This was the first trip to the GRGL, and it was spectacular. The food was very good, and the safari was outstanding. Calvin, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable on the animals, flora and fauna! I would highly recommend GRGL; it was well worth the time and money!

Our third stay at this game lodge. First visited some twelve years ago, when the current owners first took over. They have transformed the place, quite beautifully. Of course it is a little "canned" as the available space could not accommodate enough animals to allow the predators to roam freely. However the Lions enclosure is quite vast and there is... More

My wife and I first visited the Lodge in October 2007. We were very impressed with the service and the park. Now seven years later, we found the experience even better. The gates to the "enclosures" are gone making the game drive a more open experience. The whole visit from being met on arrival, the accommodation, the game drive, (thanks... More

It is a very nice place to stay. The game lodge was perfect and we had a lot of information about wildlife. They do not have thousands of animals but the have a good variety of them and they are very well treated. Breakfast was amazing! delicious!

After a family road trip, our last stop was the Garden Route Game Lodge. We stayed for 3 nights. Positives: The morning and evening games drives were awesome, our guide Kelvin was very knowledgeable and loved the fact that he was determined to find animals that we had not seen. My son got to ride in-front with Kelvin which he... More

We spent two nights at Garden Route Game Lodge and what a wonderful stay it was! There is so much on which to compliment the lodge. Firstly, the personal attention we received was outstanding and something we haven't experienced to such an extent on any of our travels, both locally and internationally. From our personal guide waiting to greet us... More

I was recently on holiday in SA visiting some extended family with my boyfriend and when traveling past we decided to pop in and see what this place was like. When we arrived we were greeted with smiles. A female game driver took up to a room to show us what they were like and due to her extremely frisky... More
