Welcome to Bergplaats Game Lodge on SA-Venues.com, offering accommodation in Beaufort West, Karoo.
To ensure our clients’ holiday in Africa abounds with pleasant experiences, we make certain each safari is designed to accommodate your needs. Our goal is to share the Africa we love and give you an adventure full of remarkable memories that will last a lifetime.
At the airport you will be warmly received by a member of our professional staff and during the drive to the camp you will learn a lot more about your coming adventure in Africa. At the camp you will fully understand the term African hospitality.
By the time you leave, all of those smiling faces that you met at the start of your safari will be solid friends and you will be planning the return trip as you fly home. It's amazing how a one-time encounter can change your life. The lasting excitement of this personal milestone makes it the yardstick by which you will measure everything else in your future.

Set against a mountain backdrop, the farm supports a huge diversity of more than 1 000 plant varieties from South Africa’s various biomes - the distinct ecological communities of plants in a particular climatic area. Animals abound, and there are more than 50 mammal species, over 300 bird species and numerous reptiles and amphibians in this healthy, malaria-free area.
