The Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch in Mariental is an oasis in the midst of imposing parallel dunes that convey an atmosphere of freedom, pristine nature, warmth and safety. Three styles of chalets are provided and, although all have the same standard of luxury and finished quality, four chalets are constructed of wood and sit on stilts built on top of a Kalahari sand dune and have unsurpassed views to the Southwest. The main difference between the styles of chalets, besides the construction method, is the fact that the dune chalets have a bath and shower, while the strobhale chalets have only a shower. Meanwhile, Garden Court rooms are situated close to the reception area and have private gardens separated by wooden dropper-fences and each has en suite shower facilities, air-conditioning, fans, and a coffee/tea station. A cheetah named Pepper is the ranch mascot.
