About Koffylaagte Game Lodge

The Karoo Heartland in the Eastern Cape is renowned for its rugged panoramic mountain ranges, wide open plains, unpretentious hospitality, quaint towns, and much desired peace and tranquility.

Against this magical backdrop, only 130km from Port Elizabeth, on the R75 mid-way to Graaff-Reinet and roughly a 90 minutes` drive from the Port Elizabeth airport you will find Koffylaagte Game Lodge. This TGCSA 4 star graded lodge is home to a wealth of wildlife

Retaining much of the character, simplicity, history and culture of the days when the early settler traders used this spot as a resting place on their travels between the coast and the interior, Koffylaagte transports you from the modern world to a simpler, more peaceful, tranquil time.


Our lodge offers both full board accommodation in our stunning safari style thatched tents and lodge rooms as well as self-catered or family accommodation in our traditional 1800s farmhouse or eco-friendly solar powered bush cabin.

Sit back and relax whilst taking in the uninterrupted vistas of the Karoo. Take a drive, a guided walk, or even a horseback trail through our game reserve then allow the cares of the world to pass you by as you take a dip in our pool or unwind in our sauna. If you’re feeling adventurous, bring your own mountain bike and attempt our mountain pass!

There are a number of aspects that make Koffylaagte interesting! The very rich history is one. Artefacts are still found dating back centuries, like pennies from 1917 and bicycle license plates to name only 2 of many.

We have won the Lilizela Tourism award having been nominated 3 consecutive years for Best Wildlife Encounters. There is no other place on earth whereby horses graze with rhino while the domestic cat watches on a few centimetres from them intermingled with baby lambs and chickens and a porcupine that comes to eat the dogs food from inside the manager's homestead while the latest female ostrich comes to eat out of the owners plate while he enjoys his lunch outside.

The fauna, flora and unique vegetation such as the Queen of the day, the shepherd's tree and plum tree as well as the largest, oldest endangered elephant foot tree provide for a botanical paradise. These are just a few of the aspects that make Koffylaagte the magical gem that it is.

Sample Karoo hospitality at its warmest and most authentic and let us share with you our magical piece of South Africa.
