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...

Thank you for the review. I will have a look into the menu. I believe that Monwa is more than capable of handling and hosting guests. I am busy on the farm sunrise to sunset and not always available, therefore we have Monwa. Regards

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.

We absolutely loved the lodge - so remote, quiet and peaceful. The unit was great - all we needed. Loved the view from our unit. Could sit there for hours. We will definitely return for a longer stay.

Wonderful, quiet place in the little karoo with lovely houses, delicious food and very friendly people. You can walk with the ostriches, feed the cheetahs, swim in the pool or go on a safari with some guys from the lodge and their 4x4.

Because of that, the manager gave me a walkietalkie in case of an emergency. But it was very easy to hike and I enjoyed the wonderful views. I had a really nice time and I...

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
