Stayed with my family in June in a family room. It came with 2 extra beds and a box of toys to amuse the little ones. The room itself was large and the bathroom comfortable. Outside the room was a large grassed area for playing. There was a pool and two parks for the kids to swing, climb and explore.... More

My wife and I had an excellent time at the Garden Route Game Lodge. The staff was very helpful (i lost my SA to US power converter and they had a replacement) The game rangers were so entertaining and extremely bright. We were shocked at how cold it actually was at sunrise and sunset. Like 30f cold. Frost cold. But... More

This was my second visit to the Garden Route Game Lodge, and both have been really enjoyable. The chalets aren't large, but they are comfortable and well taken care of. The food is very good, and they catered well for me as a vegetarian. The guides are knowledgeable and interesting, and the game sightings were excellent. It is obviously a... More

Stayed at GRGM for a wedding, the rondawel (number 20) was acceptable for the 1night but any longer would have been awful. The rondawel is very small and cramped inside, you do not feel relaxed in there. The toilet could not flush properly, you had to pump the handle repeatedly to get it to flush. The bed was uncomfortable, both... More

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.

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.
