Lupela Lodge offers country farm-style accommodation in rustic cottages situated in a scenic valley in the Witteberg mountains on the R58 between Barkly East and Lady Grey. There are three dwellings on the farm that provide the accommodation, the 10-sleeper Lupela Cotage, the 2-Sleeper Silo Cottage and the 4-Sleeper lookout cottage, with the choice of self-catering or dinner, bed and breakfast.

Feel refreshed and energised.

Come and soak up the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful place. We offer space, silence and beauty.

Staying here means you can read in peace, walk in silence learning more about life and yourself. Picnic along the river and swim in crystal clear mountain pools.

The view on the farm is spectacular with deep valleys and sheer sandstone cliffs cut out of the mountains by the majestic Karnemelkspruit and its many tributaries. The seasons offer a favour for any intrepid traveller, from the snow capped mountains in the winter months to the hot and rainy summer months, this is a destination for any season.

Game on the property includes Blesbuck, Mountain Rheebuck, Vaal Rheebuck, Cape Grysbuck and a variety of smaller buck species.
