Bergplaats Game Lodge welcomes you to the heart of the Central Karoo. Situated 75km outside Beaufort West, Bergplaats Game Lodge offers a peaceful place where guests can come to replenish their souls and enjoy the beauty of God’s unspoilt nature.
The farm consists of 8500 hectares private land and is set against the backdrop of a rugged mountain. It supports a huge variety of plants, more than 12 kinds of game and over 300 bird species. At night, you will see a spectacular sight looking up at the canopy of stars over Bergplaats. This is a place where you are humbled and reminded of the wonder of God’s creation.
Bergplaats also serves as a private hunting destination for both local and international visitors. The farm is equipped with its own meat preparation facilities and is known for the excellent biltong/droëwors/braaiwors, as well as the neat and quick processing of the hunter’s kill.
Bergplaats also has a landing strip for small planes.
There are three options available:
