Our lodge is a 200 year old farm house that has been in our family's care for 6 generations. It is nestled in the wild African bushveld in a mountainous amphitheatre in the Sneeuberg Mountain range. Situated in the Central Karoo Region adjacent to the famous farms of "Fountains" and "Cranemere" so aptly described in the book "Plains of the Camdeboo". This is in the heart of the 32 000Ha (80 000 acres) proposed Leopard's Valley Wildlife Conservancy. A mere 40 minutes drive from the very Historic Town of Graaff - Reinet.
Take a leisurely stroll or guided walk amongst the many tall Acacia Karoo trees that are customary in the riverine bush, with abundant red buffalo grass, creating a blanket along the rivers banks. Be truly "in the bush" relaxing in beautiful and tranquil surroundings. Here only the chorus of birds at day break and the lonesome bark of a kudu bull being disturbed, break the silence of the African bush.
We are open to guests all year round in this Bilharzia and Malaria free area. It uses clear spring water of a mineral quality. The camp is serviced daily and offers bed and breakfast or fully catered facilities by prior arrangement.
The lodges sleep 2 people per room, in double or single beds, all with en-suite bathrooms and modern day conveniences. The lodge sleeps up to 8 guests. The en - suite bathrooms each have a double basin set, shower and flush toilet, and 2 rooms have old-fashioned cast-iron baths all with hot and cold water. The guests are treated to Traditional South African Cuisine, with a large garden and pool area to relax in. This is an ideal getaway for a group of family or friends, or simply that quiet weekend on your own.
Sit and stare at the stars, listening to the hoot of the African Owl, while sitting at the large open fire pit. This is also a great place for coming together at night to socialize with friends and discuss the day's adventures.
After a delicious South African supper with red wine, you can retire to your room which is furnished with a comfortable king size bed or 2 single beds, feather duvets and pillows to ensure a good nights rest after a long day. Linen and towels are provided.
