Game Lodges are mainly used by tourists on wildlife safaris, and are typically located in or near national parks or game reserves.

Game Lodge

Nature / Game Lodges: A Wilderness / Nature / Game Lodge (incl. Private Nature Reserves) is a formal accommodation facility providing prescribed services, situated in natural surroundings beyond that of an immediate garden area. Generally speaking these establishments are located in a natural setting.
A Wilderness / Nature / Game Lodge will usually have a scenic or natural views e.g.: mountain view , Sea views, Bushveld Views, water view, rural outlook, or natural bush setting offering some guided or unguided Safari Activity such as Hikes, Game Drives, Fishing, Walking, Boat Cruises, Cycling, Horseback, Birding, Canoeing etc.
Where a Game Lodge has predators roaming freely, an escort / guide should be available to escort guests to and from the accommodation, parking areas, public areas or set-off points for safari.

Game / Nature / Wilderness Lodge should furthermore have guides registered with The Field Guides Association of Southern Africa (FGASA). FGASA aims to promote a culture of professional guiding. This is based on a strong ethical well-informed, safety conscious approach that provides the visitor to Southern Africa with a pleasant as well as a memorable experience. Reserve your stay.
