Accomodation

Saragossa Game Lodge

A luxury boutique hideaway, Saragossa Game Lodge is nestled in the heart of the reserve, surrounded by dams, streams, savannah and bushveld. The original homestead, built in the 1920s, was recently restored to preserve its old world atmosphere and original charm. In keeping with the grand colonial style of the lodge, all suites and rooms are decorated with the same understated elegance of bygone years.

The leisure rooms include a cosy lounge, a bar with an open fireplace, a cigar lounge and whiskey bar, a wine cellar and a dining room. The spacious veranda looks out onto grasslands where animals come to graze.

Up to 18 guests can be accommodated in the main lodge and the villa. The lodge comprises four garden suites, two lodge rooms and a honeymoon suite. The separate villa has two double bedrooms.

Saragossa Game Lodge has a large heated swimming pool with Jacuzzi seats, a pool bar and a scenic wedding and events venue (lapa). We offer a variety of unique activities.

The pool is centrally situated for guests to use at any time. During the day the pool bar serves drinks and snacks while guests can relax and enjoy the sun and stunning surroundings.

Indulge in a soothing massage, relax at the pool, go on a game drive or simply sit on the veranda and watch the animals come to drink from the streams.

Enjoy with us the beauty of Africa and the bliss of this magical place.
