Inkwenkwezi may not be the biggest game reserve in South Africa, but it is certainly value for money and is big enough to keep you occupied for several days. All meals, game drives and most activities are included in the price. The valley camp tents are all private and you would not realise that anyone else was staying there, as... More

We only did a day tour but were quite happy with the experience. We've been on several safaris and to many game reserves, but we were pleasantly surprised by Inkwenkwezi. Most of all because they have some rare white lions. They're kept separate from the rest of the animals, but they seemed quite content. Honestly they were some of the... More

We went on a open 4x4 day tour booked through our cruise line. It was a great tour seeing elephants, giraffes, lions, gemsbok, impala, hartebeest, ostrich and wildebeest. They day was extremely windy so there was dust everywhere but we still had a wonderful experience with a great guide.

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
