“over all we had a very pleasant stay at the game lodge, our guide Kevin Mc Carthy was a really pleasant and very helpfull guide. Our only issues were being told to be at the park for 11am instead of 2pm, but otherwise we couldnt find fault. Pat, Pam, Ireland”

  • Byron
“A simultaneously relaxing and jam packed few days. The walking was comfortable and incorporates some amazing scenery. The guides are incredibly passionate and very keen to show you their local areas. There are plenty of highlights from just a few days, among them sundowners at Baboon point, fresh West Coast Seafood and a visit to Bird Island while all the way through there are some stunning views. The trip is tailored exactly to your needs so it all flows smoothly. I'll be back for sure!”
