We spent 4 days on safari in Kwa Madwala and enjoyed every minute! With this type of vacation what you get is what you make of it and the experience was phenominal! The wildlife experince was first class, the hotel was great, the food was great and the stafff were outstanding! Could not fault the location for a ifrst time safari experience for a family of 3 children - 9, 11 and 15! Perfect!!
Although we had hard days of animal experience - not the big 5 every time - the experience was genuine! and that's sometimes more important than animal spotting! The experience and the resort is one I would not hesitate to recommend! Perfect if you can spend Saw 4 of the big 5..apart from leopard, experienced driver was a massive help with the kids, and they really reponded to his local knowledge on anaimal, plants and wildwife! A wonderful experience was discussing the sky at sunset and the stars on the African sky!On slight negative on our 5 days was the Boma not for kids .....nor me......too many beasties on my plate!! (IIn Scotland we tend not to see too many beasties!)
Overview - Brilliant - and importantly to make it a first class expericne for all, your kids need to appreciate the wildlife is truly wild! Screaming out of the question.....we had some younger kids (under 6) from SA for whom it was all too much!
Kwa Madwala - I will return!
