We were welcomed with lovely drinks and what was referred to as a "snack" but was actually a full buffet meal. Proceeded to have a 2.5 hour game drive where we saw 4 of... More

Kwantu always provides excellent service, has knowledgeable guides and has one of the least expensive game drives in the area. The elephant interaction is very unique and definitely recommended.

We went as a group day out form the ship where we work to Kwantu as a day trip and to a man all throughly enjoyed the day. Although it possibly being the coldest, wettest day in South Africa's history,we had a great time on safari, with the rangers being brilliant, funny, welcoming, warm and importantly informative and willing to...

We visited Kwantu mainly for the elephants. On arrival we entered a very large building which was nicely decorated and maintained. There was a large restaurant which we were told was no longer in operation. The gift shop was locked up. I was aware that these elephants were not 'wild' and could be ridden but was not prepared for the... More

Up close with the Big5 unbelievable. Friendly rangers cared about showing us all they possibly could. They were very enthusiastic about it. They made our two days stay memorable. Food at the resort was also catered to our request/taste. Kids loved the experience of playing with lion cubs and witnessing life in wild so close. A great experience over all!

Had a day safari experience. Turned up and offered morning snacks before a 2 hour safari. We then visited the predator rehabilitation centre and played with Lion cubs. We were then given a brilliant lunch before being taken off to their elephant sanctuary. Great day out. Highly recommend.
