About SW1 Lodge

SW1 Lodge was birthed in 2006.

SW1 Lodge is owned by Terri Coyle, a veteran of the South African fashion industry.

With Zimbabwean and Scottish origins it follows that her vision would be EuroAfrican inspired.

She personally designed and decorated the lodge and gardens to the highest level of tastefulness sourcing locally and using homegrown talent wherever possible.


No expense has been spared in creating an aesthetic that is wholly distinctive, unpretentious, and luxuriously comfortable.

Ed Pearce, SW1’s GM, has many years experience in the hospitality and restaurant sectors, in both ownership and management. His natural flair, business acumen and affinity to creating the best guest experience ensures a visit to or stay at SW1 will exceed all expectations.

Ed is assisted by a small committed team most of whom have been at SW1 for several years and a few since its opening in 2006. Expect to meet John, Mercy,  Hessie & Charlman who love what they do and look forward to making your stay special.
