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. The herd that you speak of has been around several times in the last week or so. Thank you for an excellent review and we hope to see... More

Wow wow wow! There is just no place like Africa and no place like Muweti. We can't get enough of this precious little hide away in the true African bush. Everything is clean, well run and fabulous! We cannot fault the lodge on a single thing. Thank you Mike and Laura for such a stunning stay. We will be booking... More

Imagine waking up with the sound of elephants on your door step, and having lunch with buffalo 2ft away. This weekend was absolutely one we will never forget. Mike's knowledge of the bush and game and Laura's cooking really blew our minds. We stayed in the tented chalet with a wonderful view of the unspoiled bush and wildlife. The perfect... More

Muweti is located in a very nice reserve. We stayed in the self-catering cottage and this is a lot larger than anticipated! The cottage was very luxurious. The road through the reserve though, had some bumpy bits and sometimes was scraping the bottom of our rental car quite badly, especially on the last bit. We were lucky enough to hear... More

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you had the privilege to see Royalty and close quarters. Thank you for you comments about the road. The topping was severely compromised after the very heavy rain in early March this year. As we understand it is on the reserve's plan for some repairs later in the... More

My partner and I stayed in one of the tented chalets for 5 nights in May 2014. The luxury tent was gorgeous inside and the view from our deck of the African bush was just stunning. After 7 months of traveling we didn't want to stay in one of the larger lodges so we booked Muweti for a more intimate... More

We stayed in one of the two tents. The tents are well equipped with all the necessary amenities you might need. The lodge has a beautiful pool - very handy in the warm climate of Phalaborwa! Two game drives per day are included. The biggest difference, what Muweti offers, is that it is run by two dynamic people. Great hosts!... More

Booked only one night, but immediately wished we could stay longer. Authentic in the bush experience, delicious food, great game drives and homely, authentic South African atmosphere. Some of the wildlife sightings that stood out: the endangered Southern Ground Hornbill, a beautiful Nyala bull and a abundance of elephants. Mike is a very knowledgable guide. Just remember to add some... More
