodge’s African heart.

Three unique accommodation types are available to guests. Choose between seven African-chic style log chalets complemented by bush lodge touches, or seven authentically African, permanent safari tents, for the more laid back traveller looking for that safari accommodation experience.


These are handsomely furnished with wooden character and flair. Each chalet sleeps two guests and boasts its own private veranda deck, an indulgent jacuzzi bath and fireplace.

Absolute comfort comes standard with a stay in an Amadwala lodge chalet, with crisp sheets and inviting bedding luring guests in. The setting, cosiness and hint of African decadence makes visitors want to stay forever.


Chalet number 7 is particularly dreamy. It has all the allure of the standard chalets with added charm. It oozes romance in its completely private setting. Its own private splash pool and secluded gardens with waterfall features falling into a pond are its shining features.

This chalet is the perfect choice for couples seeking a serene getaway together to celebrate a special occasion or to just unwind together in tranquility.


An authentically African safari accommodation type, these raised canvas tents each sleep two guests in comfort. Each tent flaunts a private, en-suite bathroom, complete with a roomy shower as a favourite feature. The wooden decks enjoy views over the marshland, twittering with birdlife.
