Fantastic and unexpected mini bush experience just outside East London. Stayed in the Tented camp which was well appointed and comfortable - wonderful private location. Boma was a good experience with excellent meals. Game drive was authentic and the white Lions a treat to observe at close quarters. All Round a good experience.

I only went to the reserve as part of a day trip and one afternoon Safari. The lunch was fantastic, with a large variety of good food. The Safari was really good. I saw a large variety of animals, and had a great time. The white lions were a highlight, and the guides were delightful. My only caveat would be... More

Inkwenkwezi was a perfect place to stay with our family (2 children, 6 and 7). The activities were great, the ranger that took ons on our tours was really well informed and nice to the children. We did the elephant interaction and ride and it was wonderful! The lions were very pretty, the scenery was unbelieveble. Great views, animals and... More

We visited Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve Safari Lodge in early January 2014. We attended a wedding ceremony and reception and stayed two nights. The venue is a fantastic wedding venue if you are planning a wedding! During the ceremony we were surprised by a visit from the elephants and their handlers, a super fantastic back drop while getting hitched ;O)... More

I spent three fantastic days and nights at Inkwenkwizi and enjoyed every minute of the experience. The two of us had our own guide for the whole duration. Luke was a mind of information on the animals and bird life and his enthusiasm was captivating. The Safari expeditions were almost non-stop and included midnight outing in the jeep and a... More

I spent one night and approximately 24 hours at Inkwenkwezi, and it was AMAZiNG. I stayed in Valley Camp, which is a very secluded luxury tent. The tent is safe, clean with few to no bugs, has a deck, great bathtub and a shower with glass panels that face the wilderness. I went on four drives in total, one being... More

We spent 1 night at the reserve. We arrived pretty late so I had to call in my personal guide. He arrived pretty quick in about 5 mins. We were loaded into a 4x4 vehicle and he guided us to the tent and afterwards to the restaurant. You really sleep in the middle of all the animals they roam freely... More

While staying in Komga, I was treated to a day trip to Inkwenkwezi by our hosts. I was able to choose activities that interested me. I chose to do a cheetah and an elephant interaction. The cheetah interaction was a little bit disappointing because the cage was small and there was little detail given about the cheetahs. I was able... More
