We visited the game farm in April to escape for a weekend away from a busy work life. No cell phones etc. to break the peaceful nature sounds. The farm is quite high in the mountains and the sky clear blue at night with most wonderful starry night sky. It feels as if you could touch the sky. An asset...

Marietjie and I did a round trip from George to CT via Montagu and our last 2 days were at African Game Lodge .You cannot get a more peaceful place especially in the Eland Cottage about 70m from the nearest cottage and the Lapa. No cellphone reception or internet connection in the cottage but if you want internet etc you...

Monwa is a wonderful person to deal with. Excellent guide and we enjoyed the game drive. he has a lot of knowledge. The dirt road was a bit challenging but driving slow we got there in the end. We loved the animals coming to the cottage. that was real fun. Cottage beautiful. A nice weekend for just relaxing.

I bought a voucher on Wikideals to visit the lodge. I dealt with Monwa from the start. He is very professional and always answers one's e-mail quickly. When we arrived, we were welcomed by Monwa in person, he had a big smile and was very friendly. I must say he is definitely a gem and asset to your company. The...

We stayed on 19 - 21 March for our anniversary. Booked via Wikideals on a special. We had a very very relaxing and quiet stay which we really enjoyed - there is no wifi or mobile reception, so you can really just relax and switch off completely. We were greeted so warmly by Monwa - he was lovely and helpful...

We were completely enchanted by the African Game Lodge. The location is remote, totally peaceful and utterly magical. Given the extremely reasonable price we were expecting fairly basic accommodation but on the contrary we found our cottage very well and tastefully furnished and extremely well appointed. It also stayed remarkably cool even in the midday sun and had a huge...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in a vast valley amidst the spectacular highland mountainous scenery of the Little Karoo, lies African Game Lodge, a private nature reserve where wild animal have a future. Whether you are looking for a relaxing nature break, need to recharge your batteries or you are looking for an active holiday where you can hike & bike in natural surrounds, African Game Lodge is ideally situated, being only 2 ½ hours from Cape Town and just 30 minutes from the magical town of Montagu. Well-appointed thatch cottages, built in traditional Karoo architecture, provide a comfortable retreat where you can relax and look out over the valley, open spaces and surrounding mountains. Each Cottage is equipped with a fireplace for those chilly winter evenings, and the thatched roofs ensures an inviting coolness during the heat of summer. Awake from a good night sleep, and venture out into the healthy mountain air to choose from a variety of activities such as day hikes, short walks, self-drives, Eco & Game Viewing Drives, bird watching, nature exploring, or just sit and absorb the absolute silence and sounds of nature. ... more   less
