We stayed at the Airport Game Lodge one night before we had to catch a flight on the morning. I wasn't super impressed by the rooms or the food. The room was clean but our room was so big and empty it felt like we were sleeping in a garage. The pictures showed beautiful rooms with fireplaces... ours looked nothing...

It's right by the airport but with all the animals on the grounds, feels more like a rural ranch. I left my room early one morning to find a large male peacock hanging out in front of the door. That was a first! They have a nice pool, hammocks, a bar and restaurant, and lots of easy to join tours....

What strikes me the most at Game lodge is the ease of some of their staff,they do get overwhelmed sometimes... a bit of polishing up comes in play especially the restaurant staff in the newly opened restaurant ( which has a barn like style with a nice pool and comfy outside seats). From the airport pick up by Yohan,to Eva's...

Stayed at the Game lodge Feb 2017, the first thing you notice is how quiet the lodge is to say it is so close to the airport. There are several animals including deer and ostriches in a securely fenced off area that you can buy food to feed. There are 2 nice clean pools one in the gardens and the...
