Squirrel’s Nest

About us

Situated on the R101 just outside the beautiful town of Mokopane.  The name is derived from the many squirrels that frequently run around in the gardens.  For a relaxing stay in bushveld surroundings with squirrels and bird life, Squirrels Nest Lodge is the place to stay.

Squirrel’s Nest Lodge offers overnight accommodation for the weary traveller.  A fully licensed restaurant offers nourishment and refreshments.  There is ample secure parking for the guests.  Tourists en-route to Kruger National Park, Botswana and Zimbabwe are welcome to bring along their caravan, boat or trailer.

The town of Mokopane is a mere 2km away from the lodge.  Tourists can visit the caves at Makapansgat Valley, San rock art, the Game Breeding Centre on the outskirts of Mokopane and the biggest citrus farm near Zebediela.   The capital of Limpopo, Polokwane, is situated 40 mins away

Squirrel’s Nest Restaurant and Farmyard is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Relax in the bar before sitting down for your meal or wander outside to view the farmyard which boasts geese, exotic ducks, chickens and rabbits. Feed the Goats or Piglets.   Be on the lookout for the squirrel’s running around in the trees.

All kids are welcome to enjoy the Jungle Gym or play games in the playroom.  Bring your children and leave to run around or ride the Push Bikes, while relaxing in the restaurant.  There is ample space to play and run around.
