This lodge has just three small bungalows situated up on the side of a hill. The only vegetation around is the indigenous scrub of the region. Views over the Zwartberg are beautiful and change every moment according to the light and time of day. No other buildings in sight, just open bush country in undulating hill country.
The host whose name is Jann has many years of experience in game lodge management, and lays on delicious evening meals and breakfast. During the evening meal you can watch the wild animals at close quarters and discuss world politics, or anything else, with Jann and other guests. Jann has an interesting selection of wild animals which he keeps on the property, including Springbok, Zebra and Gnu. He also has an adorable wild African pig which he reared since piglet, and it drives him mad by eating all his precious Aloes.
The area of the Klein Karoo around Oudtshoorn has plenty to see and visit, including Ostrich farms, Cango caves and vineyards.
Overall its a good location to just relax, take gentle walks in the bush and watch the animals and bird life. There is no TV or telephone to disturb you.
