Although Jan was not around during our stay, Sonia was extremely hospitable to us and every single dinner meal was very tasty and unique.(We really miss your dinner meal Sonia). Bush walk in Grietjie was wonderful and we were lucky enough to watch Rhino... More

We stayed two nights at Casart Game Lodge after 10 days in Kruger Park. Although we would not go to Casart Game Lodge for any type of safari adventure, after we had been in so many others this one did not really compare, we go back just for the Lodge. However, other guest were going on the safaris and seemingly... More

There are very few words that will do this amazing little haven justice but I'm going to give it my best shot! Blown away by the experience of landing in Phalaborwa airport, we were excited to see what the rest of our 1st time on safari had in store. We arrived at Casart mid afternoon to a warm smile from...

We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful setting and excellent service and hospitality from owner managers Jan and Sonia. The accommodation was well appointed and catered for every need - thoughful touches. Each meal was a delight. Relaxing in the pool area overlooking a beautiful valley of wild bush and an animal drinking hole was delightful. At night around the fire-pit after... More

We stayed at the CGL for 5 unforgettable nights end March. The lodge is situated at about 8 km from the main road, in the middle of Grietjie, a large private game park, connected to the Kruger Park. Everything was just perfect, from the guesthouse itself to the food and everything between, and all this at a right price. You... More

A perfect experience from the moment of arrival to (far too early ;) departure: Jan welcomed us with cool towels and a cocktail on the superb terrace overlooking the game reserve and equipped with highest quality furniture! After a warmhearted chat, we were brought to our room which was as clean as it could possibly get and lovely decorated with... More
