In a world where service is so rare it should be a superpower, this game lodge excels. Comfortable, beautiful, quite. Amazing food. We are vegetarians and they went out of their way to accommodate us. We felt really special.
When planning out trip to Johannesburg I decided to look at places situated either before or after Colesberg as I would like to experience something different. This is really a lovely lodge and the drive to the lodge was awesome at it was unknown territory that we have never explored before. The service and the lodge is out of this world. Pity we only spent the night as I think a longer stay would have been quite the experience. Thank you for the experience, I would definitely recommend staying at this Game Lodge.
