Epic, amazing, unreal, fantastic, informative. I could go on for days. Ranger Mike is the best in the biz and tracker Mark is awesome. If you want someone to help you see lots of game, but better yet to learn amazing things at the same time than do yourself a favor and stay here. I'm sure at a lot of... More

Spent five nights at this Lodge and didn't want to leave. Accommodation 5 star, nothing too much trouble. Staff amazing, they really love working there. Food and activities way exceeded my expectations. Saw 'The Big Five' more than once with the very knowledgable guides and trackers. Well worth a visit

Unbelievable luxury in lodging, room, dining and drink at this fantastic lodge in Sabi Sands. After coming from Kruger in the park, it was a surprise that the guide turned the truck right into the bush, crashing over shrubs and trees to get us inches from leopards, lions, rhinos, hippos, cape buffalo, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, water bucks, bush bucks,...

From the time we were picked up at the airport until the time we left three days later, the staff at Adube treated us like royalty. Special thanks to Ranger Rob, Charita, and the old bar man named Martin. The room and mini suite that we occupied were pretty nice. The food was delicious and was carefully prepared by Idube's...

A beautifully spacious lodge with beautiful spacious rooms. This lodge is a very relaxing place to visit. Very well organised, good food, well stocked bar ( although you have to pay for the drinks), nice relaxing pool and the added addition of a hide to view animals that come to the waterhole. Most wild animals can wander through the lodge... More

Great lodge, nice staff, large nice room! What is amazing is to have the opportunity to live in the middle of the Nature, to be able to see some animals living within the lodge area. But the reason we selected Idube is the quality of safaris: we did 6 safaris there and honestly, this is probably the most incredible thing... More

My wife and I stayed at Idube for three nights and we had a great time. We stayed in the Makubela suites with a plunge pool. While we didn't use the pool we liked the large deck and privacy. The baboons took over our deck and used the pool to drink from one day and it was fun watching them.... More

My husband and I were going to Cape Town for a wedding and wanted to add a Safari to our trip. We love to travel, we can afford to stay in nice places, but we didn't want to spend crazy money on a Safari experience. We booked through Go2Africa and Mary Keet was our agent. She was absolutely perfect and... More

Many thanks to Matt, Anet and the team at Idube. We very much enjoyed the accommodation and food. Matt and Ronald treated us to the most amazing wildlife expreriences, the highlight of which was listening close up to a lion roaring into the night. Anet took such good care of our special requests. We arrived as visitors and left as... More
