Obesa Lodge

Obesa Lodge in Graaff Reinet received an Afristay.com Certificate of Excellence Award.


Arriving at Obesa Lodge is as if you are at the end of a rainbow. ‘I like colours’ says the owner, Sonja Bouwer, with a smile. It is this simple philosophy that pervades the entire lodge. Each of Obesa’s accommodation units has been decorated according to various themes that have captured Sonja’s imagination and creativity. She clearly has lots of fun furnishing and painting units with names like Tutti Frutti, Spring Breeze, La Med, Sundowner, Scented Summer and City Chic. It is this sense of enjoyment that Sonja hopes will spread to her guests.

The fact that Sonja has a ‘value for money’ approach and belief that all South Africans must be able to afford good quality accommodation has resulted in Obesa Lodge receiving coverage (without prior knowledge) in The Lonely Planet Travel Guide, Business Link Magazine and in the SAA Travel Magazine.

We are very fond of our cats and they have become part of Obesa Lodge. Here is one of the main members of our feline welcoming committee.

Johnny Boy will welcome you to your room.
