Malachite Lodge is a private ten-bedded luxury safari lodge nestling under the Drakensberg Escarpment at the Lissataba Reserve in the vicinity of the world-renowned Kruger National Park in the Limpopo Province of South Africa. We are approaching 20km on the road from the gate on sandy game roads, so please allow at least 40 minutes for your transfer and observe the 30 km/h speed limit. An air transfer will require a 30 minute drive.



 This website aims to give visitors some background information and an idea of what to expect during their stay, and suggestions on how to use the place safely. The reserve is a founding member of the Blyde-Olifants Conservancy.

You may also wish to explore a more comprehensive guide to the region, which we thoroughly recommend: Kruger2Canyons.com.

There is information on local attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, Magoebaskloof, and towns such as Phalaborwa, Hoedspruit and Tzaneen amongst others as well as contact numbers for local amenities and services.
