“Paradise on earth”
Reviewed 10 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We spent 3 nights, and the facilities are truly the best. The staff and the welcome was really special, friendly and always helpful. I can recommend this to anybody who enjoys nature. We did a few hikes and mountain biked with Giraffe, Cape Mountain Zebra, and other plains game nearly in arms reach. The game drives with the Swartberg mountain range as backdrop is truly spectacular. We'll definitely be back.

“African sunset with giraffes”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had such a nice couple days at the estate; the scenery was stunning and the lodge was beautiful, spacious and decorated with style. The kitchen was so well equipped, I had absolutely no excuse for "simple meals". Cohen was so helpful with everything and very knowledgable as he took us on the game drives. We were very spoiled with close up encounters with the giraffes at sunset; they even came close to our doorsteps at night! We´ll never forget this experience!

Lisa, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that giraffes were suitably engaging. They seem to consider the lodge as their own!

“Great value and fantastic experience”

Our three day stay at this wonderful private game lodge was an experience in a life time. Everything about the staff and what is on offer can only be commended. We were offered the very best hospitality and feel great affection for Monty and Nadine!

The Owner and staff are fully committed to a totally sustainable approach to running this facility and you get very close to nature during your stay.

The rates are extremely competative for what you get and we left feeling that we had great value overall. There are also many hidden treasures to be explored in the region.

Thank you to our guest for the wonderful feedback. We are delighted that the Lodge has been enjoyed by many over the past months.

We have taken the decision to convert Swartberg Private Game Lodge to an exclusive holiday rental property.
Guests are now renting the Lodge, for groupsof up to twelve guests, on a self-catering basis. There is a fantastice farm-style kitchen in the Lodge.

The area is very safe and easy to explore, providing a great game-viewing experience in spectacular scenery. A game-viewing vehicle is available for rental.
