This was my first stay at GRGL. It turned out to be a very enjoyable stay. The Lodge is full of African Ambiance and the chalets were great. We had a wonderful view from our deck. The meals were also very good. The highlight was the game drive. Our informative guide was able to get up really close to some... More

We stayed in a round wood cabin overlooking part of the game reserve. The main lodge was lovely and the food was good with a bit of choice. We... More

Spent 3 days at the Garden Route game Lodge to attend a wedding. Everything was fabulous. Accommodation was great. Beautiful location for a wedding or celebration. The food was excellent. I just wish I had the oxtail casserole recipe. The game drives were so good! Our guide Matthew was fantastic and we learned so much. Thankyou to all the staff.
