Welcome to Flintbeck Lodge

Your Gateway 2 Africa

“Europe has the watch, but Africa has the time” – Ernest Hemingway



Originally built using only material from the farm, thatch roof cut from the bush, roof construction erected from Popular trees growing along the river, and walls built from baked clay dug out of the donga’s.  These rondawels along with the shed was the only construction on the farm when it was bought by our Grandparents Friedel & Lydia Schlotfeldt.  It housed the previous owners, our grandparents, our parents, us and now our guests.  The rondawels were reconstructed to their original form, to house our guests.  The thatch roof makes it cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.  These natural building materials make the guests at one with their natural surroundings.  The three bedrooms, old style living room and farm kitchen takes you back to living in Africa in the late 1800’s, a time of African legends.
