BOMA AND LAPA
The welcoming smell and sounds of the fire makes the Boma legendary for brining people together. Built in a traditional circular shape, the boma is a favourite gathering spot for re-telling exciting events of the day. Just a walk away from the chalets and main lodge, guests can treat themselves to a hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows under the brilliantly star-lit sky. Up to 80 seats can also be set up if guests choose to enjoy the buffet or set menu meals in this warm, cosy spot.
You can also enjoy the serene outdoor ambience at our Lapa which is conveniently attached to the Boma area. This is a wonderful outdoor venue for any occasion, and can also seat up to 80 people. With buffet services and a fully stocked bar, the Lapa can be used for weddings, conferences, or casual gatherings. This location has proven to be a favourite, combing the natural, rustic setting and professional hospitality from our staff.
Lookout offers a wide variety of activities some for the whole family or for team building and includes game drivers, cocktail hunt, archery, bush walks and more.
The Lookout Lodge is situated on an eco-estate in the breath-taking Loskop Valley. The area is known for being an extension of the sweet low-veld, which is a highly productive region that has a multitude of soil types and therefor the landscape and veld types vary greatly, which in turn offers the best forage for a wide variety of animals.
Riverine woodland, characterised by huge Maroelas and beautiful Tambotie trees, gives way to rolling Koppies with their Redbushwillow and Knobthorns that keep the resident browsers content. Animals such as the Chacma Baboon, Cape Eland, Greater Kudu, Giraffe and Impala all prosper from the rich nourishment contained in these hills. The ever-present Waterbuck and Warthogs will have you entertained at the waterholes while as the haunting rasp of a lone Leopard fills the air with anticipation of the night.
