Illovo Africa Lodge is situated at the mouth of the Illovo River so each of the log cabins has a magnificent sea and river view and, for the early birds, stunning sunrises. All this can be appreciated from the undercover deck on the cabins.
Apart from the views you can sit and relax, watch and listen to the bird life (fish eagles nest along the banks of the river) and, if you are lucky, watch the dolphins and whales. July is the time for the sardine run when you can watch it all happening from the deck with the gulls diving into the shoals. Each cabin consists of 2 bedrooms both with full en suite bathrooms, a lounge and fitted kitchen fully-equipped for self catering with a stove and oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery.
The bedrooms and lounge all have ceiling fans. These cabins accommodate 4 people,and we can put an extra bed in the lounge to accommodate 5 quite comfortably or 2 beds for 6 but we find this very squashed. A Honeymoon suite is also available. We have 2 braai areas, one under a shady old mahogany tree and the other at the pool area. The property has remote controlled security gates as well as being lit up at night to give you peace of mind.
