Thoughtfully designed to incorporate modern luxury into the exquisite natural surroundings, Ximuwu is a place to soak in the tranquillity of the bushveld, re-engage your senses, and relax. Enjoy spectacular, uninterrupted views of the African landscape from the comfort of your suite, relax poolside, or enjoy a drink with family and friends by our firepit.
Seclusion & Serenity
Our central lodge comprises an indoor and outdoor dining area, breakfast room, fully stocked bar, lounge, and covered patio. Our sun deck and firepit area overlook our 16m swimming pool and are the perfect place to relax and breathe in the landscape. With no other guests competing for space, the peace and serenity are all yours.
Light & Spacious
Designed to accommodate a maximum of eight guests across our four spacious and comfortable suites, Ximuwu offers an untold level of comfort. Our suites all surround the main lodge within close proximity of each other, yet still maintain a level of seclusion so you can be assured of privacy.
Our suites are north-facing with floor-to-ceiling windows, guaranteeing maximum natural light and a spectacular view. Each of our suites overlooks one of the reserve’s water holes and boasts magnificent views of the passing parade of wildlife that come to drink their fill.
