My husband and I took our 3 year old for his first wildlife experience, and what a experience it was. Not only did he get to see all the animals up close, but they made the visit special with little gifts. The family friendly environment of the Lodge added to making the visit even more enjoyable. I would recommend the... More

We stayed at the Garden Route Game Lodge as part of a wedding party that took the whole weekend. The whole experience was fabulous. The GRGL staff worked tirelessly to produce an absolute magical experience for all guests. The chalets are small but comfortable and more than met our needs. The game drives were simply superb with lots of wild... More

An excellent one night here. Sadly the light was bad for the game drive but the guide was very knowledgable and found every available type of animal. This included a cheetah which had killed a springbok.

We attended a wedding at the lodge for 2 nights. The staff were helpful and attentive. The game drives allowed us to see many wonderful animals and the interaction was quiet special. The food was delicious and the experience of the braai was awesome!

We stopped at the Garden Route Game Lodge as part of our tour of South Africa. It was a lovely place to stay with helpful staff and lots to see. The guides were informed and enthusiastic and the food was wonderful - particularly the breakfasts.

We spent a night here in summer and it was delightful. The room had everything we needed, although the bed was short. The food was absolutely delicious and the creme brulee was to die for. The safari experience is definitely one I would recommend.

Checked into GRGL stayed in a chalet which was invitingly warm and very clean. In no time we were on our way on an evening game drive, learning of the conservation and eco plans for the park as well as sighting many African animals. Our guide was the head ranger Hannes so we were very well informed. Then back to... More

This was the first safari experience for me and my girlfriend. We stayed in one of the huts which were small but cosy and have everything you need. The safari tour was excellent and covered all the main animal attractions i.e. lions, buffalo, rhino, hippos, giraffes and cheetah as well as many others. Our tour guide was Hannis and he... More

What a great experience for kids! We stayed 3 nights to give our kids their first safari-experience - and they enjoyed it! Everything was above expectations - from the rooms, to the staff and the park itself. About the park: This is not a game reserve like the ones you find in the North of the country or like Addo...
