About Askari Game Lodge

Situated on the Plumari Private Game Reserve in the Magaliesberg, just over an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria, Askari Game Lodge offers guests a memorable Big 5 wildlife experience within a malaria free environment.

In celebration of the rich history of the area, Askari Game Lodge has a Market Day on the first Sunday of every month, where guests and visitors can enjoy home-made ginger beer, old fashioned sweets, crafts and good food from 10h00 till 2h00. The craft market tables are set amongst the ox-wagon collection and inside the Plumari Heritage Museum and makes for an wonderful Sunday out in the countryside.

Accommodation

The main lodge overlooks the Elephant Dam and invites guests to take a step back in time while admiring South African décor pieces dating back to the 1800’s. Slipper baths, a coal stove, wash stands, luggage chests, antique Oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the luxury four-star surrounding, to emphasize the captivating history of the Magaliesberg area.

Askari Lodge has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. A variety of stone and iron-age arte facts, items from the Boer War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the nearby Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the museum and guided bush walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings can be found.

Askari Lodge caters for romantic getaways, conferences, teambuilding initiatives, training courses and weddings. Nature lovers and birding enthusiasts will find the experience most rewarding, while stressed city dwellers will leave feeling rejuvenated and well-rested.

The Spa

Askari Spa at Askari Game Lodge reflects the environment that surrounds it – African veldt and wildlife rise up to meet the African sky and majestic Magaliesberg mountain range. This Big 5 Game lodge is scenically set between Hekpoort and Magalieburg and pays tribute to South Africa’s rich archeological and cultural history within a malaria-free environment.

Soothe away the stress of modern life and dissolve impurities, under the gentle fingers of our therapists. The benefits to body and spirit will be truly rewarding.

Pat Naude is one of the best organisers. Askari Management, you have a real gem in her. She goes the extra mile for her clients. Nothing is too much for Pat or her Staff. From the time you arrive until the time you leave you feel totally relaxed and feel totally at home and well looked after. My husband and I have visited Askari since 2008 and only have the best opinion of the Lodge. We will not say anywhere else in the area... Askari is the best !!!..not only good value but love and home comforts as well.

I was on a safari trip with 6 others & the first time I saw Askari Game Lodge, I fell in love with it. It is a clean, friendly, beautiful & peaceful place with lots of interesting things to see & photograph. The staff are ALL very helpful & friendly & always ready to help you with any question you may have. The chalets are clean, very comfortable, spacious & overall just excellent. The food is also excellent & the dining area is very welcoming & relaxing. The game drives are just awesome, you are guaranteed to have a lot of fun & laughter as well as seeing a variety of wildlife every time you go out. There is also ample opportunities to take photographs & the guides/drivers are very informative & passionate about their animals & will answer any questions you may have. They also have a brilliant conference area which would make any work a very pleasurable experience indeed. If you have one chance to visit a Game Lodge, then this is DEFINITELY the place where you should stay, I cannot recommend it highly enough...
