About WagonDrift Lodge

Like the many ox wagons that traversed this area in search of a piece of heaven, we found ours and settled into our lovely bushveld setting.

Our lodge is hidden away in a lush clearing amongst dense bush and comprises a central facility with seven separate thatched accommodation units in close proximity to the lodge on the west side.

Each accommodation unit has its own bathroom, catering facilities and private deck.

Located in and around the central lodge building is the lounge with fire place, a bar, library, large deck, jungle gym for kids, a beautiful swimming pool, and a game viewing hide overlooking a waterhole.

Guests are encouraged to explore the bush on foot, along our clearly marked game roads and trails. Guests who would prefer to participate in a game drive of around 2 hours, can make arrangements at Reception.

Our bird life is prolific, with over 200 different types of birds having been spotted in the vicinity. These include barn and pearl spotted owls, secretary birds, hamerkop, hoepoe, red crested korhaan, woodland king fisher, yellow billed and grey hornbills, guinea fowl and varieties of Frankolin to name a few.

Examples of wild life that call WagonDrift their home are Blesbuck, Bush babies, Caracal, Civets, Duiker, Fish (Carp and Tilapia), Genets, Hares, Honey badgers, Impala, Jackal, Kudu, Leopard tortoises, Mongooses, Porcupines, Red hartebeest, Scorpions, Snakes (including, Boomslang, Cobras, File snakes, Puff adders, Pythons), Spiders (variety depending on seasons), Steenbuck, Terrapin, Warthogs, Waterbuck, Wildebeest, Wild boar, and Zebra.

                      What a wonderful place to stay, the staff are so warm and professional and so happy in them self's, a sign that they are taking care of. We felt so welcome and enjoyed every moment of the weekend, The Game drive was so interesting and Des gave us so much info with his knowledge. Whoa...The only negative thing - the was a rat in our unit.Please note, one of the warm botlles was broken, we put it next to the stovethank you so much for every thing

                      What a lovely experience in the bushveld so close to the city. The hosts are friendly and very accommodating, always making sure we were comfortable. The cottages were spacious, comfortable and clean. The venue was peaceful and quiet with abundant wildlife to keep you company. Will definitely return for another visit ... and soon!!!

                      We had a lovely relaxing weekend at Wagondrift. The chalets are very well equipped and everything has been thought of to make your stay comfortable. We went on a couple of bush walks and went on their complimentary game drive which was very informative and enjoyable. Thanks so much to our hosts.

                      We could just enjoy being in the bush but still in a luxury tented campsite with everything we needed without the hassle of having to set up and at a very affordable rate. Beautiful and well maintained bush veld and romantic time away for me and my hubby. Thank you :-)

                      Loved Vlakvark - awesome hospitality, so well equipped, immaculate, freedom, peace and quiet, lovely outside shower, fire under bushveld stars!! A verrrrry tame ostrich shared the campsite with us, she helped herself to our meat on the braai, very helpful in the kitchen and almost got away with my phone, tekkies and braaitang... not to mention the chase around the bush.. al in good spirit!! We had such a good laugh! Thank you Muriel!
