This is a small lodge with only a few rooms which gives you almost the feel as if you rented your own villa for a few days. People are exceptional. Can't say it differently. They do everything for you. are always prepared to make your visit or game drive special. Make sure you drive with Peter. He is a fantastic... More

This lodge is small, with a maximum of 14 guests, which suited us; however, it is in the Karongwe Reserve which houses three larger facilities attracting mostly overseas guests. Both the managers (Anita) and rangers (Peter) went out of their way to fulfil our every wish, from viewing big cats to providing meals at a time that suited us. We... More

From the moment we drove in, we were treated royally. The Manor house was amazing, comfortable and homely, ideal for the family. The game drives are first class and the Big 5 almost guaranteed. The restaurant is 5* with service to match. The evening meal around the fire on the deck was a highlight. Well done to all........we will be... More

We felt immediatly very goud after a warm welcome by Anita and Andre and the other staff members. We had a beautiful lodge and very good meals during the whole day. The game drive was done by Peter/Peter and his tracke and the teached us a lot about the wildlife and they tracked the big five! A beautiful experience

What an amazing experience we had at Kuname-we loved every second of the experience and did not want to leave. Anita is such a fantastic host and such a lovely person with a great sense of humour and people- she made us so welcome and our stay that even more enjoyable. Loved the game drives-even the getting up early was... More

The place itself looks beautiful with all the decor, really great taste and classy. Really enjoyed the game drives and thanks again to Moven and Johnson for... More

They attended to our every need. The staff were very attentive and polite. Our ranger, Morris and tracker Mosco were excellent. They worked hard to find us the... More

At the last moment our destination in Kruger was changed to the Kuname due to issues at our chosen game lodge. We need not have worried ! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left for our four night stay we were wonderfully looked after by Anita and Andre. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped with... More
