Plato Lodge, Augrabies

Plato Lodge is the perfect breakaway destination as it is enroute to the annual Namaqualand flower splendour and almost on the doorstep of the Augrabies Falls National Park. The lodge is situated 50km west of the roaring Augrabies Falls in a region renowned for its unspoilt scenery of the neighbouring Bushmanland and Richtersveld, as well as the lifegiving water of the Orange River that meanders through the arid landscape.

Diversity and contrasts are characteristic of this unique area: moonscape vistas, quiver trees, as opposed to emerald vineyards. The deafening silence of this semi-arid region is unequalled. Visitors will be greeted by azure skies at day time and can bed down at the end of the day under a starstudded night nightscape.

Plato Lodge comprises a 4700 ha farming area that abounds with wildlife, leopards in their natural habitat, as well as antelope such as eland, kudu, gemsbok(oryx), springbok and klipspringer. Birdwatchers will be treated by the presence of raptors such as African fish eagle and Verreaux’s eagle, and occasional visits by a covey of double banded sandgrouse.
