Festive seasons are made to be with your loved ones. What better way to spend the season than taking a road trip with a night or two’s stay at each of the Northern Cape Famous Lodges?

Not only is the natural surrounding our five lodges beautiful, but the available packages will fit your pocket as well. This summer is made for a relaxing holiday, as well as enjoying pristine activities in nature.

If you decide on taking a tour to visit each of our lodges, we suggest you stop at Letsatsi Lodge first, situated on the border of Vanrhynsdorp. At this lodge you will find lovely on-site swimming pools, perfect for catching a summer tan while staying cooled off.

A traveller from Cape Town visited Molopo Lodge and said the following: “We stayed at Molopo Lodge on our way to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Upon arrival we received an unexpected upgrade to the 5-star Molopo Villa. What a wonderful experience. The villa is equipped with everything you could think of. The braai area with grid, firelighters, etc. was really handy and we enjoyed a lovely evening around the fire.”

From sandboarding on the beautiful red dunes, to relaxing at the sparkling blue pool of this lodge, each and every one will find something to enjoy at Molopo Lodge.
