A great private reserve with a good variety of game. Excellent accommodation and facilities. Good value and friendly staff. Very popular. Full on our visit. One night would be ok but two is the better option,I believe. Recommended

Very memorable stay!”

My partner and I spent one night at the Garden Route Game Lodge and had a fantastic time! The game drives were great and well organised. We really enjoyed the food from the buffet in the evening and for breakfast. Also the facilities were very clean. The best thing in our opinion was the location. Such a great view! If we would change anything, we would stay a bit longer so that we could enjoy the facilities even more and do a night safari which some other guests recommended.

NOT WORTH THE PRICE!”

Overpriced stay! Before booking this place, I had sent an email and was being assured that I will be able to see all the big 5 including Giraffes as it was just a small reserve. To my disappointment, no Giraffes was in sight at all when I was there and I was told then that the Giraffes has been moved to another location. I feel cheated! Nobody even have the courtesy to inform me via email that the Giraffes are no longer available in this safari. The 2x guided safari was the most boring ever, I fell asleep on the morning game drive because the guide was just driving back to the same location as per previous day and we spot the same animals xcept for two pathetic elephants. The food was another disappointment, just cheap vegetarian and lack of options! You even need to pay for your own drinks if you decide to get anything like hot chocolate! (which was very BASIC as other accommodations are providing this for free)

Excellent stay”

We were a party of four and from arrival to departure we had an excellent time. The night and morning safaris were excellent, our tour guide for the safaris was Hannes. Hannes was very knowledgeable with regards to the animals and wildlife which made it very exciting. Thank you Hannes. The breakfast and dinner was also excellent with a variety to choose from. We as South Africans have been to numerous safaris outside of South Africa and this was by far the best experience. This really makes me grateful to be part of a beautiful country.

The rooms was nicely decorated and it was comfortable. The complimentary buffet meals were fantastic. Our toilet would flood when we were showering though. That's the only downside of our stay. We only stayed a night so that didn't matter as much.

Amazing guides, delicious food, relaxing spa & friendly staff! Best stay in South Africa”

I really felt that this was our best stay in South Africa. We loved everybit of it. Game drive : Our guide Elode was super informative and good to speak with. We were as close as 1-2 metres from the animals and she really made sure we had a great time. Food : The buffet spread was amazing and we just could not stop eating. Being a vegetarian, I got such delicious food. Spa : One of the best spa experiences. Really relaxing Staff was also quite friendly. Highly recommended. Rooms were beautiful and everything was well looked after. Only thing I did not like was that its way too expensive to get transfers to Cape town from them(240 USD per person per trip). Thats ridiculous! Also the power cut is often so not so good. All in all super value for money!

Above average”

Being in the Game Lodge and going on game drives kind of felt like visiting the zoo or safari park. The territory is not too big and some animals have gps- so it‘s not really a big surprise if the ranger finds them. Lions are fed by staff- not a big difference to a zoo. Cabins are tiny and far away from comfortable.

great value for money”

When we booked on agoda we had no idea we had booked a package but only found out on arrival that ours was a package that included 2 safaris & dinner. We only did 1 evening safari & were lucky enough to see all the animals - highly recommend it. Dinner was excellent - even though we had made a booking the same day of our arrival i had made a request for vegan food - they prepared quite a few dishes for me for the buffet & had also made a chocolate brownie. Loved our stay!

Awesome stay and the game drive is superb”

We stay 3 days 2 nights, the stay include breakfast, afternoon high tea, dinner, evening and morning game drive. This is definetely worth for money. The bush chalet not very big but cosy, you can see the animal by using binocular and sit at your own deck. The game drive is another highlight. The guides are experience and fun. We really enjoy our stay.

Evening and Morning safari, nice lodges, excellent guides

We stayed at the waterhole lodges. Nice lodge and nice scenic views. Lodge was a bit small especially when you have your luggage inside. Our guide's name was Wessel and he was excellent and dedicated. Managed to see: lions, rhinos, hippos, zebras, giraffes, elephants and other animals on the two outings. Reception staff were ok. Swimming pool is small. Morning breakfast was nice but quality of food for the evening buffet was average. No wifi connections in rooms.

Tolle Lodge mit Widersprüchen”

Die Lodge ist insgesamt ein tolles Erlebnis und sehr zu empfehlen. Das Essen ist hervorragend, das Personal sehr ist zuvorkommend und man fühlt sich wohl. Allerdings passen hier teilweise die Verhältnisse nicht. Wenn man für eine Unterkunft knapp EUR 600,- pro Nacht aufruft (Sunset Area) und das nicht in der absoluten Hochsaison, dann hat man selbstverständlich auch einen gewissen Anspruch. Das begann bereits mit dem Pool. Es gab einen Bereich, welcher für Kinder und Familien zu nutzen war und einen reinen Erwachsenen Bereich. Der letztgenannte war immer wieder mit schreienden Kleinkinder besetzt. Nachdem das Personal darauf aufmerksam gemacht wurde, musste extra der Manager kommen, um die Gäste darauf hinzuweisen. Wir sind nicht kinderfeindlich oder ähnliches, aber ich gehe auch nicht an einen FKK Strand und lass meine Klamotten an?! Genauso sehe ich das mit Adults only. Sorry. Ein separater Poolbereich für die Sunset Area ( 8 Zimmer) wäre eine dem Luxus entsprechende Lösung.
