A Legacy of Adventure and Hospitality

Welcome to Tzamenkomst Lodge and Grit Events, where the spirit of adventure and the essence of hospitality are intertwined with the rich tapestry of the Great Karoo landscape. Situated on the banks of the majestic Orange River, Tzamenkomst Lodge is not just a destination – it’s the gateway to experiences that bind the soul to nature and adventure.

Acquired 3 years ago by the Adam’s family, they seek to share the magnificence of their family-run Karoo farm with like minded, energetic and adventurous souls. Named Tzamenkomst, the farm is steeped in the legacy of the renowned SA golfer, Gary Player. It was he who christened it with the name Tzamenkomst, a German word meaning “coming together.” The name reflects the unique confluence of the Oorlog Spruit and the Orange River, emblematic of the unity and connection the family seeks to foster through every event.

Our Philosophy

At Grit Events, we are driven by the belief in the power of unity – bringing people together to experience and overcome challenges, whether on bike trails, during runs, or amidst the tranquil beauty of nature. Our events are designed to do more than challenge the body; they aim to inspire the mind and enrich the spirit, nurturing a community bonded by the shared thrill of adventure.

Our Venue

Nestled in the heart of the Karoo, Tzamenkomst Lodge offers a variety of accommodations, from the historic River Lodge to the secluded Bird Hide and the communal Porcupine Ridge.
