Was there with my wife and my little kids and we had an extraordinary relaxing stay in the lodge. Calm, peaceful, completely off. We spotted the full range of animals but the silent landscape, the colours and the light that permently changed as well worth going there.. the staff was easygoing, always on and gives a feeling of home. every...

Beautiful setting. So far removed from the stresses of everyday life that one can't help reflecting on what's actually important. Friendly staff and expert guide. The cheetah feedings were something our children will remember forever.

Between our first and second visit at this beautiful place there were only 2 weeks. We visited it with two separate groups of friends and everybody was just enthusiastic about the quietness, the comfort and the very friendly staff. We enjoyed a beautiful African sky and very interesting game drives.

The resort is very nice. We were staying in one of the two bedroom charlets and the rooms were clean and comfortable and the view incredible. We only stayed one night and went the game drive in the morning. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to also see the fossils and the cave art. But maybe next time. The guide... More

The staff at African game lodge are friendly and helpful. The tent is comfy and clean although the stove for the kettle didn't work and the curtains of the bed aren't put on very neatly. The smells of the drains from the houses next door blow straight into the tent. The food is also overpriced. But overall we had a... More

Kilometres away from...anything, in the middle of the mountains, you find an oasis of calm, peace, and harmony with nature. Well organized, tidy, clean, good food, animals passing by your cottage. All facilities powered up by green energy sources. Enjoy the safari, visiting giraffes, zebras, and if lucky, leopards

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in a vast valley amidst the spectacular highland mountainous scenery of the Little Karoo, lies African Game Lodge, a private nature reserve where wild animal have a future. Whether you are looking for a relaxing nature break, need to recharge your batteries or you are looking for an active holiday where you can hike & bike in natural surrounds, African Game Lodge is ideally situated, being only 2 ½ hours from Cape Town and just 30 minutes from the magical town of Montagu. Well-appointed thatch cottages, built in traditional Karoo architecture, provide a comfortable retreat where you can relax and look out over the valley, open spaces and surrounding mountains. Each Cottage is equipped with a fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, and the thatched roofs ensures an inviting coolness during the heat of summer. Awake from a good night sleep, and venture out into the healthy mountain air to choose from a variety of activities such as day hikes, short walks, self-drives, Eco & Game Viewing Drives, bird watching, nature exploring, or just sit and absorb the absolute silence and sounds of nature. ... more   less
