About Nyaru Game Lodge
Situated in a malaria-free area on South Africa's picturesque Garden Route, Nyaru Game Lodge nestles between the Outeniqua Mountains and surrounding beaches.
Nyaru Game Lodge is strategically situated in the heart of the Garden Route, four hours drive from Cape Town and 30 minutes drive from the George Airport. Nyaru Game Lodge is the perfect accommodation for guests traveling the Western Cape looking for adventure.
The thatched chalet accommodation is right in the middle of the reserve. Accommodation consists of one bedroom or family two bedroom chalets. There are romantic ostrich egg lamps and candles to create that real rustic bush atmosphere.
Private patios with mountain or pool views are featured in all chalets. Each chalet is decorated with rich fabrics and follows an African flavor that is clean, simple and elegant.
The central focus of the lodge is the thatched African restaurant with seating for up to 80 people with licensed bar, lounge and dining facilities. The restaurant is a picturesque venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests will enjoy traditional dishes like ostrich neck stew and kudu casserole, a light curry bobotie or a rich venison pie which combines the deep rich taste of venison with red wine and redcurrant jelly. Mouth watering desserts like the Marula Mamba, Malva Pudding with custard or the chocolate volcano are temptations to feast on all day long.
Traditional South African meals are prepared and Nyaru invites their guests to sip their drinks on the deck while relaxing to the sounds and sight of the wildlife and bush, before either moving inside for their meal, or being served on the deck area around a crackling fire. As the fire and company draw you closer, you’ll realize that the important things in life are priceless. We are fully licensed and have a great selection of South Africa’s best wines.
