We've spent 2 nights at Idube and did 4 game drives (6 am and 4 pm), plus 1 guided walk in the morning. The staff are all very friendly, reliable and enthusiastic. They were committed to deliver what we were asking for and to go beyond our expectations. We’ve seen all the BIG 5 and more! We even had morning... More

My husband and I stayed at the Makubele suite at Idube Game Reserve Lodge. The staff is really friendly, suite was comfortable and cozy and the food was delicious especially the offbeat special dishes are a must-try. We did the full day safari and are so very glad that we got the big 5 with sightings – we saw leopards... More

Just had an experience of a life time at the Idube Game Lodge in Sabi Sands. The game drives were fantastic with several sightings of the big five during our four days there. You go off road and I mean off road, knocking down trees that are in the way and riding through rivers and streams. Great excitement. You get... More

We absolutely loved it here- the actual lodge was stunning with lots of little Impala and Warthogs running around. The rooms were beautiful and the food was great. Dinner was a wonderful experience as all guests sat around a big bonfire eating exotic foods like Warthog! Compliments to the chef! All this and I haven't even mentioned our game drives-... More

It was the second time I've been to Idube, and I fell in love with that place once again. The cottage was beautifull, the staff is so friendly, the food was good and the game drives were just amazing. Our ranger Doug was so nice, knew a lot about nature and honestly, he was the best ranger I've ever had!... More

The reason to go is the amazing views on the game drives, twice/day. Okker and Eric made sure that we saw all of the animals, up close and personal, even if they had to drive over some bush or through a river to get us there. While we were observing (and snapping pictures) Okker explained the animals' habits to us,... More

Been to South Africa and Kruger area many many times. Best wildlife viewing yet at Idube Lodge. Okker and Titus were our guides and just awesome. Almost missed my flight back because a leopard was wondering around in front of my cottage. Great Food, great service !

Stayed for 4 nights in July 2014 with my wife and 2 teenage girls in the Makubela suites. The suites were gorgeous with a virtually all glass back overlooking the bush. To add to the adventure, one night there was a leapord outside our room and another night we were awoken to an elephant grazing right by our bathroom window.... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at both Idube and Lukimbi lodges in November 2013, two nights at each property. Both have their perks, and I highly recommend splitting your time between the two if possible. Idube is all about the drives. We had amazing guides, Rob was our driver and Titus was the spotter. What I... More
