“Stunning setting, warm hospitality, great food.”

Stunning setting against the dramatic Swartberg Mountains. Their website completely understates it.

Hosts were a very personable and friendly young couple with whom one felt completely at home. The food was exceptional and the rooms spacious and comfortable.

The Lodge itself has the peace and calm of an old karoo farmhouse. Nicely secluded and off the main track. Cannot accommodate too many guests at once, so a very "personal" feel to the stay.

Lots of different antelope to see, a few giraffe and the threatened Cape Mountain Zebra. At this time of the year the birdlife was abundant. Several breeding pairs of blue cranes with chicks were a highlight. Would recommend taking binoculars.

Don't expect to see the big five. No visible predators. Game viewing would be regarded as too "tame" by some. Game drive vehicle offered great photographic opportunities nevertheless. Some other guest with children made good use of the available quad bikes for their own game drives. I took the opportunity to walk for miles which is completely safe (but the game is more approachable from the vehicles for some reason).

Good use made of the swimming pool. Difficult to believe that the mountains just above the Lodge have snow on them in winter. The many aloes in the veld apparently also only flower in winter.

If you are looking for a very relaxing break in a typical Little Karoo setting with every creature comfort attended to, Swartberg Private Game Lodge can be highly recommended.

Management Response

Swartberg Private Game Lodge is unfortunately no longer available as a hosted and catered holiday destination. However, the property is now available as a stunning holiday rental property. It is serviced daily, and offers a superb getaway, in a spectacular environment, and is ideal for special family holidays.
