We are always in search of unique experiences around South Africa and the Western Cape and the recent visit to the African Game Lodge was one of those memorable stays that need to be documented.
The lodge is located around 45 min outside of Montagu (a very well-looked-after dirt road accessible by any car) towards Ourberg/Touwsriver. It is the most spectacular and unique route to your destination – African Game Lodge. We did doubt where we are going at some point but AGL signs every couple of kilometers were very re-assuring 🙂 So we drove enjoying the scenery and finally reach the gates of the reserve. I have said it before – totally worth the drive.
We spend there three beautiful nights and would like to share our top reasons why we think you should pick this escape for your next getaway.
