15 September 2000 ... the day Bass Lodge became a reality.
Bass Lodge is truly a bank angler’s paradise. A little piece of heaven situated between Klersdorp and Wolmaranstad (about 40km either way). The three, well established dams are fountain fed with crystal clear water and stocked with Florida Largemouth Bass, Black Bass, Blue Kurper and Vlei Kurper (Tilapia) which forms a major part of the bass’s diet. The bass in these dams thrive and has grown to enormous sizes off over three kg.
Louis and Mariaan Ernst’s Bass Lodge is a shining and applaudable example of what a private enterprise can achieve to create a safe, quality, affordable and enjoyable facilities for the keen bass anglers. Together with their superb and forever friendly staff, they created this heavenly accommodation where you can forget the outside world exists.
Day anglers are permitted, but with such beautiful and neat accommodation, why the rush? Stay over with us in one of our four self catering Chalets, have a bonfire, braai and even cool off in the splash pool. Each Chalet facilitates four people and is fully equipped with their own bonfire and braai facilities with a splash pool each. Or the “drinking pool” as family members have named it. The feature of the building is most definitely the lapa/kitchen area. This is where it all happen in the evenings! Relaxation around a camp fire... All utensils are available in the kitchen including a small fridge, stove, kettle break-ware and cutlery. These Chalets are serviced on a daily basis so rest assured you can just relax and enjoy the time you spend with us.
Ablution blocks are immaculate and also serviced on a daily basis. Tiled Bathrooms and toilets and hot or cold water available.
They also offer clay pigeon shooting, all equipment provided. Same goes for the paintball. Game drives - bookings essential.
Once again, Louis and his wife Mariaan have gone to extremes to ensure your visit will be pleasant and unforgettable!
