Fairy Glen is committed to improving the reserve as well as your experience. Fairy Glen is Cape Town's closest mostly free-roaming Big 5 game reserve. Fairy Glen is a must see if you visit Cape Town and want to see our Big 5. At Fairy Glen as a Game Lodge you will experience a very intimate encounter. This doesn't mean you go up and pet the Animals – it means you will get close – so close that you will, without doubt, get great photos.

Fairy Glen, a little piece of heaven, is a family owned business just over an hour from Cape Town, and is set at the foot of the famous Brandwacht Mountains, in a peaceful rustic environment surrounded by Cape Fynbos and waterfalls.
