Wildlife

The GardenRoute Game Lodge was started in 1999 as an ambitious project to restore an area of once degraded farmland to its former glory and stock it with game that previously occurred there. With the assistance of Dr Ken Coetzee of Conservation Management Services, a scientific study was conducted with the emphasis on sustainable utilization, long term conservation of the remaining natural habitats and the rehabilitation of already degraded lands. Once completed, scientific calculations were used to determine the carrying capacity of the reserve and the restocking program could begin. Today a large variety of wildlife including the BIG 5 are once more at home in this private game reserve.
