About Wagendrift Lodge

Situated in the heart of the Karoo, next to the Buffalo River, between Laingsburg and Ladismith, and en route to Seweweekspoort, lies the peaceful, unique and fully contained self catering lodge Wagendrift.

Although one is surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature and its abounds, the choices still remains whether you would like to pass time by leisurely taking a bush walk and doing some bird watching, or getting the adrenalin rush of doing something more physical such as swimming, mountain biking, motorcycle trails or exploring the 4x4 routes. Wagendrift Lodge is also ideally suited for team building exercises.

Please note that the 4x4 route cost R200,00 per vehicle.

          The barbecue set-up on the verandah is very special.We also loved the brand new cottage with everything on hand and and everything spotlessly clean.I highly recommend this establishment and I will definitely be back.Sayidah, who welcomed us and saw to all our needs, is a great asset to the lodge.The gentleman from Israel who gave a very negative review should rather stay in the city - no cell-phone signal was expected, and was a welcome respite from (purported) civilisation!

          This was our second time at Wagendrif and once again we were extremely impressed! An absolute must-stay for anyone who enjoys hospitality and being outdoors yet have a comfortable stay in a beautiful valley.

          Unsuitable for single overnight stay. If you are not familiar with this kind of lodging, you arrive there and find nothing-no coffee or tea, no WiFi, no means of communication, no staffed office, you are totally on your own. If a problem develops it could be a disaster. Unable to call anyone. True we understood that this is self-catering, and brought our own food, but the description of tea and coffee facilities is ambiguous and it should be made clear that nothing is supplied as such. Kettle was dirty, towels old, TV on one channel only, without any instructions. Much overpriced for what you...

          The owners were welcoming, we had such a peaceful night and for someone who likes it clean and well organized, this is definitely the spot for you, but in the middle of the Karoo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only problem - it was too short!
