About El Dorado Lodge

Kuruman is the principle town of the Kalahari and is blessed with a permanent source of water. This is where you will find El Dorado Hotel.

Offering 73 rooms in different blocks, guest can choose between single, twin, double, family and suites. All rooms are equipped with TV and DStv as well as air-conditioning and tea and coffee facilities are also provided and replenished daily. A Solar Geyser system is installed for hot water in rooms and guests are asked to use hot water sparingly in order for everyone to have a hot shower or bath.

WI-FI Internet is available at a fee and coverage includes the conference facilities, restaurant and the front porch area. Parking is safe and guests can park right in front of their room. Security is provided and they patrol the grounds at night.



The Main Conference room can easily accommodate 200 people seated at tables. With the adjoining lapa, it is spacious and accessible and can be used for conferences, functions and weddings. The lapa is ideal for informal or social functions next to the pool and has a tarpaulin cover for more privacy and to keep out the cold.

The A la Carte Restaurant is air-conditioned and the specialty Kalahari T-bone, steak and oxtail takes centre stage on the menu. Wednesday nights guests can enjoy Tripe and all the chefs take pride in their mouth-watering dishes. The ladies bar is the ideal spot for relaxing with friends under the Kalahari sky.

Guests can visit the Eye, the Moffat Mission, the Wonderwerk Cave where the oldest archaeological findings of a man made fire in the world can be seen, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park or do paragliding. The staff at El Dorado will gladly help the arrangements.

El Dorado believes in a family friendly establishment and everyone is welcome.

                                      The Lodge is easy to find very accessable location. It was clean and welcoming. The staff is friendly and breakfast was good.

                                      We did not stay at your establishment due to misrepresentation on your and Safarinow's part. Not on the 19/12/2019 nor the 02/01/2020.We will be taking this mater further. We were under the impression that we booked a chalet on the ground floor as my wife is wheel chair bound. Your reception was very unaccommodating. I then informed him to cancel our booking.We found other accommodation more accommodating.

                                      Website is a bit misleading as we arrived thinking there was a swimmable pool (not a dirty green one), a bar and a restaurant. The set up is strange with 8 rooms sharing a communal lounge and kitchen. Not at all what we envisigioned. Thankgoodness Elsie moved us all into one communal unit as we were spread out across two units with total strangers.
