Appelsfontein Game Lodge is a self catering, tented safari camp built with canvas tents.

Two tents are available, each sleeping 2 people. Each tent has its own private lookout deck catching the morning sunrise, with an uninterrupted view of the veld.

The entire camp was built to be as eco-friendly as possible with as little impact to the natural surrounding as possible.

The lapa/kitchen area is located between the tents. It has both an inside and outside braai area, a gas- operated fridge and wash-up area.

The lapa is fully furbished with utensils, crockery and cutlery. Including a gas stove.

It has an open floor plan and very few walls as to let you really immerse yourself in nature. Also kept in mind are the cold winter evenings, thus canvas blinds are installed to close the lapa, ensuring warmth and comfort.

Bathroom facilities include a spacious shower with a gas-operated geyser. An eco-friendly toilet was installed as to minimise water usage and installation of plumbing.
