The Garden Route Game Lodge is roughly a 4 hour drive with relevant stops for bathroom breaks & to stretch legs if needs be. We drive along the N2 through the Overberg region of the Western Cape.
Although check in is at 2pm, you are welcome to arrive earlier and enjoy a light lunch or refreshment while taking in the views of the game reserve. Once you have checked in to your room you may want to stretch your legs and take time to explore the surrounds, relax by the pool or on your own private deck.
