This is a new game lodge just outside Oudtshoorn en route to the Cango caves. I stayed here earlier this month as they were running a superb special offer which compared very favourably with other lodges in the area.
I thoroughly recommend the fabulous tented accommodation - go for the superior rooms which are right on the edge of the lake. This is NOT the place if you want a safari with lots of big cats - there aren't any - in any case, if you're in the Western Cape that's unlikely to be your priority. However, it is surrounded by beautiful fynbos, it's easy to get to, and the service is excellent.
It's also possible to go just for a game drive or a drink / meal if you fancy whiling away a couple of hours in an idyllic setting.
