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

We went there for our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute! The team was friendly and the atmosphere was authentic! We are vegetarians and they catered for our needs perfectly! I would definitely go back there again! Big shout out to our Ranger, Doug - who was fantastic!

We stayed at Idube in September, and had the best time ever! The combination of an amazing ranger called Doug, who never failed to show us something new, tell us something new and interesting, show his love for all animals and the more shy but just as astounding tracker Titus! Together they showed us the big five, as well as... More

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
