Kwalata Game Lodge, your ultimate Function Venue

Kwalata Game Lodge’s is built amongst a Tamboti tree forest with natural stone and thatch and has a true South African Wildlife Ambiance. Lovely gardens around the church are ideal to meet and have private family time. The unique stone and thatch roof church provides a special place for the funeral or memorial ceremony of a beloved one.
