We stayed at the Idube Game Reserve in late February. Within two trips out we had seen all the Big 5 and then some. We got amazing close up looks to a pride of lions, cheetahs and a Rhino family. The views were simply once in a lifetime. We even had a visit by an elephant to the back of... More

We just returned from Idube after a 4 night/5 day visit and I have to say it was amazing. We are a family of 4 (2 15 yr. old boys) and we loved it. The staff was friendly and took care of whatever we needed. The real attraction here is the safari. The rangers and trackers are top notch and... More

A lovely homely atmosphere with very upmarket and comfortable accommodation at a comparatively affordable price. The access to viewing the big 5 in this reserve is unmatched anywhere! The rangers and trackers are tremendously knowledgeable and do all they can to keep their customers happy. Good food, good service by all the lodge staff is a further bonus! We had... More

Love everything! It's Sally's home and mine as well. IDUBE is in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve within the Greater Kruger Park, home of the Big Five and all the Small Five's and you can find everything and more here

This is my first review ( I'm a lazy internet user) but I made an exeption for this fantastic place. I was at the Idube for two nights a few days ago with my wife and my 9 years old son and we enjoyed everything we found there. The ranger Andries has a great skill for sightings and is very... More

Big five ticked off on the first drive, stunning work by Rob the Ranger and tracker Ron, aka "The dream team". They continued to deliver, under difficult circumstances, due to soggy off road conditions, and being unable to traverse the northern part of the reserve, as the river was in full flow. My photos and videos are a testament to... More

Excellent Leopard sightings and a super friendly team added to my time at iDube (The food was not bad) ... The rooms and lodge seem to be overdue for a refurb, the old fashioned face brick style didn't appeal to me. It's obvious that many people love iDube and its warm staff ... Perhaps a comparatively affordable travel option within... More

Great location for seeing all the big five in a jeep or walking, day or night time. We saw an elephant after she had given birth and a Leapard in camp after having killed an Nyala.The Ranger was very informative and it was a great experience being there. The only thing to remember is to lock away all your vauables... More

It is my 1st safari. Stayed at the lodge for 5 days, seen all animal including a fight between male/female lion in less than 20 feet. The ranger, Okkur (apologize if I mis-spell) is awesome as well as the tracker Titus. Both of them are very professional and friendly. Food and accomodation is great as already mentioned a lot here.... More
