Lovely accommodation in a calm and relaxing setting. Each cottage are comfortably furnished, although it needs a little bit of updating on the interior. The braai area outside are very nice and every cottage has a lovely view on the Sabie river. Close to Hazyview with a lot of activies.

Our feeling after staying at Kwambali recently were mixed. We chose this place after reading the online reviews however it did not meet our expectations in terms of facilities in the room. The location is the best thing about this place and we cannot really fault that. Beautiful exteriors, gardens, braai area, riverview and lovely birds visit the area. The... More

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you experienced some problems during your stay at Kwambali. We have had many families with young children stay at the lodge and have not had any issues with beds in the past. To say that the lodge is not child-friendly because of this seems a bit harsh.

My husband and I stayed in one of the bungalows for 4 nights at the beginning of April. This was the most picturesque place that we stayed in during our 2 week holiday in South Africa. It was so quiet and peaceful, just listening to bird calls and the rush of the Sabie River a few metres away. Our bungalow... More

Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and will pass your comments on to our staff. We are very fortunate to have only a short winter during which the pools aren't a welcome relief from the heat and hopefully you will be able to enjoy this during your next visit. More

We spent 4 nights here during early winter and enjoyed every one of them. It is perfectly situated to enjoy what the Highveld had to offer, and will appointed, with great staff turning a holiday into a proper vacation.

Beautiful place, well maintained with friendly, kindhearted and helpful staff. We really enjoyed staying there and would love to go back sometime soon. Waking up to the sounds of the flowing Sabie river and the beauty of the rising Mpumalanga sun over the lush green surroundings was blissful. The cell reception was not good but it was a small price... More

I had bought this from Groupon for my mother and sister, but ended up joining them for a short holiday. We absolutely enjoyed the stay from the reception to the rest of our stay. I have recommended to friends and family already

We really enjoyed staying here. The trees and river just relaxed us and long hours spent at the swimming pool. The cottage was clean and had all the needed amenities for a self catering cottage. The only down side was that there was no wifi and very poor cellular signal.

This little resort has huge well kept gardens along the river, all chalets facing the river. Perfect to relax. Kitchens are well equiped, and each chalet has an excellent braai outside. Perfect place to relax close to Hazyview (or even Kruger) and Sabie if you wish to drive around, but in my opinion this is perfect just to sit back... More
