Planning a trip can take a lot of research and become quite time consuming. If you are planning a trip to South Africa and are including Hlosi Game Lodge in your itinerary (and we highly recommend you do), here's a bit of research on the best ways to get to us...
To Hlosi from Port Elizabeth
Hlosi Game Lodge is just over an hour's drive from Port Elizabeth Airport. Flying into PE and hiring a car from there is probably the best time-conscious way to get to our lodge. If you have some time to spare along the way, a stop at Nanaga Farmstall comes highly recommended for some South African padkos (Afrikaans word that directly translates to 'road food' or 'food for the road').
Your flight lands quite late? Book a stay at one of Lion Roar's sister properties in Port Elizabeth:
Ibhayi Guest Lodge is a four-star rated accommodation nestled in the leafy, village atmosphere of central Walmer. Leaving the bustle of Walmer’s coffee shops, gift shops & bookshops behind you, enter a tranquil space where the simple comforts of luxurious linen and well-appointed rooms with kitchen facilities allow you to unwind at the end of a busy day with a quiet drink and a simple meal.
Singa Lodge offers a slightly more romantic stay in Port Elizabeth, near the beach and offers a luxurious, modern fusion of Eastern and African décor in their luxury or executive suites.
To Hlosi from Cape Town
A trip from Cape Town to Hlosi Game Lodge would take about 9 hours driving, excluding stops along the N2 Garden Route.
The Garden Route is a famous route along the south coast of South Africa. A roadtrip along this route is very popular for its incredible views and landscapes, and can be done in one day or broken up into several nights. Route 62 (the grey route in the above map) also offers some wonderful scenery and is a great alternative.
Just over half way along the Garden Route are Lion Roar's Robberg Beach Lodge and Redbourne Country Lodge, offering great accommodation options in Plettenberg Bay, known for its beautiful mountains, white sand and crystal blue water beaches.
However you are travelling to Hlosi Game Lodge, we wish you a successful adventure in South Africa's Cape along the way!
