We were very spoiled with...

Lisa, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that giraffes were suitably engaging. They seem to consider the lodge as their own!

Thank you for a wonderful week end! Nadine and Monty were the perfect hosts. Rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious. The game drives were amazing and we couldn't believe how many animals we saw - loved the baby giraffes! The food was delicious, best lamb shank I ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

We spent one night at Swartberg Game Lodge, and it was a wonderful experience. Rooms beautifully appointed, large and airy. So much attention to detail. Our host and hostess were fantastic - warm welcome, good food and very informative on the game drive. Even though we had just come from Kruger National Park, the game drive was well worth while.
