Driving through the winding hills, we got to our simple but comfortable cabin by night to be greeted by an amazing array of stars providing the only light in this off the grid private reserve. Apart from the crackling fire in the braai, silence was the norm for the next 3 days as we spotted eland, kudu and many other...

Lovely drive on a good dirt road (we've an ordinary little car). Monwa, the very friendly manager met us on arrival and pointed out our chalet. The lodge is off the grid, so solar panels provide the electricity in the self-catering chalets. Monwa led us later to the cheetah enclosure to see the 2 cheetahs being fed. Unfortunately the path...

Thank you for the review. The electrical issue was sorted out immediately. Unfortunately these things happen when you least expect it. There is however a reset button to silence the alarm should it happen through the night. I do not think guests understand how much hard work is put into making the chalets as comofortable as they are 30km into...

My partner and I spent 2 nights in this wonderful place. Monwa, was brilliant. He was so welcoming and friendly as we arrived and throughout our stay. Breakfast was great and there is a braai on the stoep for you to cook your dinner/lunch on, as there is literally nothing for miles and the nearest town is Montagu. Which is...

We loved our stay at African Game Lodge! The staff was fantastic and helpful. The game drive was great and the giraffes were the highlight. The view of the stars at night was the most spectacular display we have ever seen and would love to go back. It was the perfect experience to get away.

Greet and I stayed in the African GameLodge for 3 nights, full board. The location is absolutely breathtaking, the house was clean and the hatched roof kept it really cool inside. The full board was excellent, service likewise, friendly and service minded. We saw a lot of animals such as eland, zebra, oryx/gemsbok and giraffe. All in all EXCELLENT !!!

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
