The Boma


Bomameaning “Kraal” in Swahili – is an enclosure made from latte sticks. Breathing flames, it reflects memories of the ancient world of Africa.

For centuries people would naturally gather around a fire. The Boma is the perfect place to relax and share the day’s events with family and friends. Light the fire for a braai or a potjie, a South African tradition. Slow cooked on the open coals, a potjie provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the African Night Sky.

The Tortoise Goes to a Feast in the Sky (African Folktale)

There was a famine in the animal kingdom and Ijapa, the tortoise, was finding that food was hard to come by. However, he found out that all the birds in the forest were preparing for the great annual bird feast in the sky and those who had been lucky enough to attend this annual event could testify to the abundance of food at the feast. Since the feast took place in the sky, only the birds could attend. But Ijapa the tortoise was not one to give up so easily. He went to every bird and borrowed a feather making up one excuse or the other. He glued all these feathers to his back and all over his body and soon, he was the most colorful bird you had ever seen.   Read more

It's an awesome lodge to have a weekend away with your friends and family. Lea is a great host and very communicable and willing to help you. The game vehicle rental was a great option to have too. We saw rhinos and buffalos as well as other animals. We had a great time at the Idwala View! Thanks!

Idwala View completely exceeded all our expectations. Lea was an amazing host from the small touches of welcoming us to being available anytime we had a question to just having an extremely beautifully kept home. Will definitely return and would absolutely recommend this as a perfect vacation spot to anyone including families with children.

Kim – May 2017Gorgeous House
This place was amazing, the pictures don't do it justice. It's nicely spaced out. We went away for a family 70th and we had all the kids from 2 – 10 with us. They had so much fun swimming and going on game drives. The deck is so big they can play and the side chairs that swing where a big hit. The 2 tables that are there can make a nice long table to accommodate big families. You are away from everyone so it really does feel like a bit of heaven. Thank You Lea.
Ashleigh – February 2017A Bit of Heaven
