The lodge’s geographic location makes for pleasant weather conditions all year round, with the temperature seldom below 5 degrees or above 32 degrees C. The Lodge is only 2 hours 15 minutes from Pretoria and if arranged, guests are welcome to vacate their unit only after lunch on the day of departure.

Activities and Attractions
Game can be viewed by self-drive, mountain bikes or self-guided walks (bring your own bikes). There are spectacular rock formations, which have been formed over millions of years, from where game such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, kudu and blesbuck, can be viewed.
There are three restaurants, a Predator Park, a Wild Life Centre and a Reptile Park within 15 minutes drive from the Lodge. During the months of March to September there are monthly game auctions which are an experience of their own. One can also do the 60 kilometre 4 x 4 route (at extra cost) or drive to the Waterberg Kloof Pass (25 km’s) with its 100m high granite cliff faces or visit the nearby crocodile farm.
