Owl Spot ... A little piece of paradise in the heart of Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve only 45km north of Pretoria.

We want you to experience the night sounds of the bush, listening to the campfire crackle while a hyena call pierces the silence in the distance. We want you to experience the spike of adrenaline as you look a lion in the eye for the first time and feel the ground beneath your feet as you gaze up at the night sky.

Come and explore the mystery of Owl Spot ... We want to share our idea of paradise with you!

In Room Facilities:

At Owl Spot you will find two thatched cottages surrounded by beautiful bushveld. The two cottages provide luxurious accommodation for up to four people per cottage. Each cottage is fully equipped for self – catering.

Area Information:

There is a place in Africa where wild animals still roam freely. Where the great tuskers still tramp their ancient pathways through indigenous forest and tall yellow grass. This is Dinokeng Game Reserve, a 22 500 hectare unspoiled wilderness in northern Gauteng.

The rest of the Big Five also find their home here – lion, leopard, black and white rhino, buffalo, more than 360 bird species and myriad other animals and plants.

Property Facilities:

* Crisp bedding and toweling
* Coffee and tea
* Bathrooms with a beautiful bath tub and a double shower
* Leather couches in the main living area
* A huge patio area where outdoor furniture is provided to enjoy that all relaxing "bushveld braai".

Attractions:

Enjoy an African Safari like never before in an open game viewing vehicle. Our enthusiastic Field Guide will point out the footprint of a stalking leopard or rhino and calf and maybe the hideout of a baboon spider.

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Owl Spot in the Grass Owl chalet. The unit was clean, spacious and well equipped. The unit also has a nice view of a small watering hole at which we saw quite a few animals. The host was very accommodating and friendly. We would definitely recommend Owl Spot for a relaxing getaway in nature!

The cottages are so amazing and luxurious with everything you need for self catering. Its a real natural experience, peace and quiet, all you hear is nature and its beautiful. The bathroom is out of this world, really enjoyed my stay.

What a little jewel in Dinokeng. The peace and quiet of the bush was amazing. Our boma was spotless and very comfortable. A huge thank you to Jacque and Marizanne for the excellent service and for making our stay unforgetable. The Game drive was amazing and Aaron were good at finding and getting us to sightings.

Fantastic location and peaceful accommodation. Beautiful sounds of the bosveld with the lights of Pretoria in the distance feeling a million miles away. We stayed in middle of summer so loft room for Pearl Spotted Owl was a bit warm for the kids but nothing a fan wouldn’t fix. Young black backed jackal visited every night hoping for a free snack, very friendly and cool to see so close. Night game drive by Jacques was amazing, so knowledgeable with a sharp eye and saw hippos, lions, owls and plenty of boks and even a small genet which was awesome and very unique to see. Jacques and Marizanne were very friendly and helpful and even sent out wildlife spottings throughout the park via WhatsApp for those that wish to self game drive. Trip to remember

Really great place for a break. Well equiped and well appointed - has everything one needs. Bush feel very strong but no direct view of the open grassland. Host and game drive ranger very helpful and knowledgeable. A 'will return' option!

Owl Spot verblyf was uitstekend! Marzanne en Jaques is lieflike, vriendelike en behulpsame mense. Baie dankie vir vriendelike ontvangs met aankoms. Jaques, baie dankie vir mees interessante wildrit, ons dit baie geniet ten spyte v d koue! Die chalet is baie goed toegerus en uiters netjies. Het heerlik geslaap en gerus. Lafenis vir die siel.

The estate consists of 2 superbly appointed spacious good value cottages for up to 4 people. Old fashioned hospitality by owners made sure we felt welcome.
Spent 2 great surreal nights in a good bushveld experience, so close to Pretoria, with all necessary amenities well placed and available. Evening game drive was superb with our knowledgeable and interesting hostess, who made sure our drive took in the chilled part Dinokeng.

We heard hunting gunshots while we stayed at Hatneesfontein Guest Farm. Ruined it for us. Will not go back there for that reason.

Mongane lodge's game drive was great. Good sightings. We liked the Safari mall where we could purchase some needed stuff. We found the map of the reserve a bit confusing, but overall we really enjoyed the self drive route. There are also a lot of lodges that offers game drives. Some are also open to people who are doing the self drive route for refreshments.
