Magnificent lodge with all the features. Multiple small touches which show the management are thinking about the business. Will definitely visit again. One of the best designed entertainment areas we've seen.

Wagendrift Lodge is a destination rather than a stopover as it's not on the way to anywhere. It is 30 km from Laingsburg on the tar road and 63 km from the R62 on a dirt road. These are 'country kilometers' and much longer than the old mile. The scenery is spectacular especially coming through Seveweeks Poort pass; however I would not like to travel on that dirt road after rain but it is fine traveling from Laingsburg on the tar.
Anita is the perfect host and made us feel welcome after a long journey. We stayed in a rustic chalet. The farm is self catering and most guests do a barbecue. Wood is provided. Make sure you bring enough beer and wine and soft drink. The water comes from a borehole and 'townies' like myself need to acclimatize to it as it tastes different from our tap water. It's fine in hot tea, though. Don't think you can go to a restaurant for dinner as there are none within an hour's drive. Settle down, enjoy the fire and your meat and your beer and wine. Afterwards enjoy the silence and look up at the stars. It really is quiet; Anita told me one man came from London and the next day had to leave because it was too quiet and he could not sleep.
I don't think there is cellphone reception which IMHO is not a bad thing.
The scenery is lovely and it's pleasant to walk around in the cool of evening. An ideal resort for a romantic getaway but there were quite a few children there when we arrived, all enjoying the lovely pool.

We stayed at WagonDrift Lodge on our annual cycle tour - this year from Ceres , through the Karoo to George. We did a looooong stage from Sutherland to Laingsburg before arriving at WagonDrift Lodge. The lodge is very tastefully decorated and well appointed, and a place that the wife would be very comfortable to stay at. Clean and comfortable. We braaid for ourselves (self catering), but with help in the morning to clean the dishes. Very good nights sleep.

Room tip: To the best of my recollection, we stayed at Nguni Lodge on the river which was great..

We stayed one night during our motorcycle trip, we got the cottage instead of the lodge (which is for 3 booked rooms minimum). The lodge looks nicer, but the cottage was comfortable, quite small inside and basic, but the stoep was very nice. It is quiet there, nice location, make sure you stock up on food, water, etc. I would stop again, but probably with more people and at the lodge.

We stayed just for one night on a Karoo road trip, but could have easily stayed longer. The place is located on a goat farm and has amazing views. The chalet we stayed in, Nguni, had a fantastic outdoor bar, dining, lounge, cooking and braai area (although the sink would have been a challenge for a tall person). Two single beds and the fridge were located immediately inside and we had a separate double room. The place was very clean and comfortable. We went at the end of September so it wasn't too hot (although we still used the air con) however the owners said they have plans to renovate to make the chalets even more comfortable in summer. Despite being a distance from the NI, it is very easy to drive to and its remoteness adds to the experience. I definitely recommend this place – it has an amazing relaxed atmosphere and you can’t help but unwind.

Room tip: We stayed in Nguni - a double bedroom and two singles. The outdoor area had dining table, lounge, sink, braai, cooktop and amazing views!
