We had a wonderful one night stay at the lodge. The game drive was spectacular with Ashley as our guide. We even saw the cheetah and the lions. The accommodation was really lovely and we slept well. Was a little disappointed in the food as there was a large tour group the same evening as us and some of the food choices were not available when we got there which was not late. I eventually opted for chicken which was dry and overcooked.Establishment Response:Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of Garden Route Game Lodge. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your game drives...

We had two nights over Christmas at the Garden Route Game Lodge and had a most fantastic time. The accommodation and food were wonderful and the staff were both friendly, efficient and helpful. Especially our guide, Alex, who took us out on three of our four drives. He displayed and imparted on us a great knowledge of the animals we saw and the local geography. The kids described their experience as "awesome" and it was the highlight of our holiday to Cape Town.

We wanted to give the children an African bush experience, but had little time on our holiday. We had a perfect two day stay, great accommodation, lovely dining and, most importantly for us, cracking game drives with a very knowledgeable guide. The cheetah hunt we were fortunate to see was a highlight. We would go again.
