About Witkrans Lodge
Witkrans Lodge is situated on a working sheep farm, 12 km from Middelburg in the tranquil Karoo. There is one cottage with two en-suite bedrooms, which is fully equipped. There are garages as well as braai facilities with wood and braai packs available. The cottage is pet- and wheelchair friendly.
Middelburg lies in the middle of the Karoo, surrounded by mountains in an area recognized for its prolific and naturally occurring herbal plant life. Just outside Middelburg lies the Karoo National Park, probably one of the main attractions to this part of the world and a wonderful example of how life has adapted to survive harsh weather conditions.
Surrounded by the Nuweveld Mountains, the park is home to black rhino and buffalo, the Cape mountain zebra and over 20 breeding pairs of black eagle. There are some wonderful examples of succulent plants and small reptiles as well, and a bird hide that is worth an early morning and evening visit. The skies are filled with stars at night and Middelburg has surrounding waterfalls and streams that provide the town with its water.
