Bagatelle Kalahari Game Lodge lies on the edge of the southern Kalahari in the mixed tree and shrub Savanna. The ranch is characterised by huge red sands dunes running parallel, and in a northern-westerly to south-easterly direction. The valleys in between the parallel dunes are commonly known as ‘streets’.
The design and decor, materials and furnishings gardens and natural settings, all combine to ensure guests live their dream of an African safari. A rambling old farmhouse was extensively altered, upgraded and renovated to not only serve as a residence, but also as the main nerve center of the Lodge. An entrance hall leads to the reception, lounge, dining room, bar & cellar, library and office. The main dining area at Bagatelle Kalahari Game Lodge is an enclosed porch of enormous proportions.
Although two styles of bungalows are provided, both have the same standard of luxury and finish quality. Four chalets, constructed of wood and on stilts are built on top of a Kalahari Sands Dune, with unsurpassed views to the Southwest. The other six bungalows are built in the street or valley between the dunes. These chalets are built of ‘hay balls’ with walls 600mm thick, the insulation and atmosphere are equaled fantastic.
The main difference between the two styles of chalets besides the construction method, is the fact that the wood bungalows have a bath and shower, while the ‘hay ball’ chalets only have a shower. The level of finish is the same for all bungalows, with fans, air conditioners, shower, toilet, vanity basin, writing desk, coffee table, chairs, bed lights, bar fridges, quality linen and decor that will exceed your expectations.
There is a swimming pool and recreation area with a pool table and hammock. An open air lapa for outdoor meals captures the atmosphere of an African Safari.
