Idube Game Lodge is situated in an indigenous garden of cool, green lawns and tall trees, maintained only with recycled water. The lodge is designed to blend into the bush with rough, natural coloured bricks, while tiled roofs create a cool interior. Guests love to gather in the thatched bar and entertainment areas while the open lounge is a splendid place to relax and wait for animals to come grazing in front of the lodge. Guests can watch game from a number of viewing platforms around the camp and from a sunken hide at a dam directly opposite the lodge. Idube is also home to families of nyala and warthogs, seen almost daily around the lodge area.
