The Lodge is smaller and more intimate than its counterpart, the hotel, although the offering is on par. It usually consists of a series of structures:
The Main Lodge, which houses the reception, lounge, bar, dining area (many lodges offer a separate outdoor Boma), a deck overlooking a watering hole and communal swimming pool (or private plunge pools at each suite/ room).

The Secondary structures usually are the rooms or suites which comprises a bedroom, seating area, bathroom (some even offer outdoor baths and showers) and a private deck.
