Grietjie is part of the greater Kruger with lodges galore. Muweti however stands out not because of their luxuriously appointed tented chalets, complete with a gorgeous “bath with a view”, and not necessarily because of the lovely deck where sundowners are a must, not even because of the gorgeous pool where one can escape the bushveld heat, but because of the very special owners Mike and Laura and their very well trained, informative and friendly employees. That is their magic- especially the dinner time stories and laughter, shared over delicious food. Go try it for yourself

We had a great time at muweti Bush Lodge! Mike and Laura were such great hosts. They really know a lot about the game reserve and its animals. It was interesting talking with them. Mike made us a really great braai in their garden while the elephants walked around their property. Really amazing! The appartement we stayed in was beautiful and we got a visit from the roaming animals from time to time. I would really recommend this stay to everyone. Also you should go on a game drive with Mike. He really knows a lot about the area and its animals!

We visited Muweti Bush Lodge in early July 22 and it was much more than what we had expected. Great game drives (saw lions, leopard, elephants among many other animals and birds) were wonderful and the whole experience of living with family including 2 kids (with all worldly comforts) in the middle of jungle was wonderful.

Wow what an experience, this a true bush holiday full of adventure. We saw lion and elephant non stop! I have never been to a lodge where I constantly saw animals. The lodge manager Hardus is such a character and keeps you entertained, he is also exceptionally knowledgable and accommodating. I would strongly recommend Muweti for your next bush adventure.

I was blown away by the amount of wild life we seen. We had some very special sightings of Lion, elephant and buffalo but the highlight was definitely my first ever leopard sighting! Our guide Hardus was very knowledgeable, I’ll definitely be back

Muweti Bush Lodge is a gem of a place to stay. It is so peaceful there and the room (chalet with a veranda) we stayed in is unique with everything you need for comfort but also being so close to nature (we had elephants drinking from a waterhole literally within a few meters of us, as well as having giraffes pass nearby). Hardas bought us on fantastic morning and evening game safaris, as well as feeding us with lovely tailormade breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. He is very knowledgeable about all the animals in the area and is keen to help guests in anyway he can during their stay. The pool is a real added bonus, especially on really hot days! It's great to have no tv for a few days but wifi is good, so you can post up the fabulous pics you take, no problem. Staying at Muweti is more an experience of a lifetime than just a nice break away and we would highly recommend it. PS: We say a leopard amongst the animals during our 4 night stay there!!!

Mike, Laura and the hard working guides and staff at Muweti have hung on in there! How good is that for us all ?! It's the best thing since sliced bread. My partner and i have stayed with these beautiful people many times over the years, and consider them friends. Whatever you're reason for visiting the Greater Kruger area, you will not be better positioned to have the most memorable trip both in terms of accommodation, location, knowledge and passion for the bush. If i ever only go to one place again in my lifetime this is it. Guess what... you're going to have to visit for yourself (jealous) :) Go find yourself in the bush Sharon xx

Affordable big 5 self catering cottage for a family with children. Good game drives on large are. Grietjie however have a lot of houses that you can see while driving. Only negative point is that the cottage has now view point on a waterhole for animals or brids.

Thank you for this very good review. Unfortunately the cottage does not lend itself to a view point and by reserve regulations we would no longer be able to build a high rise platform to serve that function. You did visit the lodge deck but didn't stay long enough to enjoy the views. We do take note of your concerns and do try to accommodate your 2 concerns. We do understand Grietjie is high density as old farm land,, but we believe the net result is a massive massive conservation success,, given where we were 15 or so years ago. Best regards from all at Muweti.

Muweti is a beautiful camp of tented chalets (kinda like yurts) right in the middle of Grietjie Nature Reserve, which is part of Greater Kruger Park. Sadly, Muweti is one of the only lodges currently operating in Grietjie as the rest grapple with the the hardships of the pandemic, BUT I believe the reason they are still operating is because they offer a fist-class and unforgettable experience! Our host, game driver, and sometimes cook, Hardus was wonderful--so full of hospitality, eager to share stories, and extremely helpful in every way. The food was delicious, the ambiance was romantic, and the animals were super cool. I can't wait to visit again in the future!

Thank you for this wonderful review and we are delighted that you had a great time with us. Your comments are really encouraging given the Covid situation. We, like most other lodges are battling with the situation. We are all hanging in there. However, when things return to some form of normality we will be there. We look forward to your return visit one day. Best regards from all at Muweti.
