About Kuungana Bush Lodge

Plot 211, Plataan Road
Donkerhoek, Pretoria
Pretoria, 0002

Kuungana is a Swahili word meaning, connect.  At Kuungana Bush Lodge, our mission is to CONNECT all your dreams, in the only way we know, and that is through good service, delicious food and by creating memories.

Kuungana Bush Lodge is situated in beautiful bushveld, a mere 15 minutes from Pretoria. It provides rustic “chique” in a relaxed bushveld environment. We offer various venues, including a main hall that can seat up 250 banquet guests with a private lounge and kiddies room, our beautiful gothic chapel, a large Boma with its own bar overlooking bushveld, as well as a private dining wine room offering boutique wines. 

For those looking for a quick bite to eat or some excellent craft beer and coffee there is Sweet Torque Café where we combine our passion for everything automotive with our love for great food, craft beer, coffee, sweet treats and craft work. And after a long day why not settle down in one of our 12 beautiful cottages nestled into the surrounding bush veld.

Managed by Michelle & Hendrich Janse van Rensburg, Kuungana Bush Lodge, has been operating for more than 20 years (previously known as Owls Nest). Michelle has extensive experience in the hospitality industry having worked in various management rolls in lodges across South Africa, including the Kruger National Park. In 2012 Hendrich & Michelle started a fresh meal delivery service that they build up to a very successful and well-known business in Pretoria & Centurion. With more than 30 years combined experience in the culinary & hospitality industry we look forward to working with you to create a once in a lifetime experience.

Beset with picturesque gardens, light and open functions spaces, and a rustic ambiance throughout, it would make for an unforgettable wedding venue.

Daar is nie eintlik woorde om te beskryf hoe special ons troudag gister was nie! Als was perfek! Net soos wat mens daarvan gedroom het toe jy n klein dogtertjie was en dan word dit dekades later bewaarheid! Voorwaar die mooiste dag in ons 2 se lewe!

True Hosts of an amazing venue.

We recently had our wedding at Kuungana Bush Lodge. from day one Michelle and her husband were so accommodating, waiting for us to come view late in the afternoon, allowing us to come view each time i requested. They are patient and so friendly. True Hosts of an amazing venue. They went out of their way to make sure everything ran perfectly on the day. The food was out of this world delicious and everyone couldn't stop speaking about it. Michelle i just want to say a VERY BIG thank you for everything you guys did for us!!! it was amazing!!!!
