COMMON ROOM

The beating heart of any great Lodge.

Our cozy common room area provides a laid-back environment in which to connect with fellow adventurers. It has been the starting point of many a great story, berg exploration and friendship. For your convenience and in the interest of being sociable, the communal kitchen adjoins this common room area. With stunning views, a wood burning fireplace and floor to ceiling information on the surrounding area, our common room is the heart of Sani Lodge. Whether you'd rather catch a tan next to the pool, kick back with a something interesting from our book exchange, or simply sip a cold beer by the braai whilst the sun sets on another stunning African day, we are the perfect setting. For those seeking a bit more, we have lovely self-catering cottages which are perfect for a family getaway or group of friends.

"An amazing place, staff are great, helpful and kind. Rooms are clean and nice. World-class trails. Cafe is great".
