Welcome to a safari lodge with attitude! Forget jodhpurs, pith helmets or stiff upper lips – Ecca Lodge is youthful, relaxed, modern and trendy. Emblazoned with giant Warhol-like prints, retro light fittings and shades of olive, rust and burnt orange, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a funky cosmopolitan penthouse, until you step outside that is...
Blessed with breathtaking views over an Acacia, Aloe and Spekboom-studded valley, this funky lodge with a laid-back vibe offers the perfect wildlife experience for the young at heart.
Set in thick vegetation overlooking a dense valley, Ecca Lodge offers breathtaking views onto an escarpment of steep shale cliffs. Expansive wooden viewing decks provide the ideal setting to soak up the bushveld atmosphere with a leisurely lunch or a sundowner drink. Rooms are airy and open, with barely a barrier between the indoors and the African bush. Highlights of the guest areas include the open interactive kitchen, a gorgeous rim-flow lap pool and the nearby interpretive library.
Minimalist chic is the order of the day at Ecca. Modern, spacious bedrooms share wraparound wooden decks with the suite’s private sitting rooms. Retro light fittings and polished concrete floors combine with shades of olive and burnt orange for a warm yet contemporary look. The ultra-modern bathrooms, with their mosaic mirrors and glassed showers, refresh and delight. Outdoor showers tip a broad wink at safari tradition.
Quirky touches in décor and fittings surprise and delight guests at every turn. Life-sized animal photographs re-tinted in psychedelic colours add a touch of fun and fantasy. Private plunge pools with solar heating provide relief from the heat of the day and are warm enough for an evening dip. A play centre for kids keeps little hands busy for hours and a shared lodge pool provides the perfect place for a communal splash. An interactive kitchen tempts and tantalises with colours and aromas, while our friendly and attentive staff make your every wish a reality.
