Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch
The Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch is on the western edge of the Kalahari, about 50km from Mariental. Surrounded by red dunes, bleached blonde grass and a spattering of acacias, this is the Kalahari of storybooks and documentaries.
Transitioned from game ranch to luxurious lodge with little impact on the delicate ecosystem, this lodge has various air-conditioned chalets: six on stilts atop a dune, eight on the valley floor and built with straw bales, six garden rooms at the main lodge and eight rooms at the exclusive 'Farmhouse'.
The main lodge is a comfortable and stylish focal point with a library, lounge, cellar, bar, open-air dining area and a swimming pool. The whole lodge looks out over a waterhole and the parallel ridges of red dunes that form grass-covered streets in the desert.
Six dune chalets on stilts (two are dune exclusive honeymoon suites), eight savannah chalets, six garden rooms; all en suite with shower and some with a bath tub; air conditioned; hairdryer; safe; minibar; coffee and tea facilities
Bar; wine cellar; library; swimming pool; WiFi at the main lodge
The Farmhouse: eight en suite rooms with shower and bath; air conditioned; hairdryer; safe; minibar; coffee & tea facilities; dining room; terrace and infinity pool
Nature drives (sunrise, sunset and night safaris); walk with the Bushmen; video library; cheetah feeding; horse riding; star gazing and spa treatments
You will share your place in the sun with a menagerie of habituated wildlife and protected cheetahs; giraffe love the acacia trees and are always at hand to complete that classic Kalahari photo. Nature drives, walks and sundowners will reveal a beautiful wilderness with fascinating flora and fauna.
