Situated in the Waterberg, 280kms north of Johannesburg, Lindani is a private 3800ha game farm committed to responsible tourism. Set in stunning scenery with river frontage on the Melk and Palala Rivers, it is ideal for walking and hiking, cycling and mountain biking, game viewing and birding, family and friendship group get togethers and special occasions.

Lindani has eight isolated and totally private cottages, houses and lodges, each with its own pool, available for ‘rent’ for a weekend, a few days, a week or longer. Each unit is tastefully furnished for comfort and fully equipped for home-style self-catering. Supported self-catering is available. Children are welcome.

Our goal is to achieve a sustainable eco-tourism development in which

the land is able to recover from human and cattle damage

staff are empowered to create decent secure jobs in a rural environment

the non-wealthy can have access to a quality bush experience at an affordable price

the local community benefits from the economic activity taking place within the development


We are committed to self catering in order to keep prices down for our guests. It is however possible to order prepared meals or a full catering service in the event of a special occasion from a professional caterer in Vaalwater.


We have an arrangement with an excellent professional caterer ( Bush Stop Café ) in Vaalwater to provide two different services, namely

  • the provision of prepared casseroles and desserts for guests on normal visits
  • the supply of a full catering service for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries etc.


Normal check in time is 2.00pm. Check out time Monday to Saturday is 9.30am and on Sundays and Public Holidays 6.00 pm. These times can be adjusted where there is no booking immediately before or after your stay.
