Mawande met us outside of our apartment. I was expecting us to be part of a party, but it was a private journey of over 200 miles, stopping at Hermanus, where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic.
Before I talk about Garden Lodge, I must mention Mawande. I have never before had a driver who could become such a friend on a journey - professional, informative, helpful but also interested and engaged. He is unquestionably the best guide that we have ever enjoyed on our travels,
Garden Lodge was a superb location and our visit included 2 x safaris, one evening and one early morning, an evening meal and breakfast. We saw lions, cheetahs, buffalo, rhino, elephants and a host of local wildlife - all knowledgably described by our host. The Hippo's were hiding in reeds and couldnt be seen.
All staff including reception, waiting, bar and especially our safari guide were fantastic and the facilities are superb.
Mawande was the person that made the long journey so interesting as we learnt about his life. A wonderful companion. We asked to go straight home after the safari.
I cannot recommend this experience highly enough

This is a wonderful trip.
Our guide, Benjamin, was brilliant. He was knowledgeable, amusing, and tireless in ensuring we were happy and saw all we wanted to see (and photograph!)
There is so much to take in during the two day trip, it takes a while for everything to settle and you remember it all.
Perhaps my favourite part was the meeting of the two oceans, at Cape Aghulas and the 3D sculpture of Africa at the lands end. Beautiful, and unexpected. The ‘safari’ and lodge were a delight.
We would happily recommend this as an excellent introduction to the Western Cape.
Many thanks to Benjamin for such a great experience.

We were a wedding party of 11, mostly from the UK, who wanted to do the Garden Route and experience a game drive with the opportunity to see the big 5 within their limited time constraints. This 2 day tour gave us everything we wanted, including Benjamin, their great driver and guide. He made everything so easy for us, stopping at tried and trusted venues for lunch and rest stops.
During the drive he gave us lots of local information about the places we visited, and was happy to answer our questions.
The Lodge was very good, and the game drives provided us with the opportunity to see all of the animals expected.
All in all a wonderful trip.
Thank you Benjamin and Bokbus!

We had the best weekendtrip to the Garden Route Game Lodge. Our driver, Mawande was very friendly and always punctual. During the cardrive he told us many interesting things about the story of southafrica and all the little towns and villages we went through- we could reall learn alot. The Lodge was beautiful, the food was amazing and the gamedrives were stunning. We can absolutly recommend the whole trip and ofcourse especially Mawande, as a driver!

We booked this tour as a family.. two adults, a 17 year old and an 8 year old. We enjoyed everything about this tour .. we saw elephants, lions, cheetahs, hippos, wilderbeast, antelope, ostriches, birds, mongoose and other species. Our tour guide was Natasha (spelled differently) and she was really amazing. We even had a wine and beer break which really relaxed us all. It was fun. The food at the lodge was really good and the beds/huts were comfortable. It was raining the first night so we missed the Bon fire . I’ve been on safaris before but my children have not so this was a great opportunity for all of us.

Also our driver Benjamin was great. He explained everything !! We stopped to see penguins and looked for whales on the way back. It was a long drive but we made several pit stops.

Recommendation…. Take a pillow for the van ride .. pretty long

This tour started on a sour note when I was advised that they didn't have any additional passengers the day I was scheduled to go, and I was asked if I had the availability to reschedule. I didn't, so they went out of their way to arrange for a private driver. It takes about 6-7 hours to get there, so I figured that, without a group of people to talk to, the drive alone would be very boring. Man, was I wrong. My driver, Benjamin, was the most amazing travel companion. He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. He made the long drive worth it.

The safari experience was also outstanding. My guide was very well trained and answered every imaginable question. The lodge was comfortable, but small. I had a single standard room. Dinner was quite good as was breakfast. Decent internet as well.

Overall, an excellent experience and worth doing if you only have a limited amount of time in Cape Town.

