Qoo-oe means “Gathering Place” in the Gikwe Bushman language. This is exactly the purpose of Qoo-oe Lodge, situated centrally on Qabe Game Farm. Qoo-oe Lodge is an oasis for hunters after a long day in the African sun. Here, around the Boma campfire, hunting stories are narrated and friendships established. An extensive swimming pool with built-in bar provides a vista of the plains and grazing antelope, creating a relaxing atmosphere.
Accommodation is in traditional circular African dwellings (called “Rondawels”) with conical thatched roofs, each offering room service, well decorated and comfortably equipped. Our aim is to create a warm atmosphere and attend to individual needs. The units can accommodate up to 20 individuals in total or four separate families. Each sleeping unit has a bath, shower and either a double or single room with a panoramic view over a watering hole. Scrumptious meals are served in our comfortable dining area and we provide a fully stocked bar.
The Lodge itself has a large, cool swimming pool with a built in bar overlooking the plains of grazing antelope and provides relaxation for the nature lovers and hunters alike.
Climate and clothing:
Temperatures vary from 8 degrees Celsius (48F) in the mornings to 30 Celsius (90F) during midday for June, July and August. However September, October and November is our hot season and daytime temperatures can rise to between 30 and 35 Celsius (110F).
During the months of June, July and August a warm down jacket of fleece is recommended. The chilly wind on the back of a hunting vehicle must not be underestimated. Later in the season a light-hunting jacket might be required in the mornings. Care must be taken not to use safari clothes of a light colour. Grey, dark green or camo is recommended in the hunting field. Long sleeved shirts and trousers will protect the hunter from the sun. A cap, or floppy hat and sun screen is essential.
