After trying unsuccessfully to find a suitable lunch spot in Albertinia we were delighted to find the Garden Route Lodge sign posted along the road. We were en route from Franschhoek to Kysna. As soon as we drove through the main gate we spotted a duiker in the bush and then a few springboks in the grass. The large timber... More

I liked the GR Game Lodge. Rooms were comfortable, food to a good standard and staff very attentive and helpful. The outside seating and pool also good. The game drives were fun. OK, it isn't the Kruger Park and they know where the animals are within the park but you do get to see most of them up close and... More

As we were in Cape Town for a couple of weeks to see family we wanted to take the opportunity to show our 2yr daughter as much wildlife as possible. The reserves we've been to before, and many of the others we checked with, don't take children that young. Garden Route Game Lodge did, so we booked a couple of... More

We stayed at the Garden Route Game Lodge 2.-3.12.14. The weather was very bad from a tourist point of view, but we understand that the nature needs water and we aren't made of sugar, so there were no problem. The lodge staff members are very friendly and kind. Many thanks to Matthew, who met us and showed around on our... More

My wife (60) and myself (66) stayed at the Garden Route Game Lodge a week ago for the third time. We have used the occasion of our wedding anniversary as a reason to spoil ourselves.

Honestly enjoyed our stay. The only thing I can recommend is there be more channels for one to watch, but hey, we shouldn't be watching tv anyways. That's about it, which goes to show that I really could not fault the game lodge. Bianca Denton (I'll be writing a blog about our stay soon, so keep an eye out for... More

The staff are excellent and the safari trips are fine if this is a first safari visit. It is a small game reserve (not in size of land) but in... More
