Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch
The Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch lodge lies on the edge of the Southern Kalahari. The ranch is characterised by huge red sands dunes.This ‘Spirit of Africa’ atmosphere, coupled with service, delivered with graciousness and charm, in an unashamedly luxurious setting, will be the hallmarks of this establishment.
A harsh land of relentless sun and searing wind – a land of great thirst and mystery. After the first rains, a land transformed into exquisite beauty with the dunes erupting in a blaze of colour! The Kalahari conjures up different images in the minds of different people. Some see it as a scorching desert. Others see it as their future, built on cattle and sheep, ostriches and wildlife. The Kalahari is all of this, but also something more. The word ‘Kalahari’ means wilderness! Its relative inaccessibility, the harsh unyielding red sand dunes, the uncertain rainfall and lack of surface water, make it truly one of Africa’s last frontiers.
The design and décor of Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch, it’s materials and furnishings, gardens and natural settings, all combine to ensure our 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 Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch Lodge. An entrance hall leads to the reception, lounge, dining room, bar and cellar, library and office.
