For us it was perfect as we are staying in Cape Town so it's 1.45hr away. It is a small safari but for us it was perfect. We arrived and had a nice lunch, we hung around for an hr or so. We left exactly in time. The guide was really good, helpful and informative. It took around 2.45hrs. I... More

We decided to spend Christmas day away from home on a game drive followed by Christmas lunch. Sadly our expectations were not met. Fairy Glen it is a smaller area for the animals, but we do not like to see animals in enclosures - namely the lions and buffalo. To us the buffalo looked depressed. They were not in the... More

Me and my partner spent a night at Fairy Glen and are more than satisfied. The lodge was roomy and cosy and we could watch rhinos, elephants, zebras etc from our veranda. And we heard the lions roar before we went to bed, just fantastic! All the staff were very friendly with an extra thanks to our excellent ranger Andrew!... More

First of all you should know the difference between a game reserve and a National park. A game reserve can be compared to a very very big ( in hectares ) zoo in a natural setting where you can experience wildlife , nature as it is . Now when it's established what to expect this is a very accomplished game... More

My wife and I visited Fairy Glen for one night on our honeymoon, and were very impressed with it. We came knowing not compare it to far larger game reserves elsewhere, and so were not at all disappointed by it! Visitors should recognise that it is not trying to be Kruger or some other far larger game park where one... More

We visited end of February 2014 the Fairy Glen Safari Worcester (day tour from Cape Town). It costs a lot of money entrance and the safari was poor. Animals in prision - no big 5. Disapponiting performance! Where were the big 5? Overspended money for poor safari and caged/inprisioned animals. This "safari" was not worth the money!!!! We will not... More
