Welcome to Donkieskraal


Only a two and a half hour drive from Cape Town, Donkieskraal offers a quick escape from the everyday rush and routine.

The Lodge is set in a total secure environment, in the beautiful Sandveld, surrounded by indigenous fynbos and breathtaking sandstone rock formations. Come and relax in one of our rock chalets, safari tents or even in your own tent in the camping area.

Eland, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Red Hartebeest, Impala, Bontebok, Gemsbok, Nyala, Springbok and Ostrich once roamed the Sandveld and has successfully been re-introduced into the game reserve. These animals now roam freely where their ancestors used to trot. Smaller game like the Bat Eared Fox, Caracall, Porcupine, Aardvark, Steenbok, Duikers, etc. is a common sight, especially during the evenings.
