About Assegaaibosch Country Lodge

The Lodge is also located near to the southern gateway of the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve, a World Heritage Site which is treasured for its rich biodiversity. This makes the Lodge an ideal base from which guided tours, adventure activities and self drive exploration of the area can be embarked upon. Whether you are in need of relaxation or adventure, time spent at the Assegaaibosch Country Lodge is an investment in wonderful memories.
The rooms at Assegaaibosch Country Lodge have been tastefully furnished with exquisite handpicked items and accessories to cater for your every comfort. The Lodge consists of 13 rooms built around a sparkling blue 15 x 6 meter swimming pool with a wooden deck area. The neighboring Manor House is a luxurious Victorian styled double story house with six rooms.
Crisp white cotton linen blends with wholly natural fabrics and colours to give each room an inviting and effortlessly stylish ambience. Superior quality mattresses will ensure a good night's sleep.

Some rooms look out over bright splashes of wild, colourful gardens, while others open onto the pristine pool deck with the mountains in the distance.
