Lovely Game Resort. Lot's of fun. Very friendly staff and great guides taking you on safari. Good location, easy to reach. Saw Big Five except leopard. Food was good (but restaurant can get a little busy). We had a chalet - small, but comfortable and nice.

Our third hotel on a Saga tour of the Garden Route and what a cracker! Not so much for the hotel itself, although this and the food was pretty good, but for the included Game Drive. Friends have commented after visiting various National Parks that they drive a long way, bouncing around in a Land Rover and see a few...

I loved the stay! The chalets are just drop dead gorgeous, the dining space and the staff are a delight! Our safari guide Tim was such a delight! He makes you feel so connected to nature. You can see the passion in his eyes. The details he goes in to with each animal I can guarantee not any other person...

Spanning two hours in the evening and another two hours the next morning, we saw a lot of wildlife and birds. Our guide Robyn was knowledgeable and took time to explain what we saw. Accommodation was top notch with all the creature comforts and amazing cuisine that one would like to enjoy. This is definitely a place to stay at...

All our hopes and expectations were met to the full here. On arrival the Staff were very welcoming and organised. The accommodation was very good, most unusual and very clean (only criticism was that we'd paid over £100 extra for a view of the waterhole but couldn't see it without standing on tiptoe to one side of the balcony because...

I had booked a honeymoon suite, and the chalet had a amazing view. I had to wait 2 hours for the room as their check in time is 2pm which I disliked. It gave me the feeling of the wild and made me excited for the game drives. The game drives were good with a decent vehicle and a ranger...

As this was our first safari, we didn't know what to expect. This experience far exceeded our expectations. We saw incredible animals (giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, lion, elephant, hippo, wildebeest, kudu, etc.) frequently - in fact, we rarely drove 10 minutes without coming quite close to them. Our guide (Abri) was very knowledgeable. We learned far more than we ever thought!...

My husband and I had an amazing time at GR Game Lodge. We wanted to have a couple of nights there, but unfortunately they were really busy and could only fit us in for one night (it was Valentine's night though).
