Twitchers or bird watchers will be spoilt for choice by the abundance of resident feathered creatures. Enjoy bird watching while out on safari or from the comfort of your private viewing deck. Colourful sunbirds and sugarbirds are attracted to the fynbos and Aloes that abound. Visit our bird hide to enjoy the nest making antics of the red and yellow bishop with their colourful display or take a leisurely stroll along our bird walking trail where our head guide and keen birder has posted colourful images with information about the various birds one can expect to find along the walk. Our game reserve borders the Overberg District where more than half of the remaining population of the threatened Blue Crane reside so expect to witness these graceful birds in flight and hear their distinctive loud call.

Over 150 species has been sighted on our game reserve. Download our bird list here.

Wildlife on our game reserve
Started in 1999 the wildlife reintroduction has seen the return of elephant, white rhino, lion and buffalo to the area. Antelope such as the Cape Eland, kudu, black wildebeest, zebra, springbok and gemsbok are now at home on the grassy plains. Smaller resident mammals such as the shy Cape Fox, bushbuck, caracal, bat eared fox, duiker and the elusive Cape Mountain leopard are a rare treat to spot on safari.

Garden Route Game Lodge was the first reserve in the Western Cape to reintroduce cheetah in 2007 and through our co-operation with the Endangered Wildlife Trust we have played a role in increasing the meta population of this threatened species in South Africa.

Fynbos and Aloes
Fynbos is the natural shrubland or heathland (habitat) vegetation occurring in a small belt of the Western Cape of South Africa, mainly in winter rainfall coastal and mountainous areas with a Mediterranean climate.

The fynbos ecoregion is within the Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub biome.

Fynbos is home to an amazing diversity of plant species including many members of the Protea Family, Heath family,and Reed family of restios. The nearby town Albertinia is the heart of the thatching reed business which makes use of the female restio plant.

Aloes such as the Cape Aloe or Aloe Ferox occur in abundance and are still sustainably harvested or “tapped” for their healing characteristics using the same method traditional method of the Bushman.
From the deadly black mamba to the African rock python, Reptile Encounters at Garden Route Game Lodge is home to 28 different snake species, Nile crocodiles, tortoises and terrapins. The collection of snakes includes most local species one would encounter in South Africa as well as some exotic species. The guided tour will allow you a chance to handle some of the non venomous snakes if you are brave enough including the African python, corn snake, ball python, milk snake and albino burmese python, great for photo opportunities.
