Bagatelle - this French word refers to something small, of little consequence, not very important!
The lodge lies on the edge of the Southern Kalahari in the mixed tree and shrub Savanna. The ranch is charac-terised by huge red sands dunes running parallel, and in a northern-westerly to south-easterly direction.
The design and décor, materials and furnishings, gardens and natural settings, all combine to ensure our guests live their dream of an African Safari.
A rambling old farmhouse was extensively altered, upgraded and renovated to not only serve as a residence, but also as the main nerve center of the Lodge. An entrance hall leads to the reception, lounge, dining room, bar and cellar, library and office.
Although three styles of chalets are provided, all have the same standard of luxury and finished quality. Four chalets, constructed of wood and on stilts are built on top of a Kalahari sand dune, with unsurpassed views to the Southwest. The other six chalets are built in the valley between the dunes. These chalets are built of ‘hay bales’ with walls 600mm thick, the insulation and atmosphere are equally effective and tranquil.
