Stayed two nights with my family in Nyaru Game lodge and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Had initial correspondence with Ruan who was very prompt in answering all my queries. However when we visited the lodge, Ruan was away but his mother El Mary (hope I got that name right) was there and she couldn’t have been more nicer. We booked a two bed room family chalet but after seeing my mother in law would have difficulties in climbing up and down the stairs, El Mary offered her another vacant single room chalet free of charge which was a very nice gesture.
The rooms and the lodge including the pool were maintained very well and the whole place had a nice soothing/relaxing atmosphere. We did one game drive on 4 X 4 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Highlight was taking a bend and encountering the Rhino (Fabian).
We also had dinner one night in the Game lodge and it was definitely one of the best meals we have had in our 11 day trip in South Africa. So if you are staying in the lodge, I would definitely urge you to try out their dinner at least for one night.
All in all it was a memorable two-night stay and it is a place where we wish we had spent more days. If you are travelling along the garden route (whether as a couple or with family) and looking for a game lodge to stay, look no further than Nyaru Game lodge.
