Official Grading:


Stately and historical, the Lemoenfontein Game Lodge was built as a hunting lodge by an English gentleman in 1850.  In its rich and varied past, it has served as a  TB sanatorium for the wealthy European gentry (perfect with its dry Karoo air); later as a successful farm and ultimately, a game reserve.  However, the buildings themselves have not changed, and have retained their characteristic, high ceilings, original wooden floors and wide, sweeping verandahs.

The lodge sits snugly on the flanks of the Nuweveld Mountains, just a few kilometres from the town of Beauford-West.  It offers amazing views over the Karoo plains.

Ah - tis the stuff that travelling is made of.  Turn off the oft-frenetic N1 towards the stately Lemoenfontein.  It won't be long til you're sipping a tall, bitterly cold drink on the shady verandah while gazing out over the endless vistas.  Special, indeed!

If want you want is comfort and relaxation then we know no better world-wide - and we have travelled. We have stayed here several times and nothing changes. If you want butler services, ostentation, \"super-chef\" meals, lots of new money around you then go elsewhere. If you want great and honest tasty food (help yourself off a large heated sideboard), proper people company and a really comfortable room with all facilities in a most incredible panoramic setting then look no further.

What to pack:
Whatever you do , don't forget to pack your swimming gear in summer. The Karoo gets hot in summer and the sparkling pool is a must. Winters can get cold at night so a good jacket and slippers are in order.

Why visit Lemoenfontein Game Lodge
Best Features: Set up against the Nuweveld mountains overlooking the karoo plains makes this the perfect oasis to kick off your shoes, put up your feet and with drink in hand, and just relax. The pressures of work and travel can wait until it's time - tomorrow or the next day or the next.....

Bear In Mind: The lodge is out of town (not too far though) so take what you need and remember to order the evening meal ahead.

Things to Do and See
Do make the time to do the game drive (early morning or late afternoon). Too many people fly past the Karoo without realising what an amazing place it really is.

Star gazing
Fill your lungs with the crisp, envigorating Karoo air
Guided bushwalks and hikes
Enjoy and soak up the utter stillness and serenity
