Accommodation

Step back in time at African Hills Safari Lodge while enjoying modern comforts. We have a range of accommodation options including executive, standard and deluxe rooms, as well as two garden cottages and twelve garden suites. We cater for romantic getaways, leisure stays, conferences, teambuilding initiatives, training courses and or weddings in total 48 rooms.

The interior of our rooms captures the romance and essence of ‘Africa meets Antique Dutch’ with décor pieces dating back to the 1800s. Slipper baths, wash stands, luggage chests, antique oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the luxury four-star surrounding, to emphasise the captivating history of the Magaliesberg area. The dark grey exteriors blend effortlessly with the natural surrounds while spacious patios (stoeps) provide a respite from the warm day after a game drive.

The Main Lodge (the old Bodenstein family farmhouse) overlooks the Elephant Dam and invites guests to take a step back in time while admiring South African décor pieces dating back to the 1800s. African Hills Safari Lodge also has one of the largest private collection of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800-1900.

A variety of stone and iron-age artefacts, items from the SA War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the Museum and guided Bush Walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings (petroglyphs) can be found.

Nature lovers and birding enthusiasts will find the experience most rewarding, while stressed city dwellers will leave feeling rejuvenated and well-rested.

Located in the heart of the Lodge entire Spa opens up on to an outdoor relaxation area, private garden and pool. Soothe away the stress of modern life and dissolve impurities, under the gentle fingers of our therapists.

Verified reviewexcellent

Askari Lodge is an excellent break away holiday destination. Outstanding service from all staff. Excellent food. A beautiful setting where you can relax and unwind. Abundant wildlife and a great variety of game is one of the highlights and a game drive is highly recommended. Meeting the elephants an experiencing them close up is an incredible experience. Well worth a visit.

Verified reviewexcellent

We spent a night at Askari lodge for our Honeymoon and it was absolutely breath taking. Food was top class and such a pleasant atmosphere. The staff treated us like gems and they didnt even know it was our honeymoon night untill we told them. The room was clean, the spa treatment was just a way to calm down the long and exciting day. Upon checking out we heard that they have two beautiful elephants that come say hi.. That was an experience that neither my wife or i could have imagined. Will definitely be going there again for anniversaries and also evem a family holiday... My kids will love it there. THANK YOU ASKARI AND STAFF!
