Askari 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. Plumari Africa Game Reserve is set within a pristine wilderness area of over 5000 hectares. The main lodge, which is in fact the old Bodenstein family farmhouse, overlooks the Elephant Dam. Slipper baths, a coal stove, wash stands, luggage chests, antique Oregon cupboards and tables are subtly placed within the luxury four-star surroundings, to emphasize the captivating history of the Magaliesberg area. Askari Lodge has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. All chalets have thatch roofs and wooden patios and include king size (or twin) beds, mini-bars (on request), complimentary tea/ coffee, safes, hairdryers, cooling fans, en-suite with Victorian bath and shower.
