This 9,5 ha of lush bushveld forest is home to a vast variety of bird species, an ideal place for bird watchers to enjoy bird viewing, along with the troops of local vervet monkeys playing in the treetops above, and the quick visits from the elusive duikers roaming the bushveld around the lodge.

Our Happy Guests
Chestnut is one of our favorite lodges, whenever we travel to Kruger or need to exhale from our busy lives, this is our go to place. We have so many warm and beautiful memories from out time there. The rooms are comfortable, the environment stunning and the staff are what really make it one of the best experiences. Warm and engaging. Once again we felt special and embraced at this beautiful lodge.
Beautiful Lodge, very peaceful and wonderful view if you enjoy scenery. The rooms are spacious and private as well. The breakfast is wonderful and staff are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely book at Chestnut again as the experience was good.
I have been staying at Chestnut Country Lodge every time I visit Hazyview, which is about 15 years. I highly recommend Chestnut, it is a beautiful location, excellently run and always am sorry to leave. Their food is excellent . I usually go into Kruger for the day and if I go early they give an excellent packed breakfast. On other days if you want to just laze at the Lodge, it is very restful and has a beautiful swimming pool around which you can relax. Highly recommended.
