The weather was quite pleasant in the Pilanesberg area. This is a sister Lodge to Bakubung Game Lodge which we visited and enjoyed last year same time. The general property is well looked after. The check-in and welcome was acceptible, having been to Bakubung recently I expected the same quality of the room - however was dissapointed - this room... More

Very friendly staff quite knowledgeable. Room was way on one end but very clean-comfortable bed. In-ground trampoline,minigolf, and rock wall tennis courts all added to things to do but of course safari-game drives were the real draw. All guides were very easy to understand-courtious and kept in touch with each other in case something exceptional was spotted. Small pullouts with... More

My husband and I have just returned from the most amazing week at Kwa Maritane. The minute one arrives at your destination you automatically feel one with nature. Just driving up the hill you can see buck, wildebeest and sometimes the odd elephant in the distance. The staff from the gate to management are all so happy to receive their... More

Very big hotel, like a factory. Decent food and wine. Comfortable sleep. Safari bus is for 25 people! Could not even hear properly what guide was saying. Location is not the best for the safari as it takes 30 min to drive away from the boarder of Pilanesberg park and highway. Nearby to Sun city.

All in all it is a nice luxurious lodge. On arrival at reception the staff did not tell us all we needed to know about the lodge and we were constantly returning to the reception to ask queries. We purchased a package which included game drives and meals for the whole weekend. At the end of our stay we were... More

I went on their game drive morning and evening but i didnt stay in the hotel though. They arranged a shuttle bus to take me from my hotel nearby and send me back. We were lucky in morning to spot all big five.. Our guide emma was knowledgable. Now after seeing the news about the leopard attack i think she... More

Kwa Maritane continues to be an outstanding hotel. Excellent service levels from warm and friendly staff make it a very enjoyable place to stay. I stayed this time in one of the executive rooms, which are very well furnished and equipped. Most also have either a terrace or a balcony. The food is still f a very high quality.

Went here with my family during a week stay in Pretoria to experience a game drive and hopefully see some wild animals during our first (and so far only) visit to South Africa. The rooms were nice and the dinner and breakfast was really good. There were also some playgrounds on the premises that our kid could play in which... More

Prime goal of our trip was to provide our granddaughter the opportunity to experience the game park. The accommodation was very average. The hotel reception staff were not at all friendly and did not show any interest in us, as guests. The vacation package that we selected included breakfast and dinner with a game drive, every day. The food was... More
