Morning Scenic Drive
As the red dunes and their inhabitants awake and come to life again, discover their magic, their amazing diversity of animal and bird life, and learn about their unique topography and vegetation.

Cheetah Viewing / Feeding
Come and watch the cheetahs either early in the morning or at evening feeding time - their favourite time of the day!  The cheetahs at Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch live with us under the auspices of the Cheetah Conservation Fund*.

Bushman Village Walk
A relaxing walk with local San Bushmen who will share with guests some of the secrets of their ancient practices and survival skills, handed down from their forefathers.  At their traditional bushman village, a typical family will demonstrate aspects of a centuries old way-of-life, including how they stored water in ostrich eggs, used plants for medicinal use, set traps and made ostrich and bead jewellery, etc.  A truly unforgettable experience - not to be missed.

Horseback Safari
Bagatelle has a variety of horses suitable for children, beginners, intermediate and advanced riders.  Guests can experience the silence of the Kalahari, broken only by the sounds of nature, while riding our well-trained quarter horses (cowboy horses) and accompanied by a guide.  After the exhilaration of the ride through the blazing red dunes, a cool drink served in an ostrich egg-shell makes a welcome refreshment, before heading back to the ranch.

Combination Drive
Our 'Combi-Drive' provides the essential elements of three popular activities: Cheetah Viewing or Feeding, a Nature Drive and the traditional Sundowner, taken on top of a dune, as the sun's rays fade away from the dunes.

Sundowner Drive
There can be no better way to end the daylight hours than by watching the dying rays of the sun as they re-draw the landscape in ever-changing colours, especially with a cool sundowner in your hand.

Observatory Star-Gazing
View the spectacular Southern Hemisphere Sky from the Bagatelle Observatory using a state-of-the-art computerized telescope. Planets, brilliant star clusters, galaxies and the Moon will all be revealed in amazing clarity and detail by our Resident Astronomer.

Night Game Drive
See another aspect of the Kalahari after night has fallen, and spot an entirely different range of animals and creatures as they roam their territories, hunting for prey or carrying out other nightly activities.  After darkness falls, so does the temperature, so a warming night-cap will be very welcome before settling down in your bed for the night to dream of the day's amazing sights and experiences.

*Cheetah Conservation Fund
Because of their individual histories, it is impossible for any of these captive animals ever to be released and to survive in the wild, so we care for them in order to guarantee them the best possible quality of life.  Their enclosures and facilities have been built to exceed all current regulations set by the CCF and the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
