We stayed at Garden Route Game Reserve for 2 nights. We were met on arrival by a friendly ranger, and shown to our very comfortable thatched roof chalet. The chalets are set in the bush, overlooking the game reserve, and feel private, yet affording wonderful views. The lodge reception and dining area are airy, yet welcoming, along with the friendly...

Two game drives with a great guide, Arie, then a free sherry, all you can eat buffet dinner with a lovely waitress, like Jacolene, and a delicious breakfast. All to be thoroughly recommended. The acommodation was very comfortable. A perfect stopping place on the Garden Route. Loved it.

We booked our stay from the UK last autumn. Everything we read was accurate and truthful. We arrived on the hottest day of the year in early March, and our first safari drive was that evening. What a great experience! Our guide, Leroy, was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the animals we saw that evening included giraffe, lions, rhinos and... More

It's not rugged or wild, by any means, but you do see animals and the accommodations are good. Love the views. Knowledgeable and passionate guides. Good for children as well as older people. Easier to spot the animals than to get a good wifi signal, however.

They reclaimed a barren land! They have began transforming it to what it once was, an african bush... They have respect and passion for what they do and if you have never experienced a true african safari (or if you are traveling through with your family), then you must pay a visit.
