Zuikerkop Country Game Lodge
Clocolan, Eastern Free State - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:The name Zuikerkop is exotic enough just to match the eco-terrestrial settings of its Game Lodge. Tucked between Lady Brand and Ficksburg in the Free State. Zuikerkop Game Lodge is situated a few minutes from Clocolan; it is no mystery that this Clocolan accommodation conjures feelings of warmth, hospitality and a rich history of farming.
The history of Clocolan
A small farming community established in the early 19'00s, well-known for its wheat, cattle and maize. Clocolan hosts an abundance of wild life and nature's greats such as deer, giraffes and buck. For any Game Reserve, this culture of farming, herding and nature, Clocolan forms the perfect back drop.
What Zuikerkop Country Game Lodge has to offer
When it comes to Games Reserves in the Free State near Cocolan then Zuikerkop Country Game Lodge should take the crown, not only for its exquisite conference facilities that are the dÃ©colletage of the whole lodge but also its unscathed Clocolan campsites that come complete with ablution facilities. It should also be exalted for the opulence that is displayed in their Honey moon and Executive suites, which are fully furnished and scream class and sophistication.
It would be against Clocolan accommodation protocol to offer luxury suites without offering a more humble variety of accommodation. Zuikerkop Country Game Lodge offers the more money-savvy tourist the choice of quaint 2-sleeper rondavels each with en-suite bathroom. These rondavels are scattered gently along the lodge and house up to 58 guests all together. As well as backpacker accommodation that houses more than 30 people. And a slight down grade from the luxury Honeymoon suites would be the 18 luxury 2-sleepy chalets with scenic views that will leave you breathless.
Who knew that a place known for farming such as Cocolan would be associated with luxury, class and hospitality while catering to everyone from the school camp to the high end business woman who has come to unwind after a long week at work? Whether it's camping, back packing or visiting a Game Reserve in the Free State. It's like Mother Nature serving you its best on a silver platter with this Clocolan accommodation.
