Our family of four (including two children of 9 and 7), spent two nights at the garden Route game lodge. We arrived early on our first day, knowing we'd be unable to get into our room before 2pm, but happy to lounge around by the pool and check out the reptile park until it was ready. Our Guide for the...

It was very pleasant to be welcomed by a ranger who had a cap and kid's pack just for our 8 year old son. First impression always counts... Our two nights' stay did not disappoint. Room was ok and comfortable, breaksfast-lunch-dinner were superb... even our picky eater tried impalas and ostrich on the menu. The four game drives we did...

Lovely Game Resort. Lot's of fun. Very friendly staff and great guides taking you on safari. Good location, easy to reach. Saw Big Five except leopard. Food was good (but restaurant can get a little busy). We had a chalet - small, but comfortable and nice.
