The name Roodewal is taken from the scenically beautiful long dolerite dyke found in this area of the Kruger National Park, the ridge of which at times suggests a great wall built of massive stone blocks and overgrown with aloes, seringas and euphorias.
Roodewal Bush Lodge is situated close to one of the most beautiful seasonal rivers in the park, the Timbavati River, which offers outstanding game viewing and is one of the attractions at Kruger National Park. One of the special features of Roodewal Bush Lodge is a lookout platform constructed around an enormous nyala tree which hangs suspended over the banks of the Timbavati.
