Askari Safari Lodge, South Africa

Askari Game Lodge

4* Luxury Game Lodge in the Plumari Private Game Reserve in the Magaliesberg, 

Askari Game Lodge & Spa is situated on the Plumari PrivateGame Reserve in the Magaliesberg, just over an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria and offers guests a memorable Big 5 wildlife experience within a malaria-free environment.

The Reserve is set within a pristine wilderness of 6800 hectares with natural African Bushveld and an abundance of flora, fauna, bird and wildlife.

The Main Lodge overlooks the Elephant Dam and invites guests to take a step back in time while admiring South African décor pieces dating back to the 1800s. Slipper baths, wash stands, luggage chests, antique Oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the 4* surrounding, to emphasize the captivating history of the Magaliesberg area.

Askari Lodge has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 – 1900. A variety of stone and iron-age artefacts, items from the SA War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the Museum and guided Bush Walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings (petroglyphs) can be found.

Askari Game Lodge & Spa caters for romantic getaways, conferences, teambuilding initiatives, training courses and weddings in its 48 rooms, the Main Lodge and the Day Visitors Centre.

Nature lovers and birding enthusiasts will find the experience most rewarding, while stressed city dwellers will leave feeling rejuvenated and well-rested.

Located in the heart of the Lodge is the Spa which opens up on to an outdoor pool and private garden.
