If you enjoy your safaris this is the place to go. We arrived at Idube and were met by Andrew who explained what our daily routine would be. He immediately went up in my estimation when he introduced me to a new type of gin - it's quite aromatic and quickly became my drink of the day! He explained they... More

My wife and I stayed at Idube for three nights 31 October to 2 November at the start of a 12 day stay in Sabi Sands to celebrate her 65th birthday. We were lucky enough to have Brogan and Titus as Ranger/Tracker and got to see some wonderful sightings of Leopard and the rest of the big five plus African... More

The staff members are wonderful. Our ranger and tracker were a good team: Brogan and Titus. We were so close to all the Big five animals. It was fun! Dinner was very fine and tasty for both nights. The chefs are very good. But the morning tea/coffee, breakfast and lunch were just barely okay. Was little annoyed that the breakfast... More

What an amazing 4 days and nights we spent at this gem of a lodge. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed warmly. Firstly the manager, Andrew explained the location of the facilities, gave us a rough idea of the daily schedule and ran through some of the 'rules' to follow regarding the wildlife. (There is an electric fence... More

Just left there and want to go back. Lovely people. Good food and room. Fantastic game viewing. Brogan, our ranger, was fabulous. Very well-run by Churita and team who are really passionate and knowledgeable about the area. Would recommend to anyone.

As far as the accomadation, it was very nice indeed, very comfortable and homely, however the menu... More

2 years ago I discovered this gem...and I couldn't wait to come back! We spent 5 days here this time and loved every minute of it! The chalets are comfortable and safe. The food is tasty and diverse. Staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. And the animal viewing is out of this world! Rob the Ranger and Ronald... More

Stayed in the Makubela suite outside of the electric fence. Absolutely stunning high ceiling suite with lovely bathroom, comfortable bed, deck and unheated plunge pool.The public areas (early breakfast/high tea) and lounge area are bit smaller than other lodges, but one doesn't spend much time in there. They do have a pool which we did not use during their winter.... More

My second visit to Idube was just a great at the frist one in april 2013. If you are looking for a great value for money private game reserve in the Sabi Sand or Timbavati area, look at Idube. The chalets are very comfortable, with a big bathroom and an outside shower. They are spread out in a big garden,... More
