Welcome to Didimala Game Lodge
Didimala Game Lodge was designed around the executive, providing luxury, comfort and sophisticated conference equipment in a Bushveld setting.

If your requirements are exclusive get-togethers, where organic architecture is seamlessly integrated with innovative conferencing & multimedia technology and broad band WI-FI connectivity everywhere, you will not be disappointed. "Didimala” means 'keep the secret', and we have by design, adopted an unassuming pretense where we quietly make every effort, every day, in providing service excellence to our valued clients.

Situated a little more than an hours drive North from the Sandton CBD, we are perfectly located, and focus on providing our corporate guests with an exceptionally natural and organic venue for large gala functions or intimate board room and conferencing meeting facilities.
Unrivaled and Unique
Didimala was created from 10,000 wheat straw bales and is probably the largest structure of its kind ever embarked on. The use of modern, contemporary décor & furniture throughout the Lodge set against a backdrop of these rugged buttresses create unique contrasts. It certainly delivers the required atmosphere - a sumptuous venue with a distinctive difference.

The exclusivity of Didimala was recognized a mere 10 months after operations started when it was selected by the Office of the State President to host the World Summit on Progressive Governance 2006.
Several heads-of-state attended the conference, including President Thabo Mbeki, Prime Minister Tony Blair and our very own Mr. Nelson Mandela. Didimala continues to stand out and be recognized nationally and internationally as a venue.

Several acclaims attest to this including recognition as one of five international finalists in the Lodge Category of the prestigious World Luxury Hotel Awards 2008 which are accepted as the pinnacle of achievement for Luxury Hotels worldwide and established as a celebration of ultimate achievement in hoteliering.

Didimala was also selected as one of three national finalists in the inaugural Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) Tourism Investment Awards in the Category Project of Excellence and Innovation 2007, attaining acknowledgment on a national level for our innovative and value adding advancement in terms of the manner in which our service is provided.

Most recently in January 2010 Didimala was selected to host the South African final leg of the 2010 World Miss University Beauty Contest.

Our commitment to service excellence and our achieved “look and feel” accomplished with the substantial and unyielding straw bale walls makes for charming conversation, instantly revealing its silent appeal to visitors not to “keep the secret” after they depart from Didimala.
