About Iniklofie Lodge

We are situated on a dirt road, so one should be driving a vehicle suited to this terrain.

We have two rustic chalets, with an old farm feel, both having their own toilet, basin, Shower, fire place & electricity. For those who like to indulge in a hot bath, we offer a separate bathroom; it has an antique bath with a fire place.

You have the whole Lodge to yourself which consists of a "Hartebeeshuisie" restored & converted into a dining/bar area with "Stoep", a fully equipped kitchen with double fireplace.

Our establishment offers private, peaceful & exclusive accommodation with NO other guests to intrude on your privacy.

Iniklofie Lodge is situated in the Free State "Platteland", surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and in the distance, snow capped mountains.

This area holds evidence and traces of a bygone era, these, of the Boer War. This is a region of vast grassy plains and endless vistas, where the visitor can enjoy the open blue skies - star-studded at night - and the fresh unpolluted air.

The Gariep Dam is situated in the southernmost corner of the region and offers excellent recreational facilities and opportunities for anyone wishing to escape city life.

One should not be fooled by the tranquility of the Transgariep Region - underneath the atmospheric serenity lie incredible journeys and unforgettable opportunities waiting to be experienced.

These range from the sheer thrill of the hunt on any of the many game farms, the outstanding nature reserves offering their absorbing animal, plant and bird life, or just to enjoy the excellent facilities at the many holiday resorts in the area.

And then there are the journeys. The journeys leading you directly into the hearts of the people and country alike. Follow the preserved trails of Bushman antiquity and feel the magical presence of a nearly extinct people; so are the historic footsteps of other cultural groups in the region.

The charm of small town mythology brings one closer still to the rhythms of the earth, to a natural order, to a way of life perhaps intended for us all.

Spectacular Bird life, along the Orange River, several water-associated species occur. These include South African Shelduck, Yellowbilled Duck, and Pied Avocet. Caspian Tern and Greyheaded Gull are also found.

In the grassland areas, which at places is "invaded" by karoo shrub vegetation, typical species are Eastern Clapper Lark, Spikeheeled Lark, Redcapped Lark and Thickbilled Lark, while Doublebanded Courser, Sicklewinged Chat, Karoo Chat, Yellowbellied Eremomela and Rufouseared Warbler are common.

Other specials of this habitat are Pale Chanting Goshawk, Greywing Francolin, Orange River Francolin, Ludwig's Bustard, Eastern Longbilled Lark, Karoo Prinia, Buffy Pipit and Longbilled Pipit.

Besides exceptional hospitality by the local boers, we were taken aback by the beautiful scenes of nothingness, bush and the old stone lodgings. We look forward to visiting Iniklofie soon again. Paul Whittaker

We spent a long weekend at Iniklofie and it was awesome. Everything is so beautiful including the accommodation. Making fires in the big fireplace and playing pool, just relaxing in the peace and quiet was great for the soul. Well done Iniklofie! We will definitely be back.
