                I do an Adventure Motorcycle Tour in South Africa every year with a group of riders from the USA and The Swartberg Private Game Lodge is by far the most enjoyed stop on our tour.
                The accommodation, food, animals, the game viewing and personnel are without equal!!
                It is the high point of my South African tour every year.
                For me personally it is my yearly detox from all the daily stress that we have to live with every day.
                Thank you guys, I'll be back for more!!
                This place is fantastic! Leon, the owner, took us all over the property and we got to see all kinds of wildlife: Besbok, Bontebok, Elan, Giraffe, Impala, Jackal, Kudu, Letchwe, Nyala, Oryx, Red Hartebeest, Rietbok, Springbok, Tortoise, Waterbok, Zebra. There is one leopard but we never spotted it. Leon is extremely knowledgeable about nature and spent a lot of time telling us all about it. The staff is wonderful as well. The rooms are great and the setting is idyllic. I highly recommend this place if you love nature and the outdoors. It is also motorcycle friendly. We rode a short distance from the lodge to the beautiful Swartberg Pass.
