This is the easiest review I've ever written. Everything was a highlight. Simply world class. Thank you Anita & Andrè. You are champions The bush is spectacular, the accommodation is wonderful & the setting over the river allows the eyes to stretch. Highly recommended

The wedding was memorable from the beginning to the end with a beautiful ceremony beneath the Fig Tree in... More

I could say the best stay We appreciated in S.A. This lodge can offer you kind service, delicious menu for breakfast and dinners. The rooms are perfectly vleaned, a wanderfull relaxing oasis. You perfectly enjoy the contact with the nature and the beatiful view of the river. The sounds, the smell and the emotions you live in this place are... More

we had a three night stay at this lodge and overall it was excellent. We were met with a nice cooling drink and friendly faces, taken to our lodge, tired and hungry after a busy couple of weeks round South Africa, The staff made us a lovely light meal to refresh our energies before we went on our first drive....

We stayed 2 nights in the Manor House and had a wonderful stay at Kuname. The game drives were amazing - especially the Big 5. Jeff and Mosco were very friendly and helpful on the drives. We are a family of 5, with 3 grown kids, and the Manor House was perfect - nice and quiet with wildlife on our... More

My family and I stayed three nights in Kuname River Lodge this December 2014. The lodge is exceptional both in style, as well as service. We stayed in the family lodge which was spacious and very comfortable with our two children. The quality of the food and service was excellent. The Safari with our guide "ellen" was great, she was...

Wonderful 3 days. Lovely small lodge - which encouraged friendly relations with other few guests. It was like staying in someone's home rather than a hotel.I thought the safari rides would be too long - but each 3 hours flew by.

This is a rather delayed review as we visited Kuname back in July 2013, but I'm trying to keep my promise to my wife that I'll comment more on good places! We arrived at Kuname due to a bit of a mix up in bookings...we had originally booked a tented camp which was "closed" for some reason, and were initially... More

A huge thank you to the team at Kuname for there hospitality and Safari experience. It was our first safari so we had no idea what to expect but we wanted a small intimate safari experience away from the more touristy large complexes and this is exactly what we got. We stayed for 4 nights and we were on our... More
