Lemoenfontein, South Africa



 



Tree: Tatham
Notes: Set in the vast expanse of the South African Great Karoo, this beautiful homestead/lodge dates back to 1850. Built slowly and soundly to the exacting standards and architectural style of the time, the building remains unchanged with characteristic high ceilings, original wooden floors and wide verandahs which offer guests a sweeping panoramic view of the Karoo landscape. Originally commissioned by a Victorian English Gentleman, Alhusen, the homestead was built as a hunting retreat. Once a year he would invite friends from both England and Scotland to travel with him to the homestead to hunt, relax and enjoy good company. [This may be *South* Lemoenfontein, 20 km to the south]
