Situated 47 km North West of Bela-Bela (about two hours away from Johannesburg), the Protea Hotel by Marriott Zebula Lodge is nestled within 1600 hectares of unspoilt bushveld.

The Zebula Golf Estate is a private reserve, which is home to many bird species and small game. The Mabalingwe Game Reserve is in proximity where guests have the opportunity to experience safari drives with a chance of seeing more prominent wildlife species. The golf and wildlife estate offers a variety of accommodation options for guests to choose from including the Bush Lodge, the Waterberg Lodge as well as Eagles Nest.

Here is our video review and commentary on this lodge:


This is a very inexpensive property: the Bush Lodge sells for about $70++ per night, and as a Category 1, you can get this room from 5,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. Both prices are more than right, the accommodations may not be top luxury but this lodge is nice and spacious and the surroundings are stunning.
