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.

We had an absolutely lovely time in the self catering unit. Everything you needed in the kitchen right to the stunning view from the room!!!! Service was stunning and the sundowners amazing! The loo with a view too :-)

Staff very friendly and helpful. Meals below average. Breakfast very greasy. Shower in Serengeti 1 not working properly. Shower door stuck, water not draining and shower head faulty. The drive through the park was a bit hair raising at times, most roads definitely for 4x4 only. Saw very few animals. Bar and lounge area very nice.

Gwahumbe is tops ! Great Staff and perfect routes to follow. Wildlife is brilliant. I have been taking guests to Gwahumbe from Germany, Great Britian, United States, China, New Zealand, Brazil and Russia for many years now and only get smiles as they really enjoyed themselves. World Class destination for sure. The comments in the visitors book say it all.

As soon as I arrived at Gwahumbe, I felt welcome. I stayed in Serangeti. The service was top notch, the room spacious and beautifully designed. The Team there (bar, reception and restaurant) have clearly made sure that their service quality is very high. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. Dinner was simple - although a little uninspired - but still... More

I worked abroad & recently returned to South Africa & booked a romantic get-away with my partner at Gwahumbe. I must say we felt utterly disappointed from the first day & very much for the rest of the stay. Whilst the staff were friendly, the attention to detail was lacking in every sense of the way as well as listening... More

Most enjoyable and wonderful experience at Gwahumbe. We loved everything about it, from the beautiful scenary, to the stunning rooms, delicious food, exciting game drive, highlight was being footsteps away from the Rhino and most importantly the warm welcome and hospitality from the staff. Special thanks to Sarah for the superb service. The Game drive with Daniel was beyond our... More

Had a wonderful and relaxing time at the resort celebrating 19 wonderful years of marriage.One of the highlights was being chased by the friendly rhino while taking a hike through the reserve (fortunately we got away by hiding in a donga). We also came across a group of Giraffe's while riding the MTB trails down to the hippo pools, what... More

Spend a few hours at Gwahumbe for the game drive, was absolutely wonderful. Professional and friendly and what an incredible experience. Our game ranger was knowledgable and accomodating. I would recommend this game drive to anyone with a little sense of adventure (quite hectic 4x4 tracks) which i thought was exciting. Highlight of my drive was seeing the cute little... More
