Tanamera is a small lodge consisting of just 7 chalets, each chalet sleeps 2 people, making a total of 14 pax maximum. We operate with a Child policy of aged 16+ and our guests are mostly honeymooners, couples and small groups seeking a personalised luxury lodge experience. We offer dinner, bed and breakfast only. Guests dine together in the lodge or alfresco at private tables. We also offer guests private dining in their chalets or on their own deck if the weather permits.
Chalets are each equipped with a twin or king-sized bed, 4-poster effect mosquito net draping the bed, fireplaces, room safes, overhead fans, Tea and Coffee facilities, huge bath tubs for two, walk in waterfall shower and private decks overlooking the Sabie River Valley – except for our Forest View chalet which looks over the forest not the river itself. All chalets have a private plunge pool and the Honeymoon Chalets have larger decks with the addition of outdoor showers.
LUXURY RIVERVIEW CHALET
The 4 beautiful River View Luxury Chalets boast a king-size bed draped with a mosquito net and has a large stone bath, waterfall shower and fireplace. The sliding screen and glass doors lead onto a private wooden stilted deck with a plunge pool, from which you can take in the awe-inspiring view. Each chalet is private and surrounded by unspoilt indigenous bush and is perfectly situated for a romantic, relaxing & memorable stay. Indulge in the huge stone baths & waterfall showers, tucked behind a wall and hinged reed half-doors.

DINING AND MEALS

The menu changes daily and we can cater for halal and vegetarian dining as well as other dietary requirements such as gluten-free, diabetic, celeriac etc.
Guests have the option of having dinner and breakfast in the main lodge or in their chalets, should they wish to be more private. During summer, both dinner and breakfast are served on the viewing decks, weather permitting.
