(OUT OF TOWN)
CHANDELIER GAME LODGE ACTIVITIES
Situated between the lush forests and spectacular coastlines of the Garden Route and the breathtaking arid beauty of the Klein Karoo countryside, Chandelier Game Lodge Activities offers the perfect retreat.
They’re only 7km from Oudtshoorn and a 50-minute drive from George Airport, making it easy to explore all the amazing sights, not only in the Klein Karoo area, but the Garden Route as well.
This 3500ha lodge of Cape fynbos, river bushveld and succulent Karoo with its 122km of land rover tracks, is ideal for game viewing safaris. Chandelier hosts 23 species of antelope and a large number of free-roaming Waterbuck, Bontebok, Kudu, Sable, Lechwe and other game.
You might even be lucky enough to spot the elusive black backed jackal or the rare indigenous leopard. Guests have the opportunity to get up close to the animals either from the comfort of the land rovers, on quad bikes or on foot.
To properly enjoy all there is to see and do in these parts, best give yourself a bit of extra time. Enjoy a relaxing stay in our luxury safari tents or log cabins while leisurely exploring all the wonders in the region. Guests can join us at our on-site restaurant for delicious traditional cuisine and lovely local wines.
Chandelier’s giraffe experience is a favourite amongst guests and provides some beautiful photo opportunities with these loveable beauties. Shorty and Sheila were rescued as babies when, unfortunately, neither of their mothers were able to raise the two calves.
Today Shorty and Sheila are healthy, happy and free to re-join the rest of the giraffe herd whenever they please. They do, however, love all the attention they receive from our guests and therefore like to stay close to the restaurant.
Come try your hand at bottle feeding these two or buy them some tasty treats at the curio shop which you can feed them by hand.
Come learn more about the once endangered Cape buffalo and one of South Africa’s Big 5. A short drive or easy walk will take you to Chandelier’s buffalo breeding herd where you can get some remarkable close-ups of these majestic creatures.
The Buffalo calves are born throughout the year, which means you’ll be lucky enough to see some babies regardless what time you choose to visit.
OSTRICH FARM TOURS:
As ostrich capital of the world, Oudtshoorn’s huge birds have long been a favourite attraction amongst visitors. That’s why the folks at Chandelier have taken special care to make their ostrich show farm experience exceptional.
Our professional guides will make sure you have a great time learning all there is to know about ostriches. The tour is an easy walk-through of the farm, making it perfect for all ages. For those wanting to get real close, grab your chance and feed these giant birds by hand.
These big guys are also famous for being fiendishly fast. Grab your racing cap for the highlight of the tour and watch our professional jockeys compete in the Chandelier ostrich race.
SUNDOWNER BUSH DINNER:
Don’t miss out on this authentic African dining experience. This amazing bush dinner takes guests up in the mountains for a traditional South African barbecue out in the pristine veld with spectacular views of the surrounding Karoo landscape.
Enjoy a sundowner while watching the sunset over the Swartberg Mountains and seeing the fiery red sky make way for a star-studded night sky. This 3-course dinner lets you dig into some traditional South African treats and tender cuts of kudu, ostrich and springbuck perfectly grilled over the sizzling coals. (Drinks are not included, so please place your drink order in advance when booking your sundowner dinner.)
Next up, stargazing from the lapa. You haven’t seen stars till you’ve looked up at the brightly lit Karoo night sky! We end a perfect evening with a night drive, using spotlights to take a sneak peek what the creatures of the night are up to. And then, off to your luxury tented chalet for a restful night’s sleep.
Ever wondered how the indigenous people of the Klein Karoo lived? This semi-dessert region, seemingly devoid of life, is all but a dead landscape and is home to an amazing diversity of life that has adapted to survive its harsh conditions.
Chandelier’s Khoi-San trail offers a unique experience, sharing the fascinating story of these indigenous people, their culture, traditions and extraordinary relationship with this arid environment.
Starting off with a short game drive, guests can get a good look at the landscape of the Khoi-San, before stopping at a traditional hut to meet their Khoi-San guide, Njoem.
Dressed in his traditional clothing, Njoem leads the tour, explaining all about the culture and traditions of his people. This informative tour is an absolute must and takes approximately 1h 15min.
