Great location, friendly and accommodating people. It was great to be able to drive around freely and enjoy the outdoors at our own leisure. The unit we stayed in was great, with fantastic views. The staff was very flexible and helpful with all our queries

I was blown away by the helpfulness of the staff and how they went above and beyond to accommodate us! The spa was heavenly and the therapists were friendly. The reserve was a beautiful drive and the ranger had a great knowledge of the area and animals. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary and were so happy we chose Gwahumbe Game Lodge & Spa. We only spent a night there (21 November 2014), but wish it could've been longer. The food was AMAZING - from the crumbed halloumi starter with sweet chilli sauce for dinner to the creamy mushrooms at breakfast. Inkford, the... More

Go there for peace and quiet, amazing bed and friendly staff. We went early in the week and had the entire place to ourselves. Went to a drive around reserve and saw Rhino, zebra, buck and buffallo. Cant wait to go back!

We travelled to Gwahumbe just for one night on 21 September 2014, the staff were so friendly on arrival and we were given a short tour before lunch. We had booked several treatments at the Spa which we thoroughly enjoyed, one of the best Spa experiences we have had. The rooms were nice and the food was good, big portions... More

A little out of the way, but that's what you want from the location. Beautiful views, quiet location and attentive staff. The food was good, the beds very comfortable and the view from the Serengeti room was breathtaking. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
