Relaxed start to our trip

Great welcome from the owners, an entertaining evening and wonderful dinner. Certainly a place we would return too. There are lots if plans and ideas from the new owners who have a passion for the place.

We loved the dune chalet room as you were surrounded by the warm colours of the kalahari and could enjoy the sunset.

Okay for one night

Perhaps we would have enjoyed our stay more if we had been in one of the chalets on the ridge. We had a wonderful early morning walk with three bushmen - booked the night before as an extra. It was fascinating.

However, on our return for a shower before checking out, they were working on the toilet (why could they not do so when we were out or after our departure ?). It was just rather irritating as we were not aware of any problem.

Expert Africa comments

Expert Africa forwarded these travellers' comments to Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch, who thanked the guests for their constructive feedback. They apologise for the disturbance when they arrived back from their Bushman Walk. A new member of the maintenance staff was not familiar with the time that guests check out and the maintenance team had not informed reception that they would be in these travellers' room at this time. Bagatelle will ensure that this will not happen again.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

Sadly didn't arrive in time for the cheetah drive,but helpful staff, and nice dining area, Did enjoy their tame springbok. The dinner was good with attentive staff

Unfortunately their Meercats did not seem to be around,I don't think they quite realise what a tourist attraction they are!
Rostock have capitalised on their group,and everyone had called there for lunch to see them.
didn't stay long enought to do the place justice.

Great cheetahs and meercats

Well worth booking the stilted chalets - very spacious and well appointed with stunning views.

My least favourite place of my trip

I did not like Bagatelle, I'm sorry to say.

I found the staff neither particularly helpful or friendly. I also very much disliked the keeping of three cheetah solely s for the benefit of tourists in an enclosure no bigger than a small English field.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

After having seen so much free-roaming animals, it was a bit dissappointing to see cheetahs in an enclosure. However, these cats are not easy to spot and this was the only chance we had to see them, which we greatly appreciated. We had the chance to see them getting fed from really close by.

The food was ok and the room was nothing special. The place was a good stop on our way from Wolwedans back to Windhoek in order to make the drive a bit less heavy.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

We enjoyed the cheetah experience. We hadn't seen cheetahs on any of our previous game drives in Zambia. And, to watch them get fed was neat.
