Put Your Feet Up at Mogalakwena River Lodge in Alldays

Send to Kindle

If you’re looking for something a little different why not book yourself a few nights at the Mogalakwena River Lodge in Alldays, Limpopo. Mogalagkwena meaning ‘fierce crocodile’ is made up of the River Lodge, a craft art village, Artist’s Retreat and a research centre.

The Artist’s Retreat offers four two-bedroom self catering in Alldays as well as a writer’s cottage which gives you the perfect opportunity to relax and restore and perhaps work on that novel you’ve been planning to start for ages.

Spend some time at the craft art village which was established in 1994 by Dr Elbe Coetsee and is a wonderful space for developing traditional skills, preserving indigenous culture, employment creation and more. Come and see the training that takes place in weaving, pottery and more.


The magnificent Mogalakwena River Lodge


Review by: Michael + Andrea, Maine, Germany
An amazing place to relax, to calm down and to feel free!


The Accommodation:

The River Lodge is positioned on the banks of the Mogalakwena River and blends harmoniously into the African bush. The main lodge consists of four rooms, two twin and two double rooms built around the open boma and dining area and four private chalets. Each main lodge room has an en-suite bathroom with shower only, ceiling fans and wall heaters.

Tania loves to cook and create magic in the kitchen for family and friends (or even just herself). Be it finding a new recipe or making a tried and tested dish from her recipe folder - the kitchen is her sanctuary. Find her hanging out with friends round the braai or curled up on the couch reading the latest crime drama. With a spring in her step and a song in her heart you’ll find her supporting local artists in theatre, music and dance – from a hip hop competition or the latest musical on stage at Artscape in Cape Town. Enjoying all things culture she likes to share her experiences and delights with those around her.
