Nestling in a timeless valley is the Vingerklip Lodge on the 3000 ha Farm "Bertram" that is surrounded by a game fence helping us to protect and preserve the animals. Our 1600 ha private reserve has three waterholes in various locations around the lodge with the main waterhole being flood lit at night.
Various types of animals including Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Kudus, Oryx, Springbok, Impala, Warthogs,Baboons and Steenbok frequently visit the waterholes and are also often spotted when following the walking trails.
Eagles Nest Restaurant, high above the lodge on the Ugab Terraces, is reachable within 10 minutes walking. Guests have the option to exchange one of the dinners at the lodge for an unforgettable Eagles Nest experience where traditional African cuisine is served at no extra charge.
Please note that the Eagles Nest Restaurant is limited to approximately 20 guests and booking is essential. The walking the path up is not recommended for people with walking difficulties. The atmosphere and views from here are simply breathtaking!
Set on top of the Ugab Terraces is the heaven's gate luxury bungalow. With the well known Eagles Nest Restaurant nearby on the same terrace, a good night's sleep including dinner and breakfast can now all be enjoyed high above the surrounding landscape whilst taking in the soothing silence and breathtaking views. The bungalow was built with the idea of exclusivity and solitude, perfect for those who want to get away from it all.
Please note that this relaxing and exclusive accommodation is only accessible via a short mountain walkway and a 25m metal staircase. The walking the path up is not recommended for people with walking difficulties.
