Kgalagadi Lifestyle Lodge: where rugged terrain and luxury meet

Kgalagadi Lifestyle Lodge

Only five kilometres from the entrance to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Kgalagadi Lifestyle Lodge is a family owned and operated luxury lodge which takes its inspiration from the natural surroundings.

Owners, S.J. Koortzen and his wife Denise, and their dedicated team are passionate about hospitality, and have transformed the Lodge into a full-service destination.   

The Lodge boasts an all-inclusive experience for both long and short term stays and offers luxury accommodation, a restaurant, a shop, a swimming pool,  an airstrip and vehicle hire. Self-drive game drives on premises, hiking trails.    

Self-Catering Accommodation in the Kgalagadi

The Lodge offers thirty-two modern, affordable, clean, fresh, individually decorated and strategically placed chalets.  The chalets can sleep from two to six guests, and include family, luxury, standard and business chalets. A New Luxury villa also now available for an even more luxurious stay.

Each unit features an ensuite bathroom with a shower, a king or queen size bed and singles, with quality duvets and premium linen.  The living area is open plan with air conditioning and DSTV, and a dining area on the stoep with braai facilities.

In addition, there are fourteen 4-star camp sites.  Each camp site has a power socket, its own ablution block and washing up area, a small fire pit and a shade net veranda.

Black Mane Restaurant and Grill

The restaurant, which can seat up to fifty people, forms part of the Lodge, and offers a truly South African dining experience.  

Meat is the base of every dish and includes the finest quality meat, including game.  All food at the Grill is locally sourced and served with style, flair and skill.

The menu includes burgers, wood fired pizzas, salads, steaks, artisanal sandwiches and desserts.

There is also a grocery shop on site offering on the go meals for travellers on their way through the Kalahari.

Local beers and spirits on tap and the restaurant boasts an impressive wine list at their newly launched wine shop.

Vehicle Hire

The Lodge has an airstrip, and offers 4×4 vehicle hire for those who wish to explore the red sand dunes, dry riverbeds and countless 4×4 trails. The Kalahari terrain presents harsh conditions which are not suitable for regular vehicles.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
