One night stay - too short

One night stay at Bagatelle G R was too short to feel the Kalahari. We believe that on a trip like this a minimum of two nights should at least, be considered (unless the place is used for a "stylish" overnight stay).

By staying two nights we surely could have taken more from the activities offered. It was a pitty not be able to see the Meerkats! Nevertheless the morning game drive was very rich and highy enjoyable. Pedro our homonymous guide was helpfull and tried to get us the elusive meerkats but unsuccessfully.

Overall : Bagatelle is highly recommended and is to be enjoyed for at least two nights.

Expert Africa comments

We too agree that two nights here gives you more time to relax and do activities. We had tried to book these travellers into Bagatelle for two nights, however unfortunately, it was fully booked for the second night.

A great place to start our holiday

A warm welcome on arrival. We stayed in one of the straw bale chalets, which was very spacious and comfortable.

Wish we had arrived in time for the afternoon nature drive.

Cheetahs and Springbok

A good place to start the holiday. Our room was comfortable and had good views. An enjoyable place to seeing even if a little lacking in "atmosphere".

Feeding the Cheetahs and walking with them is a must and an incredible experience but watch out for the pet Springbok!

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

Excellent in every way.

A great place to stay on the first night, especially if you can get one of the dune bungalows.

Very friendly staff and great relaxed atmosphere. Accomodation of a very high standard.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review

Very nice, luxurious and wellmaintained bungalows, decorated in African style.

Beautiful area where we, among other animals, saw very special birds, like two giant eagle owls, a pygmy falcon and a Kori bustard! Special thanks to our guide Paul who is very enthousiastic (!!) and helpful. The manager, Cilas, and the restaurant staff are very friendly too.

Good food and a beautifully decorated buffet. This lodge really has style and offers service on a high level!

Kalahari with Meercats

This is a straightforward drive from Windhoek. Watch out for the ranch's drive it is very sandy and we nearly got stuck but it is the Kalahari after all.

Look out for the Meercats, they are great fun and if you take the time to sit still they will come right up to you.

Very good sun downer trip with great night skies. Equally take a bottle of wine up to the dune deck and watch the sun set from the edge of the camp.
