Beautiful place where you can relax and have fun at the same time. I would recommended this venue for honeymooners. Even though we went there in the winter time I believe that it will be even more pretty in summer. Activities suits all needs and there is something for all types of people. Save up and do all the activities... More

We visited kwa madwala in the dry season 2015, had exemplary service and a wonderful time with many memories to cherish. Couldn't fault the service, location or activities. Good value for money, and would definitely return. Big boy the game driver was very knowledgable, made you feel safe and after 2 hours of tracking finally found the lions!

A real enjoyment. Except for suffering under over hot duvet (something in- between for men can be made available!) and not being able to sleep with open doors (bush babies! Some trellising for door opening?) – really good experience. Food preparation and service very good. Selection of drinks - limited

Our stay in the Manyatta Rock Camp was perfect, but the planning of the trip from Tembo Safaris was bad, 28 hours from Denmark to Manyatta, and 25 hours back to Denmark. With good planning it is possible to cut 5-7 hours of the trip.

KwaMadwala offered all the luxuries any honeymooners could ask for! The staff were incredible, the game drives informative, the food fantastic, the elephants were amazing and the overall experience was just out of this world! The perfect getaway and beautiful place to be.

Kwa Madwala is a very unique lodge....from the reception area to the pool area. The view from the restaurant is unbelievable. Not to mention the view from the public restrooms. The rooms are clean and well equiped and there is even a nice shower with a view outside the room. The food was also up to standard. Wish we could... More

I had to find a reason for visiting the elephant at Kwa Madwala. Fortunately my birthday and Father’s Day coincided presenting the perfect opportunity to enable my dream to come true. I could hardly keep my attention on our guide as the majestic elephant were right behind him. What a privilege to get close to the elephant, to touch them... More

This is an amazing place. Excellent value for money and the personal attention for the staff was so appreciated. I will recommend this to anybody. Excellent food, and an outside shower with the best view.

We can't say enough wonderful things about Kwa Madwala! The staff, the setting, the services, the food all exceeded our expectations! The elephant interaction is a must! Enjoy the game drives and the full day trip to Kruger.
