Kwena Lodge
Thwane Safaris SA

This 10 000 acres of true African wildlife paradise, is home to the Barnard family and situated in the heart of the Limpopo Province (malaria free) at the end of the Waterberg mountain range, a mere 4 hour drive from the OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg. Marius has personalized his very upmarket Kwena Lodge with more than 40 trophies hunted by himself that includes Buffalo, Lion, Elephant, Hippo, Nile Crocodile and various plains game to smaller antelope like the very rear Black Leechwe, Blue Duiker and Sharpe’s Grysbok.

Kwena is the native Tswana word for crocodile. Upmarket accommodation at Kwena is ideally positioned to offer our clients a taste of Africa at its best with an existing view over the crocodile waterhole. The very luxurious rooms invite guests to abandon themselves to total relaxation, all rooms are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms and DSTV. Beyond the pool, stretching out toward the crocodile waterhole, waterbuck, impala and many other species can be seen. 

Our traditional home-style cooked meals served in the spacious dining area are always one of our clients favourites as we go the extra mile after a successful day. The outdoor rustic Boma is designed for social gatherings around the fire, contributing to various discussions, experiences and happenings of the day, words fail to capture the atmosphere around the cracking fire and night sounds of the bush.
