We stayed during 4 nights at this lodge in order to combine pleasure and nature. We picked the perfect place. We were welcomed warmly by Debbie and Jacques at arrival. We stayed in the tent provided with all comfort you need. The open air bathroom is great. We immediately made our first game drive, accompanied by Jacques and the tracker... More

Stayed for 2 nights as we slept in 1 of the luxury tents. In one word it was awesome. It's a small lodge but has everything you want during such a stay. The tents are very nice and have a separate bathroom section behind it. There is electricity and you're provided with water for coffee and tea. Plenty of space... More

From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed. The staff of Debbie,(administrative) and rangers Alister and Mike where there to help with my bag and offer me a hot towel and a beverage. I was shown to a chalet with a lovely porch and thatched roof, it was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable stocked with coffee and tea. There are... More

Four of us went. Just the right amount of spoiling with out making you feel out of touch with your beautiful surroundings. We made up a wish list of what we wanted to see and low and behold we saw them all. The people were amazing, accommodating, polite,nothing was too much trouble. The food was awesome with animal viewing while... More

What a place! Saw all of the big five, more than once, added bonus was maximum 2 vehicles per viewing, so getting really close to the animals and ability to take photos was brilliant. Knowledgeable guides, friendly staff, delicious food. Accommodation was comfortable. Took our 10 year old and was suitable, as long as your child is sensible and follows... More

We had a wonderfull time thanks to the great welcoming team of Kwa Mbili. We saw almost all the wild animals present at the park, most of them terribly nearby, which was the most amazing thing of the park. Special thanks to Tsepo, Mike, Allister, Edward and Loveness for giving us really a very special time. Frank and Laurien The... More

This is a small game reserve providing an outstanding big five game experience for its guests. One cannot say enough about the quality of the knowledge shared by the rangers regarding the animals. The accommodation was very comfortable and the food exceptionally good. Our party of 8 rated the experience 5 star in every respect.

The safaris were absolutely fantastic, which is the main thing here of course. Regarding accommodation, two of us stayed in a tent, which we could not leave during the nights because of the wild animals. Felt almost like being in prison, as we had no way to contact the reception during the night. Nice and clean tent. Felt safe despite... More
