Truly beautiful place with a warm family atmosphere.
We spent 2 nights at Nyaru. This was the first time that we had ever been to a game lodge & our first time in Africa & we felt this was a great introduction.
The individual chalets are very nicely done up in safari style, with a patio in front with a buil-in barbeque. This was a great way to spend the evening, over a bottle of wine. They set up the barbeque for you, supply all the cutlery & will even provide salads & desserts if you want. Do try their Malva cake - its yum!
The main house has a well-stocked bar, TV lounges, & an outdoor verandah facing the bush. Tea & coffee is served whenever you want.
We did the quad-bike safari the next day with Chris & Elmarie & what a great time we had! Saw giraffe, zebra, impala, rhino, gnu etc.
There are lots of other activities to do around Mossel Bay which is just 20 mins away. Ruan told us about the 'catwalk' - with lions, which we did in the afternoon & what an amazing experience it was!!
Breakfast has all the things you can think of, as well as a cooked English breakfast. Lunch we drove into Mossel Bay. Dinner was nice, but limited choices, especially for vegetarians.
The family who runs it are extremely friendly & Nyaru feels like you are staying with friends. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
