About Emthanjeni Lodge
Welcome to Emthanjeni Lodge
Situated on a peaceful small holding in De Aar, Emthanjeni means "the vein" and refers to underground water. Escape from city noise and experience a calm atmosphere with personal attention on a Karoo landscape that was converted into a small oasis. Breathe clean air and admire the Milky Way at night and in summer, relax at the pool and barbecue area within the spacious garden.
We offer 18 well-equipped rooms each with a private entrance, separate from the house, ensuring total privacy. Accommodation comprises double rooms as well as self-catering units, and features include tea and coffee-making facilities, cutlery and crockery, linen and towels, fridges, TV with local channels, air-conditioning, electric blankets, and daily room service.
Breakfast is served in the large dining area, which can also be used as a conference venue, and lunches and home-cooked dinners can be arranged upon request. Safe undercover parking is also provided for guests' convenience.
