Sudwala Lodge

Your Sudwala Adventure

A Stay at Sudwala Lodge is all about the sound of the Houtbosloop River as it flows past the Resort; it’s about waking up to the magnificent sight of the Mankelekele Mountain, hearing the laughter of your family and the feeling of the African sun on your skin at dusk, or while watching the mist spread over the mountain at dawn. It’s about basking in nature – celebrating it in all its glory and making memories with loved ones to cherish for a lifetime. It’s about the feeling you get when you place your hand in a loved ones, as you explore the Resorts Surrounds. It’s about appreciating all the things that really matter in life.
