Pete Safaris Game Lodge

Your first impression will be a magical sensation of Africa and the stunning views over the mountains, which seems to be endless, and with a vastness stretching as far as the eye can see.

Pete Safaris Game Lodge is an extraordinary place, situated in the heart of 30.000 acres of wilderness, consisting of hills, mountains, wide open plains and dense river beds. The lodge is located merely 1 hour and 20 minutes drive from Port Elizabeth Airport and offers peace and tranquillity, with magnificent landscape views and breathtaking sunsets, in an authentic and relaxed safari setting.

 

 

This is truly a unique place from which to explore the majestic landscape and spectacular wildlife, offering world class trophy hunting and a great variety of game species. In fact and particular, this is probably one of the best places in the world to hunt Kudu – also known as the Grey Ghost of Africa! In addition to the 30.000 acres of hunting area surrounding the lodge and should we need to hunt elsewhere, we have access to more than 300.000 acres of close by hunting concessions, saving you lots of time traveling far to different concessions. 

Our highly experienced professional hunters and trackers take great pleasure and pride in making your safari the most memorable one ever, and from the moment you arrive, you will undoubtedly, instantly feel relaxed and as one with nature. The rustic looks and surroundings, mixed with modern facilities, the friendly service and the traditional South African cuisine, have ensured the preservation of the authenticity and simplicity of the African safari, which ultimately provides an unforgettable and true african experience.

For families and companions who do not wish to participate in the hunt or relax at the lodge, we offer a great variety of day tours and excursions of all kinds – Study the many tours by clicking HERE. We can also arrange hikes or mountain climbing in the area surrounding the lodge – The possibilities are close to endless. 

 

 

Enjoy the sun and unwind in our beautiful Karoo garden, alongside the pool – The ideal place to relax while enjoying a cool drink with your friends or family. This pool is even specially equipped with its own little fireplace attached next to it, should you wish a little private sit-down, while parts of your family or friends still enjoys an afternoon swim. 

 

 

Stunning sunsets or game spotting can be enjoyed from the lookout platform, overlooking the beautiful plains and mountains. In the afternoons especially, you will experience lots of game sounds, including the Jackal calls and other. 

 

 

After a day full of excitement, guests can relax, refresh and recharge in the lounge, or in our lovely yellow-wood bar – From here you will have direct access to the large porch, where you will find the outdoor “braai” (barbecue place) and a round fire pit – Here we spend lots of time enjoying and cooking our meals. 

 

 

We also spend much time at the Boma – Boma is a Swahili word for an enclosure, and refers to the wall or fence that surrounds the area where people are dining (to protect them from any surprise visits from wildlife). It is characterized by a firepit inside and the thrill of being exposed to the elements of the bush at night, and is a time for storytelling and enjoying drinks with your hunting guides and fellow travellers. Dine under the African sky, and enjoy the smell of succulent meat roasting on the open fire, the twinkling of the glass lanterns and candles matching the magnificence of the starry heavens above – A truly magic place to gather! 

 

 

The camp meals are usually a mix of local and international cuisine. The daily menu depends on what is fresh and available on the day, but always with emphasis on game meat provided from the hunting, roasted on the fire – All of which provide guests with a wide range of culinary delights, including pristine South African wines.

 

 

Overall, Pete Safaris Game Lodge is private, spacious, stylish and well equipped, allowing you to enjoy your stay in great comfort. The modern conveniences include free Wi-Fi access all over the camp, a large lounge/dining room with a fireplace and TV-streaming, free bar, pool, tennis court and much more – The whole camp is elegantly designed, with emphasis on tranquillity, peace, comfort and none the least; the real “African Experience”.

The sights and sounds of the bush, completely surrounding the camp, provides a gentle backdrop to the beautiful en-suite safari suites, which include single, double, and deluxe rooms. All rooms are spacious and with en-suite bathrooms. 

 

If you are looking for an authentic african experience, with world class hunting, no hidden costs and affordable prices – you have reached your destination!
