Kommandonek Lodge


Kommandonek Lodge About 15 kilometers from Parys, and one an half hours drive from Johannesburg International Airport, is Kommandonek Lodge.

This is a private wildlife sanctuary edged by the beautiful Vaal River traveling through a range of scenic mountains. These mountains were created by a meteor the size of Table Mountain which impacted the earth two billion years ago. The impact of the Meteor caused a huge crater that, over time, created the Vredefort Dome. The crater of approximately 380km includes Vredefort, Parys and Venterskroon. The outer margins of the Dome reach up to Johannesburg, Klerksdorp, and Welkom.

Kommandonek Game Reserve is situated in the center of this 80 kilometer wide meteor basin and supports a wild life conservancywhich includes 150 different types of bird species and game. Giraffe, zebra, oryx, eland, kudu, red hartebeest, water buck, impala, and numerous other smaller game species live here in harmony with nature.

Come and enjoy game viewing from an open game drive vehicle, or walking along the accredited hiking trails to experience incredible views and breathtaking scenery. Within this spectacular bushveld setting, Kommandonek provides a relaxed atmosphere for groups and families to enjoy birthday parties, school reunions, club functions, business conferences, team building exercises, tour groups, sport teams, weddings, birding, hiking, and year-end corporate functions.

The Boma and the River Venue are perfect venues for these self-catering small group functions or independent catered events.
