Brief Description Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch:

The lodge lies on the edge of the Southern Kalahari in the mixed tree and shrub Savanna.  The ranch is characterized by huge red sand dunes running parallel, and in a northern-westerly to south-easterly direction.  The old farmhouse was extensively altered, upgraded and renovated to not only serve as a residence, but also as the main centre of the Lodge.  An entrance hall leads to the reception, lounge, dining room, bar & cellar, library and office.  There is a swimming pool and reception area.  An open air lapa for outdoor meals captures the atmosphere of an African Safari.  Although tree styles of chalets are provided, all have the same standard of luxury and finished quality.  Four chalets, constructed of wood and on stilts are built on top of a Kalahari sand dune, with unsurpassed views to the Southwest.  The other six chalets are built in the valley between the dunes.  These chalets are built of ‘hay bales’ with walls 600mm thick, the insulation and atmosphere are equally effective and tranquil.  The four garden courts are next to the lodge in their own garden.  The main difference between the styles of chalets besides the construction method, is the fact that the dune chalets have a bath and shower, while the ‘hay bale’ chalets only have a shower.  The garden courts are adjoined.  The standard and quality of finish is the same for all their chalets, with exquisite décor and equipped to exceed expectations.
