We stayed in the very comfortable and full equipped, self catering, "Dream House" with a jacuzzi on the deck. It is very private. We loved the outdoor bathroom and showering under the stars!! Staff very friendly and helpful. The fire pit was nice to make a fire and sit around after a braai. It is close to the Cango Caves... More

This is an ostrich farm and game reserve just outside Oudtshoorn . The Luxury tents are exactly that - luxurious, well equipped with good hot water, baths, lights, and privacy overlooking the lake (if not in drought as it was when i was there). They are lovely and have a sense of adventure. The staff were really helpful and friendly... More

I visited Chandelier for my Ostrich trip and found it to be awesome. The owner of the ranch and his staff were very warm and welcoming. The Guide Mr. Mark is a highly experienced Ostrich farmer & was fabulous and took us to an in detail and interactive session every bit about Ostriches & their farming. The place offers viewing...

Gerrie and Lisa and their team of expert game rangers and staff went out of their way to make every visitor and guest at Chandelier Game Lodge feel at home. This is one of the most peaceful and pristine areas of the Western Cape of South Africa. The sundowner dinner on the mountain ridge has to be experienced for the... More

We only spent one night at Chandelier in the Rustic Log house and we enjoyed every minute of it. The house was splendidly furnished and was very comfortable. You could choose to eat the delicious 3-course-dinner at the main house or in your own house - both in stunning surroundings. And the almost mandatory ostrich ride was great fun... Hope... More

We visited this gem in the Karoo arriving late on the 1st of January and were very lucky to get one of their lovely air-conditioned houses - a must in this area. It is stylishly decorated and furnished to suit the African style. Liza knows her business and knows what to offer to make your stay totally hassle free. You... More

We wish we could have spent more time at this lovely place. We stayed in the Jakaranda Lodge, about 15 minutes drive from the main facilities. The Lodge has a beautiful view, was clean and comfortable. There is a small swimming pool on the huge deck as well. Our dinner was extremely tasty and satisfied three hungry teenagers. We were...

Mmm, good and not so good. The interior of the tent was definitely 4 stars and very good, so was the dinner. However the tents are very close together which kind of ruins the experience - you can hear everything your neighbors get up to, and makes you wonder why there are outdoor showers. Tents are located in a dry,... More

We took our first family holiday, and booked at Chandelier and had no idea what to expect, but on arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff, and were treated the entire time like we were part of a family. Our little one was allowed to be a little boy, our tents were amazing, the sundowner bush dinner was stunning. Game... More
