“Tshipise” means “something warm”, and the famous Tshipise koppie towers protectively over the Resort.  Giant baobabs dot the landscape and the Resort’s self-catering rondavels and comfortable caravan park are barely visible among the Mopani, red bushwillow and jakkalsbessie trees.
Blessed with a year-round sunny climate and hot mineral springs, with Beit Bridge – for travelers en route to and from Zimbabwe – and the Kruger National Park a stone’s throw away, this lush Bushveld retreat enchants jaded city dwellers. Lose yourself in the great outdoors with game viewing on horse-back, bush drives or nature trails, witness ancient rock formations, soak your cares away in the healing waters or catch the big ones at the nearby Njelele Dam.
The Resort offers a six-sleeper guest house, 95 air-conditioned thatched rondavels, and a shady 370 caravan and camping park, all equipped with power points, serviced by seven ablution facilities.

AM Lodge is a Lilizela Tourism award-winning five-star lodge unlike any other in the Klaserie region. This exquisitely crafted architectural masterpiece was established in the heart of the African Bush. Set apart from the main lodge to ensure privacy and tranquillity, is the award-winning AM Spa – voted the Global Winner for Safari Spa at the World Luxury Spa Awards which took place in Switzerland earlier this year – set in a serene haven where you indulge in the soothing treatments on offer, unwind in the Jacuzzi, work up a sweat in the fitness centre and cool down in the outdoor swimming pool before settling down on one of the sun loungers. Water features throughout the public areas of the main lodge serve as a reminder of its proximity to the Klaserie River, a lifeblood for the fauna and flora of the greater Kruger National Park. AM Lodge is located on a private reserve in the Klaserie region at the border of the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces, approximately 5,5 hour’s drive from Johannesburg, or 15 minutes from Eastgate airport at Hoedspruit with direct flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town.
