Schrikkloof Private Nature Reserve & Resort
The Lions Foundation is located in the magnificent Schrikkloof Nature Reserve, a 700ha reserve in the Waterberg. Guests are welcome to stay in our beautiful, African-style resort. Combine your stay with a visit to The Lions Foundation!

Book accommodation

Schrikkloof’s accommodation consists of ten fully serviced thatched suites with bathrooms en-suite. Six of these suites have outdoor showers in addition to the bathrooms. All suites have private decks overlooking a ravine of unspoilt nature.

A full bar, lounge and dining area opening up onto a viewing deck are the focal point of social activities. At night, you can enjoy pre-dinner drinks and snacks around an open fire in a boma with a view.

Please note: Due to the slopes on which chalets were built, stairs between different floor levels may not make the accommodation suitable for physically handicapped persons.

The Induna room offers the ideal setting for meetings (boardroom style) or seminars (classroom style) with whiteboards, overhead projector, screens, TV and VCR.

This conference room offers comfortable seating for up to 24 delegates with top quality facilities and an atmosphere to stimulate any conference activity. In addition, the Wine Cellar can seat up to 10 delegates in air-conditioned comfort and privacy. The lodge area also offers comfortable seating areas for four break-away groups.

If you’d like to book a conference stay, please contact us.

Schrikkloof is part of a privately owned game farm in the southern range of the Waterberg. The farm covers 1200 hectares of natural landscape and lies in the centre of over 10,000 hectares of bushveld ranches. The owners have embarked on a programme, based on ecological study, to breed a number of indigenous game species.

Right now there are over 22 species of game already roaming the farm including Buffalo, Zebra and Giraffe. Schrikkloof is also home to a host of bird species, which is bound to intrigue the avid bird watcher. Free-roaming wildlife is abundant; sightings of porcupines, aardwolf, aardvark, bush babies and mongoose are common and even the elusive leopards have their territory in the area.
