I actually haven't stayed in the Oxwagon Lodge, but I have been in touch with Mark Turner to ask questions on the area and the Om Die Dam race. Mark is clearly a very knowledgeable and passionate person on the Hartbeespoort area. I spoke to Oxwagon Lodge because it was obvious that they are a popular choice of accommodation to...

Hi there Han Solo, THANK YOU, and perhaps on your next intergalactic trip to Harties you might care to hovver for a while, or at least wave while passing-by. Oh! And we're fully-booked already with runners in this year's Om Die Dam Ultra-marathon! May the Force be with You, Mark Turner

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...

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 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.
