The name Dreghorn was given to this specific farm when Scottish land surveyor Jackson, measured out farms in this area during the late 1800’s and the farm was named after a small town in Scotland. The farms were sold to prospective farmers by the Government of the Union of South Africa, shortly after the First World War.
Today, Dreghorn is being transformed into a lodge that blends in with the natural setting and does not neglect any bush luxury. It provides accommodation for 29 people, in the form of eight comfortably decorated Cabins with en-suite bathrooms. Each room comes with an air-conditioner and a beautiful Kalahari view. Visitors can take part in activities, such as 4x4 trails and hunting, birding or game-watching.
They can also enjoy the large water cooled outdoor boma ( Lion’s Den ) with a huge fire place, catering area and outdoor bar. Traditional foods can be prepared and served here under the African sky on request. Dreghorn also has a restaurant and a fully-licensed bar on its premises.
