About Pitse Game Lodge

itse Lodge is a tribute to Paul Fentener Van Vlissingen and the conservation and community involvement legacy.  

Pitse Lodge is a unique, “exclusive use lodge” stitched to an ancient rocky ridge and secluded in the far south of Welgevonden Game Reserve. Pitse overlooks a swathe of wide-open grassy plains, rich with bird life in the lush green of summer, and regularly visited by the big five and prolific plains game.

At Pitse, safaris are conducted at your convenience, and fireside, candlelit dinners are enjoyed under a canopy of stars, where fine pan-African cuisine and excellent South African wines are shared.

Pitse provides a quiet home from home and sheer luxury living in the wilderness!

Accommodation:

Stylish and flamboyantly decorated, the accommodation includes five thatch and stone luxury chalets, two of which are connected and thus ideal for families. The main lodge consists of a lounge, library, dining area and deck overlooking the open plains, whilst candlelit dinners in the boma are a feast of delicious food and excellent South African wines. All meals are prepared by our chef at the lodge. The freshest produce is used and we make use of organic herbs and vegetables from our own garden, wherever possible. Pitse Lodge can accommodate a total of 10 people.

The exclusivity also allows for game drive activities to be scheduled around your family.

The lodge has a well stocked library complete with video and CD player facilities. There is a swimming pool and an outside boma for dining. Equipment for small conferences can be arranged on request. Fax and telephone facilities are available.

Dining:

The inside dining area is available for those cooler winter nights, where the large wooden fire roars while the chandelier above the yellow wooden dining table illuminates the area with the romantic glow of candles.

Our outside dining area is on the main deck and is by far one of the favourite dining areas in the lodge. Meals on this deck can be enjoyed whilst observing the passing show provided by nature, with any number of animals being present on the plains or coming for a drink in one of the lodges’ water features. As night falls the darkness comes alive with the sounds of nature as the nocturnal animals, birds and frogs add their calls to the night.

Activities:

Activities are entirely dependent on guests’ wishes. Game drives at any time of the day, picnics and expeditions to the lodge’s breeding facility for roan, sable antelope and buffalo are all on the agenda. The big five are much in evidence and the surrounding area is renowned for white rhino that graze nearby and unusual bird life. In all, this spectacular lodge is the epitome of elegant living in the wilderness.

Lion, elephant, white rhino, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, eland, kudu and many other species of game occur in the area. There are occasional sightings of leopard and cheetah. Welgevonden has an extensive bird and plant species list.
