A long drive but worth it
Gillian_R, Jan 2023
The drive is long but it is totally worth it! Vaughn did everything he could to keep us comfortable - the van has AC and he did stops about every two hours for toilets, coffee etc. in addition to the schedule tour stops at Cape Agulhas etc. He shared information and was happy to answer questions. The game lodge was great -rooms were nice, WiFi, and a great little pool to relax after a long drive. Food was amazing! And of course the safari drives were the highlight - our guide was Brandon, funny and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Good but info needed beforehand
Barry_I, Nov 2022
Our inability to found out the itinery beforehand, to understand what was exactly on offer, eg. A swimming pool, and whether the pickup point time was +/_ x minutes. In the event all went well

weekend get-away
Renee_C, Jul 2022
This was a great trip. Benjamin was a great tour guide who helped make a great weekend possible with visits to lots of stops to and from the Game Lodge. The two safari trips were fantastic, and the lodge was a fabulous place to stay.
Wonderful Safari

Andy_P, May 2022
Amazing trip with Gareth. Nature at its best with a visit to the game reserve, whale spotting, penguins and stunning scenery and coastline.
Never again!
Ivana_P, Dec 2021
The worst Safari I've ever made: all the offers are misleading - is not a BIG5! The lot is huge but have just a few animals you probably can count on your fingers, like 2 elephants, few buffaloes and zebras, no leopard or other announced in their field guide(giraffe, hippos, ostrich or caracal)! Even the transport was a disaster: we should be picked up at 7am but the bus came at 9 and we spent 7 hours inside (with 2 breaks) arriving not at 2pm but at 4, having just a few minutes to check in the cottage, get dressed and running to the jeep. The driver then stacked in mud, changing vehicle in 20 minutes to see less of the evening. The second day we should see the lions and elephants, which took us exactly 38 minutes ride to discover and barely seen three sleeping lionesses in high grass, and later just two(!) elephants playing around. The only positive point was the excellent food and nice and clean cottage, and the polite bus driver giving us some thoughts about South Africans politics and economy. Fact: look for another safari, spend little bit more money to get exited and satisfied!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Dear Ivana _P Thank you for your valued feedback, I wish to sincerely apologize for your unpleasant experience during our 2 Day tour. Starting with the pick up time, we indeed ran a little behind schedule because we had late bookings joining the tour which were staying around Cape Town where we mostly do pick ups, this together with traffic delayed our departure from Cape Town to come to you in Gordon's Bay, this of course happened after we had sent the collection times to yourself and others. With the Game Lodge being 350 km away from Cape Town even via Hermanus , I am not sure how we could have taken 7 hours and for that I apologize for such discomfort. The weather was also not very nice hence the further unfortunate incident of being stuck in the mud and the animals retreating to shading resulting in poor sightings. Again, I wish to profusely apologize for your experience and for our failure to meet and exceed your expectations, this particular tour runs 3 times a week Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays not only because it's affordable but because of it's offering and our endeavor to exceed our client's expectations at all times. I am delighted to see there were some positives from your tour, the excellent food, nice chalets and Sibusiso being polite and informative. Kind regards Ntsiko and Bokbus Team
Far Exceeded Expectation
JUSTIN_T, Sept 2019
I saw almost every large African animal that I was aware of and many that I didn't know existed. I missed the giraffes and the oryx but that was part of the fun of it. It wasn't a cookie cutter experience. The animals were free ranging and you had to go find them. There was no saying what you were going to bump into. Some of the groups got lucky and saw the giraffes and oryx that our group didn't get to see, but we saw baby cheetahs instead, so I didn't feel like we missed out. The guides were fun, kind, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I asked tons of questions not only about the animals, but the plants, birds, insects, etc. My guide always had an intelligent and intellectually stimulating answer. The accommodations at the lodge were the perfect balance between modern comfort, and a traditional African grass hut. The food was absolutely phenomenal. Both dinner and breakfast were the two best buffets I have ever had. The Tour from Cape Town to the Safari park and back was also great. The van driver was super nice and eager to share all sorts of info about the culture, history, plants, animals, oceans, mountains et cetera. We stopped at several beautiful vistas along the Garden route, and stopped by a penguin colony.

Schöne 2 Tages-Tour
Vesna_S, Feb 2020
Es war eine schöne Tour. Der Guide hat uns viele Infos gegeben und oft die Gelegenheit zum Stopp gegeben. Viele Tiere haben wir gesehen, leider gab es keine Giraffen. Eine sehr schöne Lodge! Viel Zeit zum entspannen am Pool blieb uns leider nicht, da die Abholung morgens schon mit einer Stunde Verspätung erfolgte. Die Info zum Abholungsort und Termin erfolgte ziemlich kurzfristig einen Tag vorher, was bei schwieriger Internetverbindung nicht gut planbar war.
