About Us

My Wife, June Wilson started the Grey Goose Game Lodge in 1994 after we moved to Newcastle in 1988 with our three small children.
The farm then, and everything on it had been plundered, eroded and rusted – no electricity, no piped water, no sewage facility and one rutted dirt road, only passible after rain by 4 x 4 vehicles.
June’s love and respect for all people and nature made way for the introduction of game and the building of her first 6 rooms (rooms 1 – 6) in 1994.
June managed the Lodge enthusiastically and proudly, providing her guests with the best home cooked meals from her own kitchen. Then slowly but surely the expansions started, first a small breakfast room, then a tiny kitchen, then 6 more rooms, then a reception and so forth. With the expansion my Wife got a management team to assist with the current running of the Lodge.My Wife is now 73 years old and retired but our lives at the Lodge with our one son, Alan, who manages the Game farm and is a commercial helicopter pilot and instructor has been absolutely fantastic. The Lodge has turned into more than we ever imagined it could be.Like the phoenix rising from ash, June has erected a Lodge which beauty, safety and tranquillity is almost legendary.
Every bird, bunny, flower, tree – every springbok, zebra is treasured.Our insistence on healthy life styles is clearly evident with our “in house” running / walking club over 5 km.
Spectacular sunsets are displayed over the Lodges Western Drakensberg horizon.
Mankind’s shocking lifestyle and our callous disregard for Gods nature, sadden her tremendously and have motivated the Grey Goose to provide a small paradise and refuge for the weary at heart.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.

– Dr Brian Wilson
