With  “Ystervark” an amazing idea became reality

Since August  2017  “Ystervark” enhances our Chalets and the Luxury Safari Tent by another accommodation which has been built in the bush for the first time in South Africa. Designed by an acclaimed architect who perfectly combines the unusual with the natural. The interplay of light and structure conform naturally into its environment. He called it “Ystervark” – Afrikaans for porcupine.

Brightness, convenience and an exceptional design reflect the virtue of this unique accommodation.

The Lodge

The main lodge is spectacularly built in a tranquil space where the hosts live and welcome the guest in the friendliest way. Wholesome food with wines to match and a warm hospitality await the new arrivals. Dinner can be served in an African boma around a crackling fire under wide, star-studded skies, where stories are told and one wishes the evening would never end. The Lodge provides many reference books, books about botany, wildlife and art.
