Rock Pool

Relax beside the beautiful rock pool and enjoy the subtropical climate of Hazyview.

Lush Gardens

Unwind in the lush gardens, sit on a bench and read a book or take a stroll and admire all the beautiful flowers, plants and trees. Many of them are indigenous to the area.

Outdoors, the Gecko Way

It is not often that you go and sit down at a place and know, that this place could be special with a little bit of effort. The problem, what effort was required?

Summer evenings in Hazyview are the best. You just need to sit outside and enjoy the coolness of the bush creeping up to you, the last bird call before bed, and the evening sounds of insects and night animals around you.

The Boma, also known as a kraal, has a long history dating back to the pre-colonial Africa when the native groups such as the isiZulu and isiXhosa used wooden fences to enclose livestock and to fortify family homesteads, thus protecting them from wild animals.

Now we too have created this traditional feeling within our Lodge to continue to carry out the traditions of our African people.

The candle lit Boma, night stars and centred fire burning creates an atmosphere of cosy, intermate dining experience whilst enjoying our 3 course meal offered and sipping on local wines and beers. End off the evening by sipping on the famous Amarula Liquor as a night cap.

Feel at home in our small lounge & library near the reception area. A wonderful place to take time out, read a book and relax.

Enjoy a sundowner at the bar or have a glass of world famous South African wine while sitting next to the soothing water features.

Macadamia Plantation and River walk

While staying with us at Gecko Lodge, why not start you day off with a brisk early morning walk or a late afternoon stroll through the macadamia orchards down to the Sabie River. You may even be lucky enough to see one of the hippo's that live in the river.
