Great rustic lodge situated on the edge of Hartebeespoort Dam, gives the feeling that you are a good distance away from the hustle and bustle of the rat race. Definitely the best oxtail potjie I have ever had, with home made mini bread loaves fresh out the oven. Such a serene environment, with stunning panoramic views. This place is a... More

My husband and myself decided to spend the day at the Hartebeespoort Dam to show one of our overseas guests the area and talk about the history of the place. We then came for lunch to the Oxwagon Lodge. My husband was very impressed with the simplicity, charming, rustic ambience of the place. Everything was just perfect. We had a... More

We had a great time at the Oxwagon Lodge on Friday night celebrating a Birthday! The picnic was neatly set out for us and it was more than enough food. Would really like to recommend this as it is great value for money, neat & clean, friendly staff and a very nice breakfast! Thanks for a lovely evening!

We stopped here for Breakfast this morning after a recommendation from a friend and what a wonderful place. The staff are friendly and the food was great, not badly priced for a full breakfast either and great view. We will try stay there on our next trip to Hartbeespoort as the accommodation looks lovely.

Slept over for 1 night in January 2016 with my wife and kids and we really enjoyed the authentic character of the place and the rooms, as well as the fantastic setting.

We had a lovely meal out, the menu is simple and the food too, don't expect anything glamorous, however the setting and view of the hartbeespoort dam and the surrounding mountains is really fantastic. Lovely hidden gem.

Really enjoyed my visit to Oxwagon Lodge, was treated to a romantic picnic. The picnic area is very secluded with an excellent view over Hartbeespoort Dam, and very well set out, with blanket, glass holders etc. The "Romantic Picnic Basket" was of excellent quality. From the champagne to the snacks and desert. Cant wait to plan a sunset picnic with... More
