The French word 'bagatelle' translates as a trifle - something small, of little consequence, not very important. In the southern Kalahari, the word Bagatelle might be interpreted as a little miracle - a life-enhancing experience springing from the glowing red dunes of this arid, fiery desert. This is what has been achieved at Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch - a permanent, man-made reflection of the miracle that transforms the dry desert into a brief blaze of living colour after rainfall. Built atop and amid the huge red parallel Kalahari dunes, Bagatelle's luxury chalets and rooms stand defiant against the relentless sun and the searing wind. Inside they exude charm, tranquillity and creature comforts to pamper you during your stay and our gracious charming service will ensure you lack nothing, yet still experience an exhilarating thrill reminiscent of the traditional Safari Experience, the Spirit of Africa and The Final Frontier all in one.
