The little houses are fully functioning, including a good shower and an ok bed. The game reserve is too small, you are done with it rather quickly. Dinner was ok, nothing exceptional, all in all rather touristy.

WE had a wonderful time at the garden route game lodge. Jason, our guide, took us on two game drives every day and we kept on learning and discovering new things about the fantastic animals living in the huge resort. The accomendation as well as the breakfast and dinner where fabulous, would definitely recommend the garden route game lodge!!

Everything over our two night stay was wonderful. Setting, accommodation, food & wine, but of course the wildlife stole the show! Our guide, Jason, was so fantastic and so knowledgable -we had 4 amazing drives with him. Thank you everyone, an unforgettable experience.

As soon as we entered the reserve, we saw wildlife and felt truly immersed into safari life. My room was spacious and offered all the facilities I would want. It seemed somewhat strange to me that I was, in fact, a few meters away from the next room, due to the privacy of the verandas with steps leading to an... More

Spent just one night here in one of their newest suites. It was beautifully decorated with modern African touches throughout. The bed was very comfortable, dressed with expensive white linens. But the best part of the room was the outdoor space. We had a beautiful porch overlooking the expansive plains, and we saw plenty of animals from our room, including... More
