On the edge of the southern Kalahari, Bagatelle Game Ranch is a former farmhouse converted into the main lodge, and ten chalets are dotted around the property.
Some are located in the gardens around the farmhouse, while six are dune chalets and built in a nearby valley. While the chalets look plain from the outside, the rooms are spacious, with comfortable double beds, local artwork and a cosy feel. The chalets in the dunes are made with walls of hay bales, which creates a feeling of serenity and restfulness inside the rooms.
Bagatelle Game Ranch has a varied garden area and encompasses an area of Savannah and small red sand dunes.
Some of the chalets sit in a valley between sand dunes and the top of a dune is a great place to watch the Namibian sunset.
There are also four garden rooms next to the lodge, designed with a thatched overhang verandah. The main farmhouse has had an upgrade since its humble beginnings and now includes a comfortable lounge, dining room, bar, wine cellar and library with books and videos on ‘everything Africa’.
There is also a swimming pool at Bagatelle Game Lodge, and a dip, or a nap in one of the hammocks, is the perfect way to relax after the three-hour drive from Windhoek.
Bagatelle Game Lodge is a great stopover when on the way south to Fish River Canyon or if you want to see the lesser visited inland areas of Namibia.
