Thank you for a wonderful week end! Nadine and Monty were the perfect hosts. Rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious. The game drives were amazing and we couldn't believe how many animals we saw - loved the baby giraffes! The food was delicious, best lamb shank I ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

During December, wanting to escape the extremely cold weather in the USA, my adult daughter and I decided to visit a game reserve and experience Africa, but also wanted to be comfortable, safe & in a malaria free area. I was concerned about driving , but the directions provided on the website were easy to follow and our small rental... More

We spent one night at Swartberg Game Lodge, and it was a wonderful experience. Rooms beautifully appointed, large and airy. So much attention to detail. Our host and hostess were fantastic - warm welcome, good food and very informative on the game drive. Even though we had just come from Kruger National Park, the game drive was well worth while.

My wife and I wanted to spend the last two nights of our one month honeymoon in South Africa in a game lodge within driving distance of Cape Town and were very happy to have found SPGL after having researched it and all the competition in the Western Cape. Having done several safaris up in Kruger beforehand we did not... More

Stunning setting against the dramatic Swartberg Mountains. Their website completely understates it. Hosts were a very personable and friendly young couple with whom one felt completely at home. The food was exceptional and the rooms spacious and comfortable. The Lodge itself has the peace and calm of an old karoo farmhouse. Nicely secluded and off the main track. Cannot accommodate...
