5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Absolutely top class in a small friendly lodge with great staff, good food (excellent cost quality ratio) personal and very service minded guides.

I can highly recommend this lodge, and you should try this instead of one of the larger ones

Room Tip: The guides are very knowledgable and you should ask them to see something else then the big five - w...

Service was great and the guides are brilliant! The location is also great and you can the road through the park is good. The staff in the lodge is very open and very friendly. The meals are good and you can enjoy the beautiful view from the hide.

We loved our time at Kwa-Mbili. Comfortable, clean accommodation with gorgeous open plan lounge and dining. Animals grazing through the camp made us aware that we really were IN the bush. The children were particularly taken by the night visitors at the hide. Very special sightings of porcupine, civet & genet. Definitely a spot we'd visit again.... Thanks to the team who keep it personal and friendly.

The drives were awesome. We saw many animals, like a leopard and a cheetah. The food was delicious and the service was great! The rooms were very pretty. The height was also very nice, it was my only chance to see porcupines! A genet joined us at dinner, which was also pretty cool.

Kwa-Mbili is a gem. Ross is a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble for the team. Our 5 year old loved the game drives, and we were treated to many exotic sightings with our guide understanding great vantage spots for photography. We impulsively decided to stay a third day but needed to work remotely for a few hours. We had access to a landline, WiFi, and the most stunning ‘office’ in the lookout. We should have stayed a week…
