Beautiful location, excellent and hospitable staff, nice with children and are very flexible. You do feel that they are doing their utmost to make you feel at home. I also like the way the lodge is integrated with the community and environment.

While on a Gate 1 Kenyan Safari adventure we had the pleasure of staying at the Malewa Wildlife Lodge for one night, I wish it would have been more. The property is in the preserve and there are no fences, so it is not uncommon to have wildlife roaming around the grounds. If one needs to leave their cabin after... More

We spent two wonderful days at this great quiet lodge. Walked around the park light setting to see many local animals. The sun-downer and evening game drive were experiences not to be missed. The setting, staff and accommodation were worth the rough drive into the lodge.

We were fortunate to stay at the Malewa Wildlife Lodge in February 2013. There were only 8 Albertans at the time and we were treated loyally. We were there for Valentines Night and they set up and decorated a table by the wood burning fireplace and served a fabulous dinner. Our lodges were huge and very clean and so cool... More

The rooms are all small separate buildings and are very large. We spent Christmas eve and day here and was our third stop on our safari. The staff are very personable and really accomodating. What we liked about this place was the solar power, the system used for hot water, the hot water bottles brought in to warm us in... More

Spent Nov. 6 and 7 at this lovely spot, as the 3rd stop on a 2 week safari. Manager Nassil did everything possible to ensure our stay was perfect. All the cabins were full, so we were lucky enough to be lodged in the honeymoon cabin, complete with claw bathtub on the deck. We could hear the hippos in the... More

Spent a weekend at the lodge with some colleagues. Absolutely enjoyable. It is quiet, secluded and simply a perfect place to do nothing at all... or perhaps a light game drive or walk (few real predators in the area). Rooms were overly large with nice decor. Showers were amazing (large, spacious, great temperature, bath products). Staff were friendly and attentive.... More

We were a party of 8 traveling throughout Africa and our journey started at Malewa Lodge. What a relaxing, peaceful way to start. The staff were so friendly and welcoming particularly the host. It is the most beautiful setting, wonderful food, an opportunity to get up close with the animals and a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We had the privilege of... More

Sitting down to write this review, I am honestly at a loss for words. We have had the most amazing stay at Malewa River Lodge. The staff made us feel incredibly welcome and relaxed. The guide who took us on both of our River walks was incredibly informative and enthusiastic, and went out of his way to make sure we... More
