overview

Meticulous attention to detail, a large well equipped farm-style kitchen, large dining room, lounge, individually accessed spacious bedrooms, expansive patios and a crystal clear pool make the Lodge a wonderful retreat.

The Lodge is serviced daily by our staff. The wonderful kitchen beckons the enthusiastic cook while the outside dining area with mountain views includes a braai facility. The lapa, with open fire pit, provides a perfect location for sundowners or to enjoy a spectacular night sky away from the impact of city lights. By prior arrangement, and subject to availability, the services of a Chef may be arranged.

This is an ideal location for an extended family celebration, a getaway for a group of friends, or simply an escape to experience the wonderful surrounds.

A rich and diverse environment awaits you. Enjoy the full diversity of the landscape and its wildlife on a game drive.

The estate is home to nearly twenty species of large mammal, including the largest antelope of all, the Eland. Kudu, Oryx, Nyala, Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Blesbok, Springbok, Impala, Lechwe and Giraffe are easily viewed, among others. The endangered Cape Mountain Zebra is well established.

The vegetation varies from Mountain Fynbos to Succulent Karoo and Renosterveld. Protea species can be found in the higher-lying areas, while aloes dominate the landscape on the lower slopes. Most plants flower in the spring, while the protea species tend to flower in autumn, and the bright aloe flowers light up the landscape in winter.
