Enjoy Your Stay
with us

If you want to stay in a hotel which gets its star rating by the size of the mirrors etc., this is not your place.

But if you want to have a special, unique, unforgettable enrichment of your life, then this should be your destination. Why? Where else will you look at animals in nature when you open the curtains of your wall size window/glass door? (Instead of the door of the room across the passage.)

We aim to be quiet and peaceful, although occasionally there is a genuine South African Braai (meat/fire) with face painting and African dancing (e.g. Jerusalema). There are only 27 rooms.

Our exclusivity reaches a climax when you realise that you can comfortably explore this interesting part of our planet, right from here. Tours to the “Big Bang Theory” (Cradle of Humankind), Safaris to professional Lion, Cheetah, Elephant Sanctuaries or the Pilansberg Game reserve (in a 22 km Vulcanic crater), or even modern history (Apartheid Museum) are possible. The biggest diamond ever (currently in the British Crown) stems from Culinan, but why not absorb the Gold Rush of 1880 with a visit inside such a deep level gold mine? These tours start and end right here – is that not first class?

Whilst you do Yoga or sports in the open air, you will be immersed in nature: At Airport Game Lodge our animals die of old age (or snake bites). The cycle of life will make you philosophise – in nature your life expectancy is only as long as your guard (or those in your herd) is up.

The Highveld is 1.4 km above sea level. That means that there is that amount less atmosphere, which makes Star Gazing simply amazing. Again, your value of life will take on a different meaning when faced with the Milky Way…

And needless to say there are several very nice Golf Courses nearby.

Of course, if you have had tiring flight and want to stay over before (or after) this place is only 10km from the Airport and your transfer is FREE. (The car rental companies bring their cars right here for you.)

First class, unique, special? Or go and look at yourself in the mirror…
