A beautifully, peaceful setting in the bush, where the animals come to you. The accommodation allows you to observe your surroundings all day long. Wake up to bids song & the gentle rustling of the bush. Imagine seeing twelve giraffe & numerous elephants, drinking at the waterhole, visible from the main deck, that was our experience on one day.

The Muweti Bush Lodge experience is a very personal one. Mike and Laura and very hands on and in many ways one feels like one has returned home. Mike is wonderful on the game drives and Laura's culinary skills are excellent. Both of them are attentive and caring hosts who maintain very high standards all round.

We stayed with Laura and Mike for three days in September 2014. They are a remarkable couple in a very special place. The (two) tented chalets are literally touching the bush and are very confortable. During out stay it was very hot, but the wind can blow through the screens and air conditioning is not necessary. The pool is perfect... More

My husband and I stayed at Muweti for 3 nights this September. Laura and Mike are the most fantastic hosts and made us so welcome. The rooms are beautiful and so romantic. The pool was perfect for a relaxing dip in the day. Can't wait to go back!!!

Our stay with Laura und Mike was THE unforgettable time of our trip to SA. Not only the experience to sleep in a beautiful tented chalet (almost) in the bush, but especially the personal contact with both of them.

Enjoyed the stay, the hospitality of Mike and Laura, and mainly the great show provided by the elephant herd that passed daily close by the cottage. We truly had the feeling of being in the bush. The quietness of the reserve is fantastic.

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay here especially after the difficulties you had in postponing your visit several times. So really pleased you had a relaxing and "elephant" stay.
