I don't have enough words to describe Muweti! We stayed for two nights, and booked it as a luxury stay during our two week trip in January. Luxurious doesn't even cover how amazing Muweti is. The owners, Mike and Laura, are the most warm, friendly, accommodating and lovely people, and they really make you feel like you don't need to... More

Nice and peacefull roundavel in the middle of the reserve with a fantastic view, clean, comfortable and affordable. Excellent food and charming game drive by the owners. Sepecial: No fences. Free as the wild animals around, lions roaring at night and elephants coming to say hello at your doorstep. Great.

Perfect place to stay, just two - very luxurious - tented chalets and a self- cartering house in a small private park. A waterhole just in front so you can see lots of elephants and other animals a few meters walking by. Swimming pool with a look-out deck, fire place and a nice dinner place. Perfect hosts; Laura's dinners are... More

Very spacious, clean & comfortable with lovely bush views. The bath is great and the shower so unique, just loved it. The food & wine was good with the setting serene.... More

Spent one night at Muweti Bush Lodge in Nov 2015. Luxury tents are really awesome and very private. Hosts Mike and Laura were just fantastic. Laura cooked amazing food and Mike took us on a very informative game drive. Would highly recommend it.

A wonderful secluded and magical location. Interesting game drives in the private reserve followed by relaxation by the infinity pool while watching the local elephants. Outstanding food and the perfect hosts who saw to our every need.
