Nyaru Game Lodge, Brandwag
Superb, value 'Safari Lite' for Families
Fantastic place for a family with kids, a 'safari lite' if you like. They have a tame giraffe, a hilarious pair of warthogs, enough wildlife for a good quad bike safari and an early morning nature walk, both of which we did. They have small swimming pools, good food and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful couple of days at Nyaru, and also went into Mossel Bay a couple of times to eat which was excellent too. This is NOT a Big Five Safari, but once you have the right expectations, you will love this quirky but professionally run, family Safari Lodge.

a very pleasent surprise!
Well for starters, there was a girafe present for the tour of the lodge! Honestly this lodge was the highlight of our two week trip. The safari was great the room was big and clean (every thing look new).We had a giraffe sleep next to our room (how amazing I that). There was a Meercat who greeted us at our doorstep! It felt like the lion king movie haha! Oh yeah they have two bush pigs hanging around that are also very nice! I highly RECOMMEND this place, the staff was great and the food (we had supper and breakfast) was great. Our dinner was taken right next to a pond where the animals come and drink. By far the best supper (scenery & food) of my vacation!
