About Chandelier Game Lodge & Ostrich Show Farm
The Klein Karoo is described as a botanical hotspot. It is the only place in the world where fynbos overlaps thicket and succulent vegetation, and the Swartberg Mountains are listed as part of the Cape Floral Kingdom World Heritage Site. Chandelier Game Lodge & Ostrich Show Farm is situated in the centre of this wonderful part of the world. If you are looking for an oasis to get away from it all, Chandelier is the place to be.
The Tented Chalets offer a unique bush experience where the quality is in the detail. They are perched on wooden decks in the bush and great care has been taken to ensure privacy and unique views. Each en-suite unit has a private observation deck from where guests can see various game species on their way to the waterhole. The lodge sleeps 16 people in eight private chalets equipped with white linen and velvet, as well as corner or spa baths and air-conditioners or fans. The stylish décor creates superb luxury under the canopy of the acacia trees. The showers, with only the stars as roofs, are something to experience. Guests are woken every morning with the beauty of birdsong.
Children are welcome and up to two small kids may share with their parents. Chandelier Game Ranch is an ideal venue to see the rare Klein Karoo succulents by day. The real treat comes after a leisurely field drive when the high lapa is reached. There the world lies at your feet and you can savour the sweeping vistas to the Swartberg Mountains. For the privileged visitor, the deep red setting sun seems to be the pinnacle of a day of peace and beauty. When darkness descends fully and one welcomes the quietness of the Karoo night, you experience something close to perfection with stars so numerous and so bright that you can almost touch them.
The Ferreira family has created something special in a malaria free environment for those who yearn to spend some quality time close to nature. Chandelier consists of 3500 hectares of succulent Karoo, river bushveld and Cape fynbos. The 122 km of off-road tracks make game viewing safaris an unforgettable experience, creating timeless memories. Chandelier hosts 23 antelope species and large numbers of game such as sable antelope, lechwe, waterbuck, bontebok and kudu are free-roaming. See the giraffes from the comfort of the Landrovers or come really close to the animals on either the quad bikes or on foot. If you are lucky, you may see the elusive black backed jackal or even catch a glimpse of the rare indigenous leopard.
Guests are offered first-hand experience on the world biggest bird sanctuary. Well trained, multi-languid guides take you on a tour through the working ostrich farm which dates back to 1885. Riding the ostrich is permitted for the brave, while affordable ostrich by-products manufactured on Chandelier are for sale in the curio shop. Delicious ostrich dishes are on offer at the restaurant which overlooks a waterhole where the animals come to quench their thirst.
Kindly note that check-in time is between 14:00 and 17:00 - please phone reception to make alternative arrangements for late arrivals . Private three-course dinners are served in the privacy and comfort of your own suite and are available on request, but must be booked before 14:00 on the day of your arrival.
