Absolutely brilliant! Super friendly staff, fantastic food, beautiful rooms. This resort is so well maintained and you regulary encounter staff cleaning inside and outside the many buildings. The game drives are also highly recommended and our guide, Francois, was great! Thank you so much Kwa Maritane for a wonderful time!

Experienced luxury, good food and friendly staff while visiting Kwa Maritane Game Lodge with international guests. Lovely view of wild life from the lodge. It is also close to Sun City if you enjoy some night life.
