African Game Lodge

In a pristine valley surrounded by the spectacular Langeberg Mountains, lies African Game Lodge, part of a conservation project dedicated to Wildlife Rehabilitation, Awareness and preserving Bio-diversity.

We are conveniently located only 2 and a half hours from Cape Town and a 30 minute drive from picturesque Montagu.

We share our space with a host of animals both big and small. Through careful management of the environment, we are encouraging the return of many endemic species. The reserve has a wealth of bird-life and bio-diversity, offering guests the opportunity to experience the varied yet specialised eco-systems of the Little Karoo.

If you love the environment as much as we do, you will be pleased to know that African Game Lodge is completely off-the-grid. Running an extensive solar system, our sustainable approach ensures that we support local and impact global.

At African Game Lodge, our guests can enjoy nature without expense to the environment through our sustainable approach and off-the-grid solar solution.

African Game Lodge is a private conservation area outside Montagu in the Little Karoo, Western Cape dedicated to preserving the rich biodiversity of the area.

The lodge has traditional Karoo thatch chalets with log fires and private braais. Everything is provided, from towels, bath robes, bathroom toiletries, a tea and coffee tray and cleaning materials.

For a truly special back-to-nature experience you can book into a Private Tented Camp for a romantic time together. Full board and solar powered, the old style Leopard Bush Camp has a romantic four-poster bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. Wake up to birdsong and sunshine on your balcony as you view the cheetah below.

The Honeymoon Hideaway-Caracal Bush Camp is privately situated in a special wilderness area, complete with sparkling dam. With its hot-water bathroom, a fully-equipped kitchen, a fire pit and a large viewing and braai deck, you'll be spirited away into another world of nature and romance.

Relax and enjoy some of Montagus finest award-winning wines from the licensed bar while watching the sunset over four thousand hectares of unspoilt flora, fauna and Fynbos. Braai on your stoep while watching the eland go past or share your bread with a friendly ostrich.

Guests can book guided nature and game viewing drives or guided hikes and get close to the indigenous wildlife such as Leopard, Wildebeest, Springbok, Kudu, Rhebok, Steenbok, Eland and more. You can also relax at the outdoor pool with a book on nature from the library and make new friends.

  • "A M A Z I N G!!"

    24 July 2017

    "We where welcome friendly and show to our house by Monzi, who is very friendly and helpful and share a lot of interesting facts. You just want to sit outside it is so peaceful and quite. Our breakfast was a feast. Our highlight was the feeding of the cheetah. There are so many hiking trails. You cannot stay for just one night. We will definitely go back again."

    08 April 2017

    "Last month we spent two nights in a self catering chalet which was fantastic, it was clean, spacious and perfect for our needs. The meals in the evening were delicious and Monwa, who was in charge at the time, was efficient, helpful and very knowledgeable about the animals he showed us. Would definitely return to stay here again"

    "It was a great experience and the staff was very friendly and kind.<div>The lodges are not so nice. A bit old, cold and particularly with no water. It would be necessary to make a little renovation.</div><div><br /></div><div><br /><div><br /></div></div>"

  • "Peace and quiet with a stunning view"

    08 December 2014

    "We really enjoyed our weekend getaway. This is a special place with a certain tranquility as one is totally off the grid - no cell phone reception or Eskom but solar power and fast satellite wifi in the reception area. The breathtaking scenery added to our enjoyment, not to mention the cheetah feeding and game drive."

  • "Escape to the bush"

    03 November 2014

    "We can't recommend African Game lodge enough! The farm is absolutely stunning, a real escape from the city. Very delicious meals, friendly staff and wonderful hospitality. The accommodation was cozy and comfortable. The game viewing was a really special experience for us and was enhanced by the expert knowledge of our guides. Sitting and watching the cheetahs is an encounter we will never forget."

    01 October 2012

    "Our family from the UK were hear and we spent 2 nights at the Lodge. It really is the most relaxing place to stay. The peace and quiet is just what one needs. Mandy and Len, the owners, are fantastic. They make one feel so at home and are just wonderful the way they are with the animals. We can really recommend this place for a restful holiday. This was our second stay and we will definitely be going back again. Thank you."

  • "Sad to leave"

    09 January 2009

    "We had a wonderful 3 day stay at the lodge with our 2 teenage boys. It was very relaxing and peaceful, though with plenty to do, such as cycling, fishing, target shooting and horse-riding. We stayed in a self catered chalet which was very comfortable and clean and well-equipped. We also had the opportunity to get 'up close and personal' with the cheetahs. The staff very extremely helpful and friendly and made sure we had all we needed. We all came away feeling totally chilled out and rather sad to leave. We would definitely return!"

  • "Enjoyable stay"

    27 September 2008

    "Overall we had a very enjoyable stay. The quality of accommodation exceeded our initial expectations. Staff was friendly and helpful. We are however disappointed that an establishment that 'sells' the game farm experience, had relatively few bigger game animals (quantity as well as number of species)."

  • "Fantastic"

    02 April 2008

    "Words cannot express enough how wonderful this place is - hospitality, comfort and stupendous setting are all there along with a joyous glimpse of African flora and fauna in the one day and night we were there for and we cannot wait to go back and see and absorb more."

  • "Not to be missed!"

    18 April 2007

    "We had a superb time here.Natalie and Michael were brilliant hosts and visiting this place is a must for anyone who wants great hospitality - with a truly individual touch - excellent accommodation in chalets furnished to a very high standard and the most amazing tranquil surroundings.Natalie took us on a great safari drive pointing out lots of wildlife and patiently answering our endless questions!In the evening we enjoyed a much recommended wine tasting with Michael and then enjoyed a truly delicious meal with our hosts.The following morning we visited the cheetahs which was indescribable and then my husband and 8yr old son went out on quadbikes.Anyone who passes by on the opportunity of visiting this place must be mad! Our only disappointment was the fact we could only stay for a day. "

  • "Fabulous weekend"

    25 February 2007

    "My husband and I had a fantastic time at African Game Lodge.Our chalet was gorgeously decorated and very cosy. The weather was awful so we made full use of our fire place! All in all we had a fab weekend and will definitely visit again. Michael & Natalie made us feel very welcome and were very gracious hosts. "

  • "Overnight Stay at African Game Lodge"

    11 January 2007

    "We were warmly greeted and shown to a quality chalet with all possible appliances readily available. The two experiences which will stay with us are patting the cheetahs and the safari game drive. During the drive we were fortunate enough to see Gemsbok, Eland, Oryx, Daika, Black Cape Buffalo and several birds of prey.The Safari game Lodge is a very peaceful stopover for one or two days and can be recommended to all who travel along the inner "Garden Route" ( Montagu, Oudtshorn )."
