Situated in Frontier Country, Carnarvon Dale is an 1857 family farm on the banks of the Bushman’s River. This historic Settler farmhouse once provided lodgings for travellers, whose journeys had been halted by the flooded river, until it was safe for them to cross. In this same tradition of hospitality, we welcome you into our home and invite you to share in our heritage.
Once too, travellers recorded that our open plains were home to the mighty elephant and fearsome lion and that the valley bushveld teemed with game of many species. As you return to nature, so nature will return to you all that is good. We invite you to share in our magical conservation experience.
The bedrooms are in “The Top House” a restored early Edwardian cottage.
There is a choice of two en suite serviced bedrooms — a double bed bedroom and the other with two single beds.
There is a common private lounge leading on to a covered veranda overlooking the pool area.
The accommodation meets TGCSA three star grading requirements.
The lodge is ideal for a group or family of four.
