Askari is situated on a game reserve of over 5000 hectares of natural African bushveld, in the Magaliesberg. It offers guests a memorable Big 5 wildlife experience in a malaria free environment. It is about 1hour’s drive from Johannesburg. Askari Lodge has one of the largest private collections of ox wagons, carts and other animal drawn vehicles from the period 1800 to 1900. A variety of stone and iron-age arte facts, items from the Boer War and San Bushmen rock carvings tell the history of the area, which is also known for the nearby Battle of Nooitgedacht. Examples are available in the museum and guided bush walks take guests through areas where many stone carvings can be found. In contrast with the rich Boere and Afrikaner history depicted by the main farmhouse decor, the Day Visitors Center is abundant with African symbology, rich earthy colours and unique African décor focal points. The two contrasting décor themes pay homage to the history while highlighting the significant influence of the indigenous African tribes of the area.
