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

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.

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

It was my second visit to Kwambali, the first in May 2013 was thoroughly enjoyable, so we booked there again for a weekend in July 2014. We were a group of ten people and specifically booked the riverside cottage (6 sleeper) and a 4 sleeper next to it. We stayed in Riverside cottage the last time and its layout was... More

We bought a two night stay on groupon and it was the best investment ever! Quiet, comfortable, clean and very friendly service. The accommodation is nice and spacious self catering units with everything you need supplied. We stayed in a unit that accommodates 4 people and it was perfect. Will most definitely go again!

Our family has been going to Kwambali Riverside Lodge many times over the last 11 years. It is truly a spot of paradise to us. We love the setting next to the Sabie River & the feel of the thatched roof lodges. The more recent owners have done so many lovely improvements to the grounds & the lodges. The owners... More

I was on a business trip. Stayed in this property for 8 days. No words to describe the beautiful locale. Situated on the sabie riverside surrounded with lots of trees and a small citrus garden, an awesome lodge but yhe catch is it is a self catering. Friendly and very helpful owner. Fully secured with round the clock security. There... More
