Iketla Lodge is a small and intimate 4 star country lodge, set in a 540 ha private nature reserve near the Blyde River Canyon. Unspoilt nature, fascinating walking trails, abundant birdlife, occasional wildlife and a peaceful environment all contribute to a memorable stay.
Iketla Lodge is ideally located to explore the stunning Panorama Route including stops at Pilgrim’s Rest, Graskop, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Blyde River Canyon.
Accommodation at Iketla Lodge
Using natural materials where possible, the accommodation units were designed and built to ensure maximum comfort, luxury, space and privacy. The private patios provide magnificent views of the valley below, mountains, cliffs and indigenous forests.
Five of our eight chalets at Iketla Lodge were built on the edge of a small rise and each offers a secluded look-out point into the valley – the ideal place to spend a romantic hour or two.
Activities at Iketla Lodge
Whether lounging by the pool, enjoying the view from your patio or sitting quietly on a rock looking into the valley, Iketla is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. You are welcome to explore the bush on your own. We offer 5 hiking trails that are well marked, safe and vary in difficulty and distance. Routes are colour coded so that you easily decide on the distance, time and relative difficulty.
