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

This is a very nice small lodge on the banks of the Kuname River, which was dry at the time of our visit. The room we had was nicely appointed and included both an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as an outdoor bath. The lodge provides two game drives a day and our guide, Jeffrey, was excellent. We saw... More

Far away from the busy world you have very nice rooms, we had no.I, very clean and all comfort, safety box, coffeestation, minibox etc. Every day 2x a 3h-gamedrive and within 24h we had the Big-5. Breakfast,... More

We visited Kuname for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon adventure and it didn't disappoint. It was our first safari experience and it certainly will not be our last. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Anita, Andre and the Kuname team who couldn't have done enough to make us feel more welcome. The room was spectacular... More

This was our first safari and our joint 50th birthday treat. A big thank you to Anita, Andre, Peter, Sandy & staff for making this extra special. The food well what can we say? Excellent, lots of it, all to scrummy and to a very high standard but be prepared for the gym on your return! The game drives were... More

One of the reasons that we chose to stay 4 nights at Kuname River Lodge was because it has 5 Chalets with potentially a maximum of 10 guests. However, when we arrived we found that there were 17 guests in total staying at the lodge and the attached Manor House. On our first afternoon game drive we had 10 people... More
