About Content Lodge
Content Lodge is a nature-lover’s delight, on 50-hectares of mixed-bushveld with a large variety of indigenous trees and flora. Either sit in one of the many garden 'corners' and be entertained by the numerous birds frolicking in the garden or take a stroll and spot them in the veld.
The farm is a part of a larger game farm. There is giraffe, kudu, zebra, blesbok, impala, wildebeest, gemsbok and red harteebees, altogether 15 species, on the property and there are many walks through the game area. There are also splendid views of the Magaliesberg Mountain and the Hekpoort Valley itself from the property.
Content offers charming rooms and facilities that are tastefully outfitted to ensure your stay is both comfortable and memorable. The lodge is let as a self-catering facility, with everything that you may need being provided. There is a plunge pool where you can relax on the deck and the children can romp away, and there is also a bush braai where you can end your day staring at the stars and philosophising about it all. Laze your days away on the large stoep catching up on your reading to the accompaniment of birdsong. At night the stoep transforms into your candle light dining-room in the bush.
During the day the bird life is a soothing accompaniment of various birdcalls, while later jackal calls and nightjars are heard far off with twilight descending. There is lots of space to hike with hikes ranging from easy walks to a more serious three kilometre long hike. The farm lies about one hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria, and approximately forty minutes from Lanseria International Airport.
A minimum stay period of two nights applies.
