The Kitchen and Bathroom areas where very dirty. Shower, basin and toilet seemed to have not been cleaned for a very long time. The cottage was generally poorly maintained. Only positive is the friendly staff and a very beautiful setting of the lodge. My advice: STAY AWAY!

Despite numerous attempts to contact the reviewer as well as Tripadvisor to verify that the review was submitted by a bona fide guest, we have not received any reply from either the reviewer or Tripadvisor. We are therefor unable to verify that the reviewer actually stayed at Kwambali Riverside Lodge. We would encourage guests to be wary of unverified reviews.... More

What a wonderful time we had at the most peaceful and quiet place next to the river. The reception was good and the cottage was clean and felt like home. I'd have given it a 5 rating but for the towels and sheets that are brown. All in all we are happy. Will come back again.

Thank you for your review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are looking at replacing our stone coloured linen and towels with a more neutral colour in the near future and will keep you updated. More

Every year we select a resort for our family reunion and this year we chose Kwambali. We were not disappointed at all … you get your money’s worth – yes it is not a 5-star facility and services are limited, but for a family that will have fun irrespective, this is a pretty great option. The rates are reasonable and... More

Stayed at Kwambali Riverside Lodge over the 2015 Easter 2015 week end. Everything was fine from our check in to our departure. Nice and clean with excellent security. Close to both Numbi and Phabeni gates of the Kruger National Park. Will definitely visit again.

We stayed for two nights, booked through Groupon. I thought I got mydelf a good deal but the first disappointment came in when I noticed the same cottages were sold for a cheaper price through other booking sites. The cottage which I stayed (No 9) was smelly and dirty including the living hall and toilets. The tap water was muddy... More

A charming resort situated on the Sabie River. 12 Picturesque cottages in a beautiful garden of majestic Fever Trees. It's peaceful, with a crystal clear swimming mostly all to yourself all day. We stayed in cottage 12. This is a 6 sleeper with bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a loft with 2 single beds. Cottages are in need of some TLC,... More

Kwambali lodge is located just outside Hazyview and is 30 minutes away from the Phabeni gate of kruger national park. The lodge offers self catering cottages which can house groups of two, four and six. All the cottages overlook the Sabie river and come equipped with a fully functional kitchen and brains facilities. While the location and amenities are good,... More

We are constantly working on improving our cottages. This cottage has now undergone a complete makeover. We have added a second bathroom and fitted both bathrooms with new showers. The cottage also has a new kitchen and new furniture throughout. All the noisy pipes have also been replaced and the walls painted a more neutral colour. More

Situated next to the Sabie river, with magnificent trees lit up beautifully at night... this is truly a stunning area. Location is perfect as it is opposite from Induna Adventures and right next to Sabie Valley Coffee - both great attractions in the area. Management was very friendly, and we were especially impressed by the quick and efficient way in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while touring the area. Nice individual cottages by the river, just outside the main town and quite opposite the adventure centre which makes it very convenient if with kids. Priced reasonably, the cottages had full facilities and a pleasant owner. Don't expect 5 star, no air conditioning, limited service but if you are with family,... More
