In 2000 the Theron family decided to open a Guesthouse in Kuruman. First step was to purchase neighbouring property and the project of building this new accommodation in Kuruman started.
In 2001 Safari Travelodge opened for business! We started small, with only 5 rooms and a small breakfast hall. Over the next couple of years we expanded rapidly.
By the year 2013 Safari Travelodge has 20 en-suite rooms and a function & conference venue.
Safari Travelodge was one of the first guest houses in Kuruman.
Kuruman is a town with 13,057 inhabitants in Northern Cape province of South Africa, famous for its scenic beauty and the Eye of Kuruman, a geological feature bringing water from deep underground to the surface in the Kalahari Desert.
Kuruman was located along the border that bounds the Northern Cape from the North West Province and is still a local town for most communities surrounding the town, including those that live in the North West Province.
Kuruman is one of the more noted Peace Corps outposts in the northern regions of the country. From 2007 to 2009, it was home to former Peace Corps volunteer and published author and playwright Stefanie DeLeo.
Kuruman has relatively mild weather patterns compared to other Northern Cape towns, such as Upington and Springbok, and is surrounded by more vegetation as compared to the Upington and Springbok, which are surrounded by desertic environments.
