Activities At Tshikwalo Game Lodge and Dinokeng Game Reserve

Dinokeng Game Reserve near Pretoria is the ultimate ‘safari getaway’ in Gauteng

Dinokeng Game Drives

Tshikwalo Game Lodge offers guided game drives on an open safari vehicle with a qualified guide with sightings of the Big-5. The game drive normally takes 2.5-3 hours to complete and during the drive a scenic spot is usually sought out to stop and enjoy your drink and snack while you view the sunset over the African bush.

Experience it

Dinokeng Self-Drive Game Drives

On 16 December 2014, Dinokeng introduced the DGR ‘Wilderness Way’ self-drive route, with more planned for the near future. This is proving to be a very popular game viewing experience for visitors to Dinokeng.

Romantic Bush Dinner

Our romantic bush dinner is set in a secluded spot in our private boma. You will be amazed to be completely alone in the bush only accompanied by a small fire and candlelight. Your food and drinks will be served to you by an attending waiter while you listen to the nocturnal sounds of Africa.


Food and Wine Pairings

Our restaurant hosts an array of food and wine pairings. 

Enjoy some of our chef’s most beautiful creations, a series of dishes prepared and paired with a specific cultivate of wine. Each wine combined with a carefully selected dish to not only compliment the cultures of the wine but also the flavours and pallet of each dish.

Bush Picnic

Why not treat yourself to a romantic bush picnic during your stay? You will be taken with our game viewer to a secluded spot overlooking the dam where your picnic will await you. Chilled drinks and platters with mouthwatering food will complement this outing.
