Overview

About the Lodge

Dolerite hills and wide, rolling koppieveld plains are some of the imagery which gives Mokala National Park its serene and comfortable character. A place of sand swept scenery and intermittent grasslands, it is also home to the charming Haak-en-Steek Rest Camp - a self serving camp site with rustic cottage and camping facilities, hearkening back to the park's true camping spirit.

Accommodation at Haak-en-Steek is provided either in the camp's campsite area, or a self catering rustic bungalow.

Guests staying in the bungalow have one double and two single-beds, a gas powered kitchen (stove, fridge-freezer etc), kitchen utensils and cutlery at their disposal, as well as access to ablutions and shower facilities.
There is no electricity available at the bungalow. 

Activities & Facilities

Reviews


Staff very friendly, and the cottage was very nice. A unique experience in a park where the protection of endangered species seems to be be a priority.

Our family enjoyed the isolation at H e S and could really recharge our batteries. The facilities were great and we especially enjoyed the boma and the animals at the waterhole. What an experience!!!
