About Askari Lodge Museum

Situated within the Gala Hall at Askari Game Lodge in Gauteng, the museum boasts one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. Tools and other collectibles from that era are also on view in our museum.

The Main Lodge building was built in the mid 1800's. Every effort has been made to restore this wonderful building to the splendour it was some 150 years ago. No structural changes are permitted. Our museum also tells the history of the area, and in particular, the Battle of Nooitgedacht where the British were defeated on 13th December 1900 by the Boers led by Generals de la Rey, Smuts and Beyers. History talks are available on request.

Going much further back in history, San Bushmen carvings and stone age tools also abound in the area. Examples of these are available in the museum, and our bush walks take you through areas where many stone carvings can be found.
