With just about a hundred years of heritage and history under the lodge`s belt, you can be certain that at the Transkaroo Country Lodge, it`s remarkably welcoming staff will do everything in their power to make your stay a unforgettable and relaxing one.
The Lodge was originally established as a corrugated iron structure that catered as a stopover for the diggers traveling to and from the diamond fields at Kimberley. The current building was erected in 1945 and it became a favourite vacation place, drawing mainly Jewish clientele from both the Reef and Cape Town.
The current owners gave the building a full facelift, and made quite extensive alterations. The decor was changed to an elegant and comfortable homely atmosphere.

The restaurant has high standard and was a positive surprise for us.
A very decent half-way stop. Very relaxed atmosphere. The room was very neat and clean and the staff friendly. Vehicles can be parked behind a locked gate adding peace of mind. Will definitely recommend this establishment and visit it again when I need a half-way stop when traveling on the same road.
Lovely ambience in the outside garden area. Very french decor and feel. Good service. Rod & Liz Douglas
Your friendly staff, and lovely goodies in the shop made our stay most pleasant.
