Donkieskraal Game Lodge
Donkieskraal is located on the family farm Sandberg, the owners put aside approximately 2000 hectares of unspoilt fynbos, veld and mountain areas and transformed it into a private game reserve.
The very secluded Donkieskraal situated in the middle of the game reserve served as a hideaway for donkeys and horses during the Anglo Boer War (1899 - 1902). Later, in 1933 "Horse-sickness" broke out in the wetlands/vlei area that runs through the surrounding farms. A mere four kilometres away, at Donkieskraal, the animals were kept in isolation and escaped a certain death.
The abundance of bird life, including a breeding pair of Black Eagles, Peregrine Falcons and the occasional cry of a Fish Eagle is every bird lover's dream come true.
The Mountaintop gives you a bird's eye view of the Cedarberg Mountains, the sea and the surrounding farmland. Accessing the game reserve and mountaintop is possible in the luxury of you own 4x4 vehicle or on a guided game viewing trip.
