About Vultures Lodge

Vultures Lodge nestles in the shade of the spectacular sandstone mountain, Aasvoëlberg. At 2207m (approximately 7240 feet), it is the highest peak in the province and has a unique feature, a 9 meter wide hole between two huge buttresses; the famous 'eye'. The mountain is a backdrop for the town Zastron in the south eastern Free State province of South Africa.

Vultures Lodge takes its name from the Cape Vulture (Gyps Coprotheres), which has favoured the cliffs of the mountain for nesting for a long time and is the site of the only colony of Cape Vultures to be found in the Free State.

We stayed for one day at Vultures Lodge, after a family function. The reception we received was exceptional. Samantha was the person who welcomed us. We immediately felt at home. She was extremely friendly and very helpful. Before we left, we had breakfast. It was phenomenal and prepared with love. I would recommend this venue to everybody, you will not be disappointed. We will be back there soon!!!
