Undecided whether to enjoy life in the wilderness with access to the Big Five and the tranquillity of indigenous land or live closer to a world that rolls out all the infrastructure and facilities you need for your lifestyle? There is no need to choose. Kiboko Lodge set in Gondwana Private Game Reserve is perfectly placed to offer owners an extraordinary footprint in a protected sector of the reserve and a lifestyle of freedom and choice.
There is a history to Kiboko Lodge set that speaks of its slow but magnetic pull on those who first built here. At first it was a tentative footprint on the land for the owners, but gradually, its protected position gave the freedom to hike or mountain bike for hours amongst the abundant game, and the night sounds and big sky proved irresistible.
Curved rather like an impala horn, the lodge is designed for uninterrupted views of the indigenous landscape, its broad wooden decks reaching out to face the sun and a nearby dam. On the horizon, the Langeberg and Outeniqua Mountains are a blue haze beyond an 11 000 ha eco-system for the herds that graze on the very doorstep of this lodge.
With its three spacious en-suite bedrooms and guest cottage, the lodge offers both quiet time for family and guests and entertainment areas to meet and recount the magic of the day with a chilled bottle of wine from the lodge’s private cellar. Dine on the deck or when the evenings become cool, gather around the firepit or the sunken indoor boma.
Kiboko Lodge – ‘hippo’ in Swahili – enjoys an extraordinary ‘double life’. It is both wild and yet less than four hours’ drive from Cape Town along one of the most scenic routes in the world, en route to the quaint towns that characterise this sector of the Klein Karoo and under an hour from the world-class Pinnacle Point golf course. Life here is what you choose to make of your time. And all is precious.
