I was looking for a deeper experience than just a visit to a park or reserve and so I decided to go to Kwantu on their volunteer program as I thought I would be exposed to more and have the opportunity to learn quite a lot.

We spotted lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, hippos and many more on our game drives. The only problem is that by no standards it is a five star game reserve as they claim. I stayed at the Lions View... More

My previous visits were three years ago. The game reserve is alcohol free and caters for people from all religious denominations who wants to spend a few days in an alcohol free environment while enjoying nature. Muslim prayer rooms available for men and women. Two churches on the property. A new section called Lion's View, consisting of 10 units added... More

My best experience ever. Service is great, Very hospitable. Worth every dollar. Game sightings really good. The lions were so close, Myheart was pounding in my chest. The food was really top drawer, great variety and of excellent quality. The predator camp and lion cub experience will always be cherished.
