Situated in the heart of the Karoo, next to the Buffalo River, between Laingsburg and Ladismith, and enroute to Seweweekspoort, lies the peaceful, unique and fully contained self catering lodge Wagendrift.
Although one is surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature and its abounds, the choices still remains whether you would like to pass time by leisurely taking a bush walk and doing some bird watching, or getting the adrenalin rush of doing something more physical such as swimming, mountain biking, motorcycle trails or exploring the 4x4 routes.
Wagendrift Lodge is also ideally suited for teambuilding exercises, hosting a spacious conference centre and entertainment area, as well as comfortable sleeping facilities for up to 22 people including 10 additional camping sites.
A large, clean and refreshing swimming pool can be used to cool off during hot summers. Beautifully lit up at night!
Braai facilities are available for both the main lodge and cottages. Our shared kitchen and entertainment areas are fully equiped and spacious.
Three identical cottages with comfortable accommodation for 4 people. Each cottage has its own bathroom as well as a shared braai facility and entertainment area, overlooking an amazing mountain view. Each cottage has its own veranda where you can sit back and relax, watch the sunset over the mountains, and enjoy the wildly sounds of nature.
