Hello everyone, Especially to fellow muslim people, this is definitely the place to take your family or even a getaway with your girlfriends or sneak getaway with husband. From the start to the beginning my friends and I received royal treatment and to me personally this was such a balming experience after an emotionally challenging year but it was just... 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

Frankly, I was insulted that this lodge was passed off as 5 star. Missing toilets seats and cheap plastic rubbish bins in the main toilet were the first clue. Grass that had clearly been uncut for 3 weeks, badly maintained buildings and cheap fittings masquerading as classy were the next. Our room was nice but we had no sense of... More

Just a few words to say thank you for our wonderful experience at Kwantu. I made the reservation in January for the Easter weekend.

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

Stayed for the weekend 14 to 16 March 2015. What a wonderful experience. The food, the rooms, game drive and tour of the animal breeding programme were all excellent. But by far nothing compared to the fantastic service of the hotel staff. Absolutely pleasant , helpful and welcoming staff who went out of their way to make our stay so... More

One day is just not enough...It is not often that one receives such wonderful service in the hospitality industry now adays. Our day trip to Kwantu was a great experience for the whole family.