Hi Matthew Thank you for your valued feedback. I must start by apologizing for the sour note your tour started with, unfortunately with the covid-19 pandemic ,the situation has become difficult to manage with as a result are now faced with a situation to have to turn down a 1 person booking and adjusting our minimum numbers to at least two people. After deliberations with you on re-scheduling and you were not able to, I am pleased in the end we were able to make plans and arrange for you to still do the tour on your own as you had limited time in SA. I am further pleased to hear our award winning guide Benjamin was able to look after you, keep you informed ,entertained and engaged during the tour. While yours was an accidental private tour due to no one else booking on the day, we do offer private tours and our guides are well versed in private tours. Thank you again for the feedback and your recommendation. Kind regards Ntsiko

This was an excellent tour and exceed the value for money. The journey to the destination itself was a sight to see! Great to see the Big 5 albeit the lions are hard to spot but all in all a great tour company that is worth your time and money. Highly recommend !

An awesome tour ! You absolutely need to do it if you are in Cape Town or not far. You will be able to see most of the emblematic animals of South Africa.
Our guide was Devon, he is friendly and passionated, a real professional.
The price is totally abordable.
Great and beautiful moment guaranted, you’re not close to forget.

We were picked up on time from our hotel at the V&A by a minibus the party consisted of 9 passengers from 4 different countries and Benjamin our driver. We made our way out of Cape Town and after a stop for coffee travelled along the coast with great views to Bettys Bay to see the penguins. The penguins were inches away from us as we walked along a boardwalk through the rocks. We them moved on to Hermanus Bay where we had an opportunity to and have breakfast and look at some of the seafront gift shops. There were no whales on view at this time as it was late in the season. We then headed off to the Safari lodge which was a reasonable drive away but Ben stopped regularly for a refreshment break and gave us a commentary on the places we passed.
The Garden Route Lodge was excellent and I wish we could have stayed 2 days. We checked in and after taking our bags to the fantastic lodge went to the pool for a swim and a few beers. We then went on our evening safari and saw plenty of animals very close up. The facility is in my opinion a cross between a wild life park and a natural habitat as all animals hunt and feed themselves with the exception of the lions and Elephants. As the Lions don’t hunt you can get up close relatively safely. Our safari finished with beer wine and snacks amongst the trees. After a few beers around an open camp fire we went for a buffet dinner which had a great choice for meat eaters but could have done with more vegetarian options.
The next day started with refreshments before our morning safari to see the animals we missed the day before. After this we had a buffet breakfast then checked out.
We returned along the inbound route until turning off to Cape of Colours the southernmost part of Africa which had lots of photo opportunities, we then stopped for lunch in a quaint Dutch style café before heading back to Cape Town arriving late afternoon.
Benjamin was an excellent driver and made sure we stopped when we wanted any food or a comfort break He knew a lot about the route and the places we visited. The trip was not only an excellent Safari but an opportunity to see more of South Africa with a knowledgeable guide and I am glad we added it to our Cape Town Itinerary.

Not a nice group of people to do the experience with. Travelling for 5 hours (each way) at a minimum in a cramped van is pure torture. Guide needs to be more personable and able to bring people together. The safari is nice but definitely not worth the trouble getting there.

Dear Dirani Thank you for choosing Bokbus Tours and for you valued feedback. The nature of group tours is anyone can book and at times it may be people who do not click or get along, while our guides are trained and experienced in creating a friendly spaces during our tours they're mindful not be a nuisance or to impose on people. I am sorry you found the journey to be torture, we have packaged the tour in such a way there are plenty of comfort stops , including the stops at The penguins in Betty's Bay as well as the Whale Watching(Seasonal) in Hermanus on the way up these stops were carefully selected to minimize discomfort on the 4 hours trip to the Game lodge. We are pleased to hear you found the safari be nice and sorry you found the in between stops like the Most Southern tip of Africa( Cape Agulhas) to not be worth it. Again thank you for your valued feedback , we appreciate it. Kind regards Ntsiko
