South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Accommodation – Lodge
Category: Service Excellence

Motivation for award: We were pleased that the establishment was nominated, we ticked the box for service excellence, because this establishment is run by a team, not by a manager, each of the members is so hardworking, so dedicated, so passionate, full of energy and service driven, they strive to be the best everyday, they grow with the company, they smile to all our guests, not just a smile on a face, but a smile that can be seen in everything they do. They make us proud beyond words, because they get it, they get why we do what we do every day and that is to co-create memorable travel experiences which connect people for a brighter future.

Region: North West / Bojanala

Finfoot Lake Reserve

Accommodation, Lodge

Finfoot Lake Reserve is everything you could want in a weekend break or week-long holiday. Located near Johannesburg (only 90 minutes’ drive), that much-needed slice of peace and quiet is within easy reach for travellers seeking to escape the urban jungle.

This lodge near Johannesburg is naturally crafted from wood and thatch, perfectly complimenting the surrounding woodlands and foliage. Finfoot Lake Reserve offers two accommodation options: comfortable chalets or a stylish self-catering villa located close to the Vaalkop Dam, which is ideal for families and groups of friends celebrating a special occasion.

The large thatched lapa serves as the main hub at Finfoot Lake Reserve. This open-sided, breezy building is home to the camp’s bar and cosy lounge areas where most meals are served. Descend a few steps out onto the sun deck, where there’s plenty of seating to sit back and soak up the view. The swimming pool is a popular spot for those looking to put their feet up with a cocktail or two.

Finfoot Lake Reserve is true South African hospitality at its best. The conference centre caters for up to 60 delegates if you are looking for a venue to host your next event. We can arrange a number of interactive team building activities too.

Set within the tranquil Greater Pilanesberg area and a short drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, you will still find yourself in the heart of the action as this is a place of plenty when it comes to activities. Bring your bike, go for a paddle on the lake. Try a bush walk or game drive, delight in a sunset barge cruise, or how about taking on the Segway safari if you’re up for a bit of fun?

This must be one of the best lodges we had the previlidge to stay at. The manager and staff was wonderfull and so helpful and the food great. Sarel, Melanie and there team goes beyond and above to make people feel special and spoiled us dearly. It’s so nice to have a lodge to go too, to just relax, eat, swim and they take care of you.
