horrendous! Kwantu displayss unethical practices, cruel and disgusting. please do not support them. they have forced the breeding of lions with the purpose of attracting volunteers, but are not taking good care of the animals, they also sell lions, possibly to hunting reserves.

We visited for a day trip and didn't regret it. The guide was knowledgeable and considerate, and put all his efforts to try and find all the animals for us. We were lucky to get to hang out with the females on the lion pride and even got to see the rhynos! The price was much better than most Game... More

I was a bit unsure of this experience when I booked it as previous reviews haven't been great. However, I am so glad I did. Despite the organisation seeming poor and disorganised at first once we got to Kwantu Private Game Reserve everything else was well organised. I spent the first few days helping out around the reserve with chores,... More

I was at Kwantu for 3 days around 2 weeks ago with two friends. What really made the experience was the staff who all seemed to enjoy their job! Benjamin was very friendly the whole time we were there. Musa, who served us at our meals, Innocence our game driver and Freedom who took us round the Predator Park. It... More

Had a special trip to Kwantu Game Reserve and Elephant Sanctuary. Its one of those rare places where there is such alot to do in a day that the day ends up feeling 3 days long at bed time. Upon arrival breakfast was promptly served followed by a 2hr game drive, words can't describe the experience of seeing so many... More

Worst 5 star experience in my life. I believe they paid someone off for this rating. The dinning room, lounge was filthy. Th toilets were disgusting. No paper towels, no air dryers. Only a dirty towel. 5 star? The only pleasant thing was the friendly staff. The lack of maintenance was clearly visible from the time we entered to the... More

We visited kwantu for a game drive while on holiday in PE. Was pleasantly surprised at how affordable the amount was considering it's a private reserve. 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
