Are you looking for that sweet escape from city life? Take a road trip along Route 62 and drive to the heart of the Klein Karoo to enjoy a lavish stay Swartberg Private Lodge.

Swartberg Private Lodge offers a sweet escape from the hustle of the city life. It sits off Route 62, just outside of Oudtshoorn, and follows along a scenic road. Dally with decadence at this colonial-African style lodge. It is seated at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains in the Klein Karoo.

This Lodge has infused a rich ecological experience with the luxury accommodation. They celebrate a diverse ecosystem of over twenty large mammals and the indigenous fynbos biome. Game drives will tag along with the local Renosterveld and Protea flora, where you can spot the zebra, giraffe and antelope grazing on the horizon.

A love affair with Luxury

The interior colours reflect the palette of the Klein Karoo. Muted greys and ochres are dashed with a splash of red or green to echo the warmth of the landscape. The bedrooms are spacious and decked with African style furniture. Open patios stretch alongside the rooms that allow you to step out into the morning and survey the world awakening. And to ensure a good night’s sleep, each bedroom is fitted with extra-length king-size bed topped with cotton percale bed linen.
