In 2001, Thuru Lodge was developed, a visualized Kalahari Dream, a place where luxury, serenity and adrenaline came together. Thuru Lodge is situated in the gateway of the Green Kalahari close to the town called Groblershoop. With a rainfall of only 200mm per annum Thuru Lodge is truly an oasis in the desert.
Thuru Lodge’s unique variety of vegetation types, which is broadly classified into Nama Karoo, Kalahari and Karoo mountain vegetation, runs for 45 000 acres and therefore a wide variety of fauna and flora can seen and experienced.
In 2010, Hennie Gous and his family bought the lodge and since then his daughter Mardoret and her husband Braam started managing the lodge. Thuru Lodge is part of a family business and we strive to give all our guests the best possible experience, arriving as clients but leaving as friends.
Thuru Lodge is near the Orange River and also not far from the local wine cellar (Orange River Wine Cellar).
