Welcome to De Ark Guest House
De Ark Guest House in Lydenburg offers a typical colonial ”Out of Africa” experience in the historic town of Lydenburg in Mpumalanga province, South Africa, a mere 90 minutes from the ultimate big 5 safari game reserve, the Kruger National Park.
This affordable luxury guesthouse in the centre of Lydenburg offers a selection self-catering and bed & breakfast accommodation, each boasting a private entrance, an en-suite shower/bath and secure parking. All this in a stylishly decorated room with all the modern comforts you would expect when choosing accommodation.
The legendary hospitality and years of experience of owner Francis Le Roux and her small, well-trained staff are just what you would expect when considering a wedding, conference, a comfortable business stay or affordable accommodation for a short stay on your way to the Kruger National Park.
The intimate, opulently decorated English Fickle Fox Bar has a friendly, companion-like atmosphere and has proven to be a popular before-dinner meeting place. Holiday and business guests love to network over a glass of good whisky or South African wine. In the manicured, scented rose garden, which seems to be permanently in bloom, hides a beautiful small gazebo which offers privacy for special sweet talk lovers secrets.
The historic building was the first parsonage of the Dutch Reformed Church built by the Voortrekkers 150 years ago. Visitors can enjoy the rich history of the building and relive times of old when royalty and noblemen of the court dined together in front of the crackling fire.
