Need to get away from your hectic schedule ? This is the venue for you. Tucked away in the mountains on a scenic dirt road, we were impressed by the location and quality of the cottages. Eland roamed the camp regularly. We enjoyed the silence and night skies and enjoyed the quality of dinner served. The freedom of walking anywhere...

The unit we stayed in had no aircon as it is solar powered, however it was really cool thanks to the high ceiling and grass roof. The hot water is heated with gas but the supply to the shower was at constant temperature, we stayed at some places where it is really uncomfortable to shower as the temperature and pressure...

The African Game Lodge is a wonderful opportunity for a bush experience very close to Cape Town. The chalets are beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need. It is very relaxing to stay here and everybody was very helpful.

The unit we stayed in was quite comfortable. We enjoyed the serine Karoo beauty of the area and the extreme remoteness. We took a self-drive and saw some game and went to view the Bushman art. On the downside....unfortunately the fridge (solar/battery powered) did not work very well but the Lodge is well prepared with ice. The pool was a...

Not much can be said that already hasn't in the great reviews. Mowana is always around and so helpful if you need him. He even let us feed the cheetahs with him. The views are stunning and you really feel like you can relax as it's so quiet. The food we had was fantastic too, we were treated like royalty...

Overall we enjoyed our stay in the little cottage with its spacious terrace where you can truly relax and take in the views. The remoteness and scenery out weigh the animals which are fairly scarce ( not with standing we saw ostrich, wildebeest, kudo & Eland). It was nice to be able to freely walk out in the countryside amongst...

We had a lovely stay. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Cheetah conservation in action and the daily feeds are very impressive to be that close to these awesome cats. Great to enjoy the quiet nights, eland, zebra, kudu etc and inquisitive ostriches.

Thank you for the fantastic weekend! We don't know when we have relaxed quite so fully as we did at the African Game Lodge. The weather was perfect, exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries. The chalets were very well equipped, staff were super friendly and helpful as usual. With small children the crisp white linen is such a...
