Braai Safaris is a small and intimate private company

Braai Safaris Lodge is located inside the private and secure Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, in the town of Hoedspruit, South Africa.

Perfectly situated between the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon, which is a beautiful and conserved part of the Lowveld bush, the Wildlife Estate hosts great birdlife and plains game such as: zebras, giraffes, kudus, warthogs and impalas just to name a few, but also with some occasional visits from leopards, hyenas and nocturnal animals from the surrounding Greater Kruger National Park.


Braai Safaris was established as an idea to combine the experience of a Braai and a Safari together to recreate our tradition.

Braai is a word derived from the Afrikaans language referring to the rustic method of cooking meat on an open fire (barbeque). 

The tradition is so important to us that many choose to celebrate our annual Heritage Day celebrations on 24th September united around a fire –  also affectionately called ‘National Braai Day ‘ (Heritage Day) 

"In South Africa it is impossible to truly connect to the wild environment without a Braai and a Safari."

Marta is of Italian origin, and Wiann is of South African origin. They have been working and living together for more than 10 years. They learned about the bush and expanded their knowledge together.

In their respective areas they have been gaining experience in South Africa’s best Big 5 reserves, including the Timbavati and Klaserie Private Nature Reserves, as well as the world famous Kruger National Park. Wiann is a registered nature guide and Martha has been operating Front-of-House and Customer Reception for lodges within the famous Greater Kruger area.
