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

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

We had four nights at Kuname and we couldn't have asked for more. Everything about the lodge is fantastic, the setting, the food, the drink, the safari drives but most of the all the staff. Anita and her team couldn't do enough for you and you wont need or want for anything. Every meal is fantastic and in an amazing... More

I had 6 nights on safari and 3 of those nights were spent at Kuname. We were greeted by Anita on arrival and instantly we knew we were staying at the right place. She was so warm, welcoming and she just had this beautiful nature that made us realise we never wanted to leave. We were introduced to her partner... More
