About Out of Africa Lodge - Out of Africa Guest Houses

Out of Africa Lodge is part of Out of Africa Guest Houses in the small Karoo town, Carnarvon.

Out of Africa offers warm hospitality and comfort in eight private self-catering units in a quiet area on the outskirts of the town, but within walking distance to the business area and restaurants.

Each unit has a well-equipped, self-catering kitchen with tea and coffee facilities as well as rusks and three cereals. Each unit has a fridge, a two-plate stove, a microwave, a frying pan, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, as well as braai equipment. The comfortable units are furnished with double and single beds and have an en-suite bathroom with a bath or shower each. All bedding and towels are supplied and in winter all beds are fitted with electric blankets and winter sheets, as well as two warm, thick blankets for those cold Karoo nights. Fans and wall heaters are also provided.

A television with the Hotel Premium Package DStv channels is available. The lodge also has a spacious lounge where groups like to gather and watch TV. Braai packs are available on request for those who want to enjoy organic Karoo lamb chops and sausage. Kindly note that the lodge is a non-smoking establishment, but smoking areas are provided outside.

Each unit has an ironing board and iron and insect repellent and emergency lamps are provided. Hairdryers are supplied on request and a laundry service is available for stays of three days or more. The entire complex is fenced, well lit and has lock-up parking for each unit.

Carnarvon also serves as the home of MeerKAT, a radio telescope under construction in the Northern Cape in the bid to host the Square Kilometer Array telescope against Australia. At the brick yard, travellers can watch the brick man baking bricks or visit the old Fort, the only one in the region, constructed on Carnarvon Koppie, which also offer beautiful views of the town.

                      Baie lekker gebly....stort water bietjie swak en lang mense soos ons moet dans ons hare te was, maar verder was ons oornagverblyf lekker. Lugreeling was 'n groot bederf. Ek stel net voor dat met bespreking duideliker ingelig word dat braaipakke en hout teen 'n bedrag beskikbaar is, want in so 'n klein dorpie is als op 'n naweek vroeg toe en baie min beskikbaar.

                      Baie dankie Marie vir jou hartlike ontvangs. Ons verblyf was baie aangenaam en dit was stil en rustig gedurende die tydjie daar. Die plek is lekker ruim, skoon en netjies en baie goed toegerus. Goeie waarde vir geld. Ons beveel dit met n geruste hart aan en ons sal beslis weer kom!Ferdi en Petro Erasmus

                      What a pleasant surprise. The stay was one of the best we ever had. The price per night makes it even better!Will go again, really good value for money.
