First time we're staying here after hearing rave reviews. From the time we arrived Renzo the manager greeted us at the front desk, was friendly accommodating and exceptionally helpful. The food was absolutely out of this world. Haniff, the chef needs to be complimented. Renzo even arranged an early lunch for us on the Friday, so as we can leave... More

I spent 2 weeks volunteering behind the scenes and then had one night in the lodges in the game reserve and one in the main hotel. I have travelled extensively through Africa from luxury to less than basic, this place simply has the most friendly and kind staff I have met. The facilities are excellent especially the lodges and the... More

Many thanks for a wonderful adventure of a lifetime. The grounds were amazing, the staff top notch and the experience was unforgettable. The bed was comfortable and the view can not be matched. The animals we were able to see with the guides/rangers as we went around hit every single thing I wanted to see while in South Africa. Kudos!

We spent 3 nights at Kwantu and had an amazing time seeing all of the animals. We went on 3 game drives and saw elephants, giraffes, the entire pride of lions, rhinos, impalas, wildebeests, springbok, warthogs, jackals, and many beautiful birds. In addition to the game drives, we spent a lot of time at the 'Touch Farm' and we visited... More

Stayed at Kwantu for 4 days and had a fabulous time. The team had worked out a brilliant itinerary which was open to the degree of flexibility we required. The game drives were awesome with knowledgeable guides who really take their time to explain the behavior of each animal. The night drive is a must do optional extra. We managed... More
