Dinokeng is a farm about 50km from Johannesburg.

Dinokeng Lodge (Private) is built on a most beautiful site at the confluence of the Crocodile & Hennops rivers. The rivers are weired up forming a substantial body of flat water behind which is a high cliff face. The site is well endowed with many large indigenous trees.

The concept was to integrate with the environment by fragmenting the building into a number of separate structures centred around the entertainment centre, to which the bedrooms are connected via raised timber walkways.

The lodge is being used both by family and for business purposes.
