A little bit of Paradise in the middle of the Dinokeng game reserve. Beautifully appointed self catering chalets, private and pristine. Catering for couples in 3 private chalets which have a view onto a private waterhole or families in 2, 6 sleeper chalets. The owners give special attention to detail and offer experiences to celebrate special events like anniversaries. Game drives and picnics can be booked.

I cannot fault this beautiful lodge at all! We spent the long weekend in December there, wanting to show our Romanian son-in-law the wilds of Africa, and the Old Spot rounded off a wonderful trip beautifully. We took a chance and arrived at the lodge earl (naughty!). Our hostess was extremally accommodating to us and even apologised as they were still sanitising the room! The chalet is beautiful and the amenities are perfect. We loved the lack of a television, making sure that we took advantage of the animal sounds the bush brings. Everything you need for self-catering is thought of, the beds are comfortable and the double shower and luxurious bath well appreciated. The birdlife around the chalets is vast and we even saw an African Wildcat one night. I would highly recommend that you book a game drive. We got to see 4 rhinos and baby warthog and learnt a lot from our friendly and informative guide. Highly recommended and will return.

Our unit was a tranquil green oasis. Sitting on the stoep with a view of the watering hole was a special experience. No sounds but the bird calls, the occasional breeze through the trees and the hauntingly beautiful call of the jackal at night

Just got back from a weekend at The Owl Spot. The accommodation is clean, kitchen and bathrooms well appointed. It is situated in a quiet and peaceful area of the reserve. The patio and braai area overlook the surrounding bushveld with passing game and a few interesting critters around the camp. The hosts were attentive to our needs and sorted out minor issues promptly.

We booked the place for two nights. It’s a really well laid out unit and very spacious. From steak knives to coffee plungers it’s all there. Huge bathroom with two showers and a really nice antique bath - don’t see this much anymore. The areas where I think there needs focus - the units will require aircon. It wasn’t particularly warm but it was just manageable in the unit at night. Mesh in front of the windows would be nice for mosquitos. Directions to get there was difficult to follow for us - can be simplified. But don’t be put off by these smaller things. It’s really lovely and relaxing and we had a great time.

Dinokeng Reserve and especially the Owl Spot Cottages are like Heaven on earth. We had a fantastic holiday. The accommodation was luxurious, the owner was most considerate and the surroundings were spectacular. We also saw a LOT of animals including some of the big 5.

This is truly a wonderful gem in the middle of the bush. A nature lover's dream!! There is an abundance of bird life at the chalets which will keep you occupied the whole day. The night sounds of a lion roaring nearby and jackals calling throughout the night makes you completely switch off from the busy city life. The game drive is an absolute must. The guide, Jacques, has a lot of expertise to share of the veld. Be sure to bring your camera with as you are almost guaranteed to find something spectacular. The unit is exceptionally clean and neat. One can really see the effort that goes into the readiness of the unit. Everything you need, is there. We will definitely return and recommend this place to everyone, young and old! Thank you Owl Spot!!
