Overview

  • Sundowners on the Kalahari sand dune is perfect way to watch the sun sink into the distant dunes
  • Perfect introduction to a Kalahari ranch lifestyle
  • Scenic nature excursions and game drives

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch lies on the edge of the Kalahari in Southern Namibia and offers the perfect introduction to the Kalahari ranch lifestyle as its owners used to be cattle ranchers who have made the transition to conservation. Bagatelle Ranch is characterized by huge red sands dunes running parallel with the valleys in between the dunes commonly known as 'streets'.

A rambling old farmhouse was extensively upgraded and renovated to become the main Bagatelle lodge which effortlessly combines luxurious appointments with a homely Namibian ambience. There's a reception, lounge, dining room, convivial bar & wine cellar and library with conservation books and videos. Bagatelle Ranch looks out over a waterhole with the grassy Kalahari dunes beyond. An open air lapa for alfresco meals captures the atmosphere of an African safari.

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch offers four Dune Chalets, eight Savannah Chalets, six Garden rooms and two Honeymoon suites.

Activities

Activities include morning and afternoon nature drives (at additional cost), which allows you to view the Kalahari animal and bird life, but also the unique dune topography and vegetation. Sundowners on a red Kalahari sand dune, is the perfect way to watch the sun sink into the distant Namibian dunes. Back at Bagatelle Ranch, you can relax at the sparkling swimming pool or in a comfortable hammock, play a game of pool or spend some time on the viewing platform overlooking a natural waterhole with a book, binoculars and a drink at hand.

In association with the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Bagatelle are the custodians of some rehabilitated cheetah kept in an enclosure. These captive cheetahs are not able to be released into the wild, as they have been hand-reared and thus are unable to survive in the wild. However they can play an important role in broadening the cheetah gene pool by breeding in captivity in order that their offspring can be returned to the wild.
