Garden Route Game Lodge
The Garden Route
Set against the backdrop of the majestic Langeberg mountain Range, the Garden Route Game Lodge guards the entrance to South Africa's world famous Garden Route Coast.
Only 3.5 scenic hours drive from Cape Town, this malaria-free, 2,000 hectare private game reserve is ideal for families wanting a short safari experience. The reserve is home to a variety of animal and bird life including giraffe, white rhino, lion, elephant, buffalo, kudu, zebra, wildebeest , and in total there are approximately 400 animals on the reserve.
Morning and evening game drives are led by experienced and knowledgeable game rangers who share their knowledge of the wildlife. Children of any age are allowed on the game drives, making this a wonderful family experience.
Children will also love the interactive tours of the Reptile Center, home to numerous snakes and crocs and the Cheetah Outreach Program where they will learn more about the worlds fastest mammal. Other facilities for younger guests include heated and cold swimming pool and 2 children's themed play areas.
The main lodge rooms combine luxury and comfort with an African theme. Complete with en-suite bathrooms, the rooms lead onto a West facing balcony which offers breathtaking African sunsets all within steps of the pool. These rooms are ideal for families and are located closer to the lodge amenities.
The luxury en-suite thatched chalets use natural materials such as thatch, stone and timber. Linked to the main lodge via a wooden walkway, these chalets offer seclusion and privacy.

The Garden Route Game Lodge was just right for us. The staff were so helpful and really knew their facts. They were happy to provide meals for the kids when we needed them. Although the lodge is small and only has a few of each animal the game drives were perfect for kids as we could get really close to all the animals in a short space of time which Bella loved. The food was good and rooms were a generous size. The highlight of the lodge stay and in fact of the whole holiday for us was the evening we got to feed the elephants and unexpectedly were invited to stroke the cheetah. I think we were more excited than the kids! Even Freya at 7 months old was allowed to have a tug at the poor cheetahs ears! Both experiences were dreams come true and so special for all of us. Bella even forgot how poorly she was and was running up to the elephants giving them handfuls of food and loving it!
Had a fabulous time with friendly staff both on the drives and in house, would recommend it as it is fairly near Cape Town. The only suggestion would be to ask if a visit at the waterhole would provide more sighting of wildlife. Thanks for the recommendation.

Relax on your own private deck, and if you are lucky you may see an elusive bushbuck or hear the cry of the African fish eagle. Each en-suite tent is equipped with military campaign style furniture similar to that used by the early explorers.
