Situated between the Outeniqua Mountains and Mossel Bay in the Wester Cape, Garden Route Safari Camp offers boutique-style accommodation in a malaria-free safari area.
Garden Route Safari Camp accommodates all kinds of travellers, be it family, friends or couples, in comfortable tent-style suites which all come with private decks overlooking the reserve.
The lodge features a swimming pool, a traditional outdoor boma, a bar, and the Giraffe Valley Restaurant serving up homemade favourites with a local twist.
Guided game drives will bring you closer to wild animals like lions, giraffes, buffalos, wildebeests, and a great abundance of antelope, and birds (185 species recorded here).
As an extra bonus, Garden Route Safari Camp is set on a malaria-free private game reserve making it ideal for families travelling with kids over four years old.
The lodge is located just 20 minutes drive from George Airport and four hours drive from Cape Town, making it possible to get to in a day.
As the name clearly describes, Garden Route Sarafi Camp will reward you with an authentic safari experience during your holiday along the Garden Route.
Nestled between the mountains and the coastline, just a few hours’ drive from Cape Town, it proves that you don’t have to venture all the way to the Kruger to experience South Africa’s wild game. What makes this region of the country even more appealing, is that it is completely malaria-free, making it a lot safer for travelling families.
Game drives depart in the early morning and late afternoon when the temperature is cooler and the animals are most active within the reserve. Bush walks are also available and during these experiences, you can get even closer to a variety of animals and birds whilst learning about the local fynbos found only within this region of the country.
Back at camp, the main areas like the outdoor boma and bar offer a warm and congenial atmosphere where you can very easily strike up a few interesting convos with other like-minded travellers. The pool is a great place to spend the afternoon with the kids cooling off and when you’d prefer a bit of quiet time, you can easily slip off to your room where a private balcony awaits.
What’s also great about Garden Route Safari Camp is that while you’re immersed in nature, you’re not completely removed from everything else - the coastal town of Mossel Bay is just 20 km away via roads that are paved and easy to navigate.
