The lodge is situated at the foot of Mahaqwa mountain in Bulwer, Kwazulu-Natal. The main landing field is a few hundred meters away and with a bit of experience you can also land on the lawn right on the front lawn.
The warm atmosphere at Wild Sky lodge is well known with the hand built log cabins giving it a really welcome feeling. The lodge has a communal kitchen that is fully equipped with a comfortable fireplace lounge and dining area. There is also a braai place outside.
The views from the lodge are fantastic, with the mountain on one side and the valley on the other. The accommodation we offer is rustic, but comfortable, and suitable for anyone from campers to families.
The area offers a vast choice of activities for family members and non-pilots. From paragliding, horse riding, river rafting, hiking & bird watching, mountain biking, fly fishing and much more.
Have a sundowner on the deck as you watch the last soaring of the day or go for a walk in the beautiful Marutswa forest. Make use of the excellent bird guide, Simphiwe Damakude, as he will point out all the special birds and plants an untrained eye might miss.
