We had one of our best dates at Nyaru. On our trip down the Garden route we decided to go for a quad bike safari. Our guide was amazing, very informative about the animals and South African wildlife in general. The quads were in good conditions and after the rain we had lots of fun in the mud. Halfway through...

We had a small wedding reception at Nyaru, quick drive from Mossel Bay. Loved the setting in the bush, had some good food and got to see an giraffe! Staff are very friendly and helpful, also keeping an eye on the guests to ensure both the safety of the guests and the animals.

We stayed for 2 days. Staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to assist you. Food not wow but definitely full fill the standard of a 3 star establishment.

What a fantastic experience! All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and happy to cater to your every need.

Game lodge in a beautiful setting between Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn. The main building and lodges are of high quality standards. Each lodge has an outside fireplace and a "braai" which is very nice and the fridge is stuffed with cold drinks. There is a small outdoor pool with a fence to keep little children out. The restaurant provides a...

This was our second visit to Nyaru, the previous one was in December 2012. We were saddened to hear of the poaching of Sir Fabian their lovely Rhino last year, and also the passing of the previous owner who was so enthusiastic and passionate about Nyaru. We had a pleasant greeting and were shown to our villa, previously we had...

We had our wedding at Nyaru and it could not have been more perfect!!! Elizna and Pierre just took care of EVERYTHING. We had a spit for dinner but asked for something a little more formal.

Unfortunately, we spent only one day/night in this fabulous Lodge. It's absolutely recommendable. We did a quad safari which is an adventurous experience. The direct contact to animals like a young giraffe (Ayane), the cute meerkat Raffiki and the two bushpigs Ben & Babs are just unforgettable. Not to forget the very nice and friendly staff. We would even give...

This lodge is really very nice. The welcome glass of juice and the friendly polite staff once again on our South African journey commend this country in my eyes. The young tame orphaned giraffe also came close enough inviting us to pet her. Her 2 short fat warthog friends are delightfully cheeky wandering about the place with a commanding ease!...
