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

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

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...
