Send to Kindle

Galagos Lodge

WIN a 3 night stay for 2 couples at the elegant 4-star graded Galagos Lodge, in the scenic village of Kosmos and within close proximity to all the attractions of the Hartbeespoort Dam.

Set apart from others by its seclusion, intimacy and privacy, Galagos Lodge offers a cocoon of quality and grace, away from the madding crowds, where an overwhelming sense of peace consumes you. Designed for true bush elegance and combining personal service, warm hospitality and closeness to nature!

The Prize

Valued at R10 200, the prize includes:

  • Welcome drinks
  • Chilled champagne and a rose petal spread in your room on arrival
  • Luxurious accommodation for each couple in a Bali Suite with exquisite views across the Hartbeespoort Dam, for 3 consecutive mid-week nights
  • Scrumptious breakfasts daily
  • Sundowners on the deck and a 3 course candle lit dinner on the 3rd night
  • Chocolate on turndown

The interior is reminiscent of a gentleman’s manor. Warm and inviting with high ceilings and walls that are graced with photographs of wildlife, collected by the owners around the world. Kelims, Persians, enormous leather couches and armchairs big enough for two. A honesty bar for your favourite tipple, a day spa for pampering, a private pool for the sun-goddess and air-conditioned bedrooms to escape to … the small luxuries that make for a relaxing and invigorating experience.

Luxurious accommodation offers every convenience with up-market comforts in spacious suites and luxury rooms with king size mahogany beds, fluffy bath sheets and superior bath products. These small luxuries ensure a relaxing and invigorating experience and includes deluxe amenities such as the daily newspaper and evening turn-down service!

“Amazing … Relaxing … Heavenly!!!!! Thank you for an awesome stay, will be back soon” – Nicky Cowell, South Africa

    The Galago Lodge looks like a paradise retreat. It would be an amazing experience for us, as we always drive through hartbeespoort, but we have never been able to stay over in this beautiful area, and to experience all the beautiful sites & nearby attractions. It is our anniversary fast approaching and This would be an unbelieve way to spend our special weekend together.
