Aloegrove Safari Lodge

Game Lodge in the Otjiwarongo Area

Aloegrove Safari Lodge specialize in hosting small private groups. The main emphasis here is on undivided personal attention and the owners and management pride themselves in putting their guests first. The main wildlife attraction here is their daily lion, cheetah and leopard feeding.

The lodge is set in the middle of a private game park on 8,300ha of farmland (36kms north-east of Otjiwarongo). Nearly half has been allocated for the lodge and game, with the remaining hectares being used for cattle farming. Sited some 1,630m above sea level, guests can expect to experience somwaht cooler temperatures in the hot summer months. The elevation and 360° view over the vast savannah and the Waterberg Plateau, affords magnificent views.

The name Aloegrove, originates from the abundant 'Aloe literalis' growing in the area, which belongs to the tree family Aloe, easily identified by it's magnificent burnt-orange flowers.

At the end of a hard day's drive or activities, the sparkling pool is the place to go for a well-earned dip, sunbathe or cool drink. Watching the spectacular sunrise or set here, is also well worth the effort. Aloegrove Safari Lodge's cuisine also caters for vegetarians and vegans, and their excellent dining facilities include an open fireplace, and an outdoor braai area, ideal venues for breakfast and dinner. (Lunch must be pre-booked.) To complement the dining experience, the lodge offers several excellent South African wines.

Accommodation is bungalows. Some of them can be used for self-catering. The views of the Waterberg Plateau, Leopard’s camp and one of the waterholes, are truly spectacular from here.

  • Bungalows: there are 3 bungalows- bathroom with shower and private balcony. They are suitable for up to 2 adults and 1 child - 1 double bed and1 single bed. Small fridge and kettle with beverages.
  • Self-catering bungalows: these 3 bungalows each with it's own bathroom with bath and shower. Suitable for those who wish to self-cater or stay longer periods and like to have something in-between meals. Fully equipped kitchen with indoor braai (BBQ). They have 2 double beds in each unit for 2 adults and 2 children. The facilities are similar to the other bungalows.

A great favourite at Aloe Grove Safari Lodge, is the scheduled lion, leopard and cheetah feeding. It is the ideal moment to see these magnificent beasts at close range, and is a marvelous opportunity to get the camera's out.

Guests can also join the lodge's ranger on a 4x4 morning or afternoon game drive, viewing several species such as eland, kudu, oryx, giraffe, Mountain Zebra, hartebeest, springbok, impala, steenbuck, duiker, Damara Dik-Dik, black and blue wildebeest, waterbuck, and warthog.

Bird watching can be done from the comfort of the bungalow, with the view onto the waterhole, providing ample occasions for ornithologists. The fitter and more energetic, might prefer to venture out on a guided hiking trail, in and around the lodge.
