Kingfisher Lodge, which has been restored, consists of a charming series of tastefully decorated guest suites. The rooms and living areas boast an extraordinary collection of antiques.

The opulently appointed lounge is one of five living areas which include the sun porch, drawing room, enclosed patio with bar and the lapa area near the swimming pool.

Set in beautifully maintained, extensive gardens, against a backdrop of giant old Pepper trees, there are six luxury guest suites, each tastefully decorated in a distinctive style with antiques, brass beds woolen carpets and Persian rugs.

Graaff-Reinet, established in 1786, and the surrounding farmland epitomizes the Karoo. The town has retained much of its architectural heritage and it is no wonder that it is known as the Gem of the Karoo.

Many national monuments and historic buildings can be found in and around Graaff-Reinet - the third oldest town in South Africa.

The Valley of Desolation provides tremendous fascination and beauty with its balancing dolomite columns.
