It was a beautiful warm and clear spring day when a group of us drove out to iNsingizi Game Lodge & Spa. The views of the countryside in the Natal midlands were spectacular.
As we neared our destination, we felt that unmistakeable peace and stillness that only comes from being in the bushveld. So, we were already relaxed and looking forward to a morning of pampering.
On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Jenna with a glass of Champagne and then were led off to change into gowns and slippers, in one of the chalets.
These lovely private en-suite rooms with their own decks are set amongst the bush.
iNsingizi Game Lodge offers wonderful spa treatments
First was the foot massage in an open thatched area with a peaceful view of the bush before us and another glass of Champagne in our hands. The massage lasted 45 minutes and as we sat in comfortable loungers, some of us even dozed off.
Next, we were led to another thatched area tucked away in thick bush and open at the sides. This was for a full body massage with only the sounds of the birds for company.
By this time, we were so relaxed and we glided to the pool area where we were served a delicious lunch of chicken pie with phyllo pastry, a vegetable quiche and lovely fresh salads, followed by iNsingizi’s famous brownies and cream.
iNsingizi Game Lodge has so much to offer
Unfortunately, then it was time to make our way home and as we returned to the reception area we were offered a glass of Amarula and a square of fudge. Our only regret was that due to commitments at home, we couldn’t spend the night.
While any trip to a spa is a wonderful experience, this was doubly so being in the bush with the smells and sounds that only the bush can offer.
iNsingizi is also a conference and wedding venue with a chapel overlooking a dam, and various reception rooms available for different numbers of guests. There are nine beautifully-appointed en-suite chalets as well as a self-catering guesthouse, which can sleep up to 20 guests.
Jenna and Nadia are so welcoming, accommodating and professional – an absolute pleasure to deal with as are the ladies in the spa. We had a truly memorable experience. Thank you so much iNsingizi!
