Blaauwbosch Lodge

Blaauwbosch Lodge

Set among the rolling hills of the Winterhoek mountain range, Blaauwbosch Lodge is a private safari destination in the heart of the Karoo area of South Africa’s Eastern Cape. In a malaria-free zone, the lodge provides prime “big five” viewing opportunities in its private game reserve. In addition to the wildlife viewing, the development of the game reserve provides meaningful work to the families of the area.

Each thatched chalet offers the ultimate in luxury, from spacious bedrooms to personal dressing rooms. Fine linens, air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom, personal bathrobes, private veranda, and majestic mountain views are standard for each suite. Seven world-class chalets comfortably accommodate up to fourteen guests in total, whether their goal is a romantic getaway or the classic big game safari experience.

Fine dining includes meals prepared by the resident chef along with the best of local wines. Early morning game drives are followed by a generous breakfast. In the evening, dinner features a fusion of African cuisine with a fresh, contemporary twist on universally appealing dishes. Guest relish pairing a South African wines with their meal as well as enjoying sundowners at the end of an exciting game drive.

In addition to Africa’s “big five” (lion, buffalo, elephant, leopard, and rhino), Blaauwbosch Game Reserve is home to a variety of wildlife. Cheetah, giraffe, zebra, antelope, warthog, porcupine, black-backed jackal, cape fox, meerkat, mongoose, baboons, and many bird species inhabit the region. Professional guides lead game drives in search of the magnificent wildlife. An exciting new addition is the “walk and stalk” safari, where guests shadow the cheetah as it stalks its prey.

As one satisfied guest remarked, “This game reserve is luxury with a capital “L.” Friendly staff give their guests excellent service. The accommodation is wonderful and the food second to none. Wayne, our game ranger, was spectacular, and the walk and stalk with the cheetahs was magic. Everythin you could possibly wish for has already been thought of for you.”
