What Our Clients Say
We had an overnight stay, the first day we did a walk up the mountain it was fantastic then we went back to the lodge and had an evening meal and drinks, the food was fab and the drinks even better, our cabin was lovely very comfortable and clean, the next day we had a Safari and it was great, Denis was a fantastic guide and we loved would go back anytime.
We were driving the garden route and had a day (and night) at Fairy Glen. We had a great time getting up close and learning more about the animals. All of the rangers were friendly and very passionate over their work. The story of the rhinos was extremely poignant and one I will never forget. The buffet dinner was very pleasant and accommodation suitable for a fun time at a safari
We visit Fairy Glen last weekend, and wow i must say this place beautiful and a real jewel in the Western Cape. Not far from Cape Town, me and my friends from overseas decided to visit. Not only a warm welcome and pleasant chalet, but with an Safari atmosfere to the lodge did we think wow here we going to enjoy ourselves. And we did. All the meals and nature walk in the mountain was out of this world!

Everyone knows what they do all the rangers are fantastic with huge knowledge on all animals with fuana and flora. With this experience i would really like people to see this place. See you soon and thanking you Fairy Glen once again for all the awesome hospitalility.
My Dad, my brother and I were here for an over night stay in February and we could not have been happier. We paid €165 a head and that included a guided walk around the immediate area the night of arrival, a lovely as much as you could eat buffet dinner, buffet breakfast, the guided safari with Chantelle (who was also our guide) followed by a lovely buffet lunch. The staff were wonderful and friendly and my Dad was given a private chalet of his own on arrival which he was delighted with. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough for value for money and staff who have a love of their surroundings and pass that on to the guest. Thank you Fairy Glen!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for two nights in one of the chalets, apart from the storm on the first night and the power cuts. Pack a torch when you go as it is extremely dark when the power goes out. Deon our Ranger was amazing, he made our stay exceptional. The nature walk to the dam on the first evening was great and we saw a family of baboons watching us. Dinner that night in the lodge by candlelight was as lovely as the food. Our tours on the truck were a lot of fun and we got up very close and personal with the rhinos, lions, zebras, buffalo, ostriches, gazelles and antelopes. The elephants were separate from the other animals but we still got very close to them. We learnt a lot about South Africa and all of the animals from Deon, and Higgins and Lady the two rhino that had their horns poached will always be in our hearts. We made the most of every minute and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Room Tip: The view from the chalets is wonderful. A swing seat on the porch and steps up the side to a viewin...
