Kingfisher Creek Lodge

Superb location close to the ‘Orpen Gate’ of the Kruger National Park, the Panorama Route which encompasses the Blyde River Canyon, and the bustling tourist town of Hoedspruit.

Nestled inside the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve, Kingfisher Creek offers comfortable accommodation for the traveller who is looking to escape the stresses of busy city life. Abundant birdlife in the mature garden, together with the gentle sound of the water fountain flowing this is escapism at its best.

Sit in your private boma which overlooks the animals casually making their way to the water trough for an afternoon drink and as the sun sets over the reserve, have a gin & tonic and listen to the sounds of the bush. On occasion, the lions on the neighbouring Thornybush can be heard calling .

The cottage consists of two bedrooms both with private bathrooms. The master bedroom has a king sleigh bed. The bathroom has a bath and a shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a single bed and the bathroom has a shower.

The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering. The kitchen is open-plan to the lounge area. A thatched roof provides shade from the heat and ensures outdoor dining is available throughout the year.

The private boma comes complete with a picnic bench, built-in braai, a firepit and built-in seating. The braai area looks out onto the bush where giraffe, zebra, antelope and the occasional buffalo can be seen grazing.

Safari: Our cottage is ideally placed to see a wide varity of animals . This an authentic bush experience. Plains game means you can go on guided walks/cycle on the reserve, yet still hear some of the big 5 animals that surround Guernsey Nature Reserve


Nestled inside the Guernsey Private Nature Reserve, Kingfisher Creek Lodge feels like a million miles away when in fact it is located a mere 15 km from the main Orpen road that leads to the Kruger National Park.
