The main reason for visiting a game reserve is to watch animals, and Fairy Glen is a great destination for that. Our game ranger was very knowledgeable, and frequently stopped to give us more information on the animals, and was always ready to answer any questions. Another reason for visiting a game reserve is to get away from the city,...

This game reserve does not deserve your money or your time. Although it has the benefit of being close to Cape Town, it is like visiting a zoo. After many positive game reserve experiences, I had tears in my eyes throughout the game drive and felt sick by the end from what I saw. The animals do not have enough...

The accommodation here was poor. Tiles missing on the floor, not very clean and no shampoo etc supplied. Food mediocre at very best. Very disappointing. We could not recommend it. It was probably nice 15 years ago but nothing done to the place since. A disappointing trip on the accommodation front however the tour guide and drive were good.

Had a really good day visiting with friends but there were obvious flaws. The website is terrible, the property tired and old and the inclusive lunch was bad. That said we really enjoyed the 'safari' drive. Needs a lot of work but still worth a visit if you can't get to a larger park.

A very special place close to Cape Town - discover a hidden gem. A wonderful experience which I will recommend to locals and overseas guests. It is not a National Park, where the game roam in the distance and you can witness a lion kill. This is different and in many ways so much better - To make the most...

We went here a few years back for a day trip. We drove ourselves from Capetown through Beautiful countryside and really enjoyed it! As it was quiet, we were able to get extremely close to the Lions (see photos ... no zoom!!) and found the staff and guide very friendly! Don't expect a full safari and you won't be disappointed!!...

We had an amazing stay at Fairy Glen! The accomodation looked promising. Unfortunately we could not stay there overnight! The service was great, the lunch was very extensive and good and the safari was interesting. The ranger told us a lot about the animals and we had a nice tour! I would like to visit the place again and than...

We visited the park in the in April 2016. We had several issues to what was a pretty poor stay. On arrival we booked 3 lodges and were only allocated 2. There was a clear divide between housekeeping staff and front of house who seemed to blame each other for the problem. This problem was resolved and we were given...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fairy Glen Safaris, a family owned business about a hour from Cape Town is set at the foot of the world famous Brandwacht Mountains. It was the cherised dream of the latest owner, Piet de Jager to transform the land into a big 5 game reserve, which was eventually realised through his commitment and dedication over the years. Fairy Glen's name is derived from the dragon fly who used to fly over the Glen (Valley) and was so big, it resembled Fairies. ... more   less
