Recharge…rejuvenate…revive…restore…at our Ingulule Spa retreat

Named after the Zulu word for “cheetah”, our on-site Ingulule Spa allows guests to retreat and pamper themselves in an intimate setting with a variety of indulgent spa treatments.

Providing the ultimate relaxation while on safari, our spa offers personal attention from our two qualified therapists, using safe, natural, and environmentally-friendly products from Esse, a Proudly South African skincare collection, to rejuvenate and invigorate the senses.
