The “Scimitar Lodge”, our new lodge with all the modern day features & airconditioning. Scimitar Lodge is all about comfort convenience and luxury, with its own “braai facility”.
The “Bontebok Lodge”, as well as the sleeping lodges, are nestled amongst the typically dry Karoo scrub and trees. All the lodges are equipped with 220V power supply, pure running water, fans for the warmer days and heaters for turning in after a winter’s day hunt and campfire.
In the early mornings, after sunrise, it is not uncommon to find zebra and bontebok grazing within sight of your front door. The lodges are as close to nature as you will find anywhere.
Situated in the main Bontebok Lodge you will find a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerators, stove and other necessities, which runs through to the dining room, lounge, bar and pool table. To finish off the entertainment amenities there is, of course, a big barbecue area, where you may enjoy our African hospitality around the campfire at night.
Each of the four chalets has 2 double rooms with 2 or 3 single beds and/or double beds, fully equipped with bed linen and towels and safes for valuables. Every room has its own en-suite bathroom.
The Eastern Cape is malaria free and the weather is quite variable. It is not uncommon to have four seasons in one day. Come prepared with warm clothing, cool clothing and rain clothing. You are welcome to bring camo clothing as there will be no problem on entry into South Africa with it.
Medical services are available within 50km from the ranch. Emergency evacuation to Port Elizabeth can be arranged. It is essential to bring a good sunblock for protection against the African sun.
A refreshing addition to the Bontebok Lodge is the swimming pool. Guests, friends and clients are all welcome to make use of this facility in the tranquil atmosphere of the game farm.
Roger, a hunter from Sweden, comments as follows:
“I can’t wait until I’m in the pool, relaxing after a good day of hunting.”
