We had a phenomenal stay at Muweti Bush Lodge. Very roomy and nicely furnished cottage, wonderful infinity pool & deck with great view into the wild. Lovely hosts (Mike & Laura) that made our stay even more special & had lots of helpful tips. Mike took us on a safari where we got to see lots of animals close up... More

Our three-week trip through South Africa ended in the best possible way at Muweti Bush Lodge. Spectacular, beautiful, quiet and exciting in a perfect mix. Elephants oversaw our breakfast in the morning and our last night in the bush was accompanied by the sound of lions a few hundred meters from our chalet. Mike did everything to make our game...

We stayed at Muweti for 5 days over Christmas and were very impressed with the accommodations (tented chalets), game drives, food and hospitality provided by Mike and Laura. Our package was inclusive of 2 game drives/day, all meals and airport transfer- all very convenient. We had 3 elephant sightings at the Lodge's watering hole while we were lounging at the... More

The owners Mike & Laura provide an unforgettable experience. Service was top-notch. On the twice daily game rides Mike provides unique insight from his scientific and conservation background. Laura's meals are five-star! The chalet was perfect along with the morning room upkeep and the turn down service. The whole experience was so much more than what we expected from the... More

In a nutshell: Our 3 nights at Muweti were like a dream and I wish we could return for an extended stay soon. We (couple from Germany) stayed at Muweti in Dec 14, towards the end of our 3 week trip through South Africa. While all accommodations that we had were great, Muweti definitely became our favorite place: Luxurious and... More

We stayed for two nights at Muweti with Mike and Lauren. When we arrived, the rain and a mini tornado had caused some damage to the property, but it had no impact in our stay. The tent-chalet is sleeping as close to the Bush as you can. The morning and afternoon game drives with Mike were very nice and educational.... More

Nice to hear from you and thanks for a great review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves here. Of course in an open system, game viewing is sometimes a bit lean which you understand, so maybe we see you again sometime and with better luck? Kind regards from all at Muweti. More

Thank you for this excellent review. Your departure truly humbled us and we are so glad you enjoyed yourselves to that extent. Hopefully we will see you again in the future. We have had 18mm rain since you left and although still very dry, perhaps a sign of things to come. Kind regards from us all at Muweti. More

We spent two nights with Mike and Laura at Muweti and it was truly fantastic! From the very first moment it was like a perfect african dream.

Back in Blighty and enjoying cold, windy weather, so definitely missing our stay at Muweti. I don't think our review will come close to doing Muweti, Laura or Mike justice. We were three weeks in South Africa for our honeymoon, wedding blessing and my 50th, Muweti will be one of our abiding memories. In fact sometimes, we forgot we were... More
