Finfoot Lake Reserve is the perfect safari break near Johannesburg for those wanting to see South Africa’s wildlife. You won’t come across most of the larger prowling predators that you would in the Kruger, but there are a number of happy herbivores and fascinating creatures scattered throughout the reserve that are still unique and just as fascinating to see out in the bush.

Bush Walks

Experience the delight of a guided nature walk after breakfast, which offers an up-close perspective of the surrounding landscape. This is an easy way to stretch your legs while staying at Finfoot Lake Reserve. You’ll definitely learn a thing or too as our qualified walking guides teach you about the smaller creatures of the reserve as well as the medicinal uses of significant plants, herbs and trees.


The dam is well known for it's fly and bait angling. It offers diverse species: Carp; Yellow; Kurper; Barbel. Guests can rent equipment from the lodge.

Barge Cruises

All aboard for our unforgettable sunset barge cruise. Bring your sundowner drink of choice as we cruise out over the water just before heading up to the restaurant for dinner. The scenery illuminated by the last light of the day makes for excellent photography.

Additional Activities on Offer:

  • Bring your bike
  • Go for a paddle on the lake
  • how about taking on the Segway safari if you’re up for a bit of fun

Finfoot Lake Reserve is well-equipped with facilities that will complete your stay and make you feel right at home while you soak up the scenery.

Swimming Pool

The best feature about our outdoor pool area is that it is close enough to the bar. While our bartenders mix up your cocktail of choice, head out to find your new favourite spot on one of our sun loungers while you enjoy the surrounding views of the South African bush. Our private self-catering villas also boast their own medium-sized outdoor pools.

Outdoor Boma

The fire pit in our outdoor boma is the ideal spot for pre-dinner drinks or afternoon teas. If you are visiting us during the colder months, nothing beats sitting near the blazing fire to warm up. It’s a great spot for a round of socialising, as you share your favourite memories of your day with the other guests.
