About us


SA Wildlife Network - ELITEAskari Game Lodge & Spa is situated on the Plumari Africa Game Reserve in the Magaliesberg, just over an hour from Johannesburg or Pretoria and offers guests a memorable Big 5 wildlife experience within a malaria free environment.

Askari Lodge has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. A variety of stone and iron-age arte facts, items from the Boer War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the nearby Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the museum and guided bush walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings can be found.

Askari Game Lodge & Spa caters for romantic getaways, conferences, teambuilding initiatives, training courses and weddings in its 48 rooms, the main lodge and Day Visitors Centre. Nature lovers and birding enthusiasts will find the experience most rewarding, while stressed city dwellers will leave feeling rejuvenated and well-rested.

Lodges

  1. MAIN CAMP
  2. SELF-CATERING UNITS

The Askari Lodge interior manages to capture the romance and essence of ‘Africa meets Antique Dutch’ with décor pieces dating back to the 1800’s. Slipper baths, wash stands, luggage chests, antique Oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the luxury four-star surrounding, to emphasize the captivating history of the Magaliesburg area. Of the 48 suites, some have thatch roofs and wooden patios, while the newly added self-catering family units are tin-roofed with rough plaster and a distinct farmhouse look.
The Chalets and Suites all have unique configurations and cater for individuals, groups and families. Mini-bars are filled on request and complimentary tea/ coffee, safes, hairdryers and cooling fans are available for your comfort and enjoyment.

Self-catering Units
The eight new units consist of two Garden Cottages and six Garden Suites. All units overlook a sparkling pool and the Magalies mountain range in the distant. This brings the total of conference or leisure guests which Askari Lodge can accommodate at any given time to 48 singles or 96 guests, sharing. The tin-roofed, rough plaster units have a distinct farmhouse look. The dark grey exteriors blend effortlessly with the natural surrounds while spacious patios (stoeps) provide a respite from the warm day after a game drive. Braai facilities are included at each unit.

More Information


Plumari Africa Game Reserve is set within a pristine wilderness area of over 5000 hectares with natural African bushveld and an abundance of flora, fauna, birdlife and wildlife. Two game drives, each approximately 2 – 2,5 hours in duration, are scheduled daily. Elephant interaction includes an educational talk followed by a ‘touch and feed’ experience.
In contrast with the rich Boere and Afrikaner history depicted by the main farmhouse decor, the Day Visitors Center is abundant with African symbology, rich earthy colours and unique African décor focal points. The two contrasting décor themes pay homage to the history while highlighting the significant influence of the indigenous African tribes of the area.
