We booked a daytrip at Kwantu and thoroughly enjoyed it! Upon arrival there was a warm welcome, drinks and delicious snacks. The game drive was amazing and our guide very knowledgeable. It was also great to see the preditor rehabilitation center. The lunch buffet was great again, also the vegetarian food for my partner was delicious! Spent some nice hours... More

A good little game reserve but it is only in the early stages of its development. Could do with a few more years of tree planting/vegetation control and it will be beautiful. Plenty of opportunity for game viewing and good chance that you will see a lion or two.

Dear Gill We would like to thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We appreciate the comments regarding the vegetation and are pleased to advise that we are in the process, and have been for some time, of removing the "alien" vegetation in our area and planting indigenous trees in its place. This is done as the "alien" vegetation... More

Best month of my life! Nothing can compare to waking up to the deep rumbling sound of lions roaring, everyone there was incredibly welcoming and hospitable. The food was delicious and the guides always went out of their way to tell us interesting stories that made it a truly unforgettable experience. Would love to return!
