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.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

Well managed and we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff.

The Cheetah feeding and sun downer before dinner was a nice experience.

Good stay at Bagatelle

Good to be able to walk around by ourselves and get a feel for the area around the camp.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

Lovely property. Wished we could have stayed a second night. Two nights would definitely be preferable.

Interesting game viewing, nice chalets and good food and wine.

Managers and staff were very welcoming.

Our wonderful Out of Africa experience.

Although this ranch did not have a variety of game it was a wonderful stopover. Unfortunately for us we only one night here. The main house was reminiscent of 'Out of Africa' and was definitely a favourite for us. Tame springbock joined us for breakfast.

The sunset game drive was most enjoyable complete with sundowners with a very good guide. Would love to go back!

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

We were warmly received at the ranch and the staff were helpful and friendly. The bungalows were beautifully situated and well appointed. The courtyard in which we had dinner was very atmospheric although the food itself was only average.

We were not totally convinced about the scientific basis for the cheetah sanctuary however and as a game ranch it was very limited. It would be hard to imagine staying there multiple nights.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

We stayed in one of the wooden chalets built on stilts, which enjoyed a wondeful view of a small waterhole. We did the game drive in the afternoon which was very enjoyable.

Evening meal was a buffet affair which was very good. Staff were very accommodating. Lovely place to stopover on trip south.
