Been here for (unfortunately only) one night, just some days after Kayla and DeJan took over the management of the lodge. It was absolutely fabulous. The lodge itself and the hospitality of them made each of the 15 (!) gates worth while. It was like a stay at good friends. The houses are nice and cosy, the lodge is well...

Knowing other places in Africa the Grassland Bushmen Safari Lodge - on a 55 km2 cattle ranch - is not a place for me to visit again; it's not only the situation of having castrated lions in cages nearby, but also funny fencing of lawns....the pool was OK after insisting to get filled, the served dinner was not the standard...

The new managers Krismarie and her partner did a great job making us feel at home, and went the extra mile to making our stay even more comfortable. We did not mind, but you need to know that it is a 1 - 1 1/2 h drive from the main road, something they tell you before you book. The campsite...

This time we enjoyed the campsite for 2 nights and had the Bushman walk the next morning. Paula and Pierre were great hosts, the bushman walk (2nd time) was another great experience and we learned a lot again, especially for the kids. The campsite was great, private and had all what you need, additionally a great view from shower/toilets, sometimes...

The managers Paula and Pierre couldn't have been more welcoming. The lodge is in a very remote area filled with the best food we had in Africa (home made). We combined walking in the bush with the very authentic Bushmen tribe with massages and even a much needed pedicure. We sat at dinner with Paula and Pierre as we watched...

The best place to experience the disappering culture of the San (Bushmen) and get a glimpse of how our ancestors lived in the dawn of times. The relocation projects of lions and wild dogs are very interesting to see and admirable. Pierre the manager will bend over backwards to make you feel comfortable and spoil you rotten with game drives,...

We stayed for 2 nights (minimum recommended) and enjoyed the birds and the wildlife, even during dinner/night at the illuminated waterhole. In the morning we did a bush walk with a San family, was absolutely great. One afternoon we visited a San village and gained insight into their life (authentic) and the different dances. We also tried wildebeest liver out...

We were at the Grassland Lodge in October 2015 and it was absolute wonderful. The chalets in the lodge are clean and very pretty. A water hole with Zebras, Oryx and many other animals and a delicious dinner makes the stay more than perfect. We made a “bushman walk” and it was interesting and informative. When we are in this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Grassland Bushman Lodge is located northeast of Ghanzi about 80Km. Because of our unique location, immense land size, and proper management, you are likely to see more Kalahari game at Grassland Safaris than any other safari outfitter.For a real awesome cultural experience with the San (Bushman) Grassland Bushman Lodge is a must! There is a San village very close to Grassland lodge with very warm friendly Bushmen that are eager to show guests their survival skills! The Lodge is also running a very good predator project, with lions, leopards and wild dogs.At Grassland Bushman Lodge you will be amazed by the comfortable chalets, dining facilities, and hospitable staff. Grassland has eight extremely well furnished chalets, each with their own en-suite bathrooms, beds, closets, and dresser amenities. Each facility has constant hot water and your laundry is done daily at no extra cost.Our meals are extraordinary, well prepared, and a far cry above most other safari outfits. We provide 3 meals a day, snacks, mid-day tea and dessert, cold drinks, wine, and a fully stocked bar for evening nightcapsAnother unique aspect of our camp is our large swimming pool. Guests thoroughly enjoy taking a soothing swim after a long day of game drives and cultural walks.Likewise, guests often enjoy sitting by the bricked fire pit and watch as hundreds of animals come in at dusk to feed by the large illuminated water pan a mere 50 yards away. ... more   less
