The Lodge is about 45 minutes from Montagu along a mostly gravel road which is in pretty good condition. You pass through some beautiful Klein Karoo mountain scenery and interesting vegetation to get there, and the Lodge itself is set in a very peaceful valley. There is a restaurant/bar and swimming pool for guests use and the accommodation is in pretty thatched eco-cottages and a tent on decking overlooking a dam. Len and Mandy are wonderful hosts and their commitment to conservation shines through everything they are doing. No big five squashed into compounds here and no big five prices - instead tranquility, solitude (except when the ostrich tries to eat lunch with you!) and a host of animals in an appropriate environment.
