This being my husband and my first South African safari, we couldn't have been more blessed. Idube Private Game Reserve Lodge is absolutely amazing, from the moment we stepped out of the car. We were greeted by the girls Cerita and Chloe, along with Mike and some of the other guys, with welcome drinks and after a run down on... More

This was our first safari experience and it was fantastic! The lodge is beautiful with Nyalas and Warthogs roaming within the grounds and little monkeys in the trees. Our chalet was lovely, we had everything we needed, the outdoor shower was an added touch. The game drives were amazing, our ranger was Promise and he seemed to really want to... More

We stayed at Idube for two nights following Kruger. The game viewing here is really something different and our guide Rob was extremely knowledgeable and seemed to have lots of fun in what he's doing. All the staff was excellent though, the food amazing and the bungalows spotless. There's a hidden lookout onto a waterhole where we spotted elephants and... More

This was the 4th of 4 lodges that we stayed at during our three week safari trip to South Africa. The lodge is only a short drive from the Newington Gate. We were welcomed by Cerita, given soft drinks and the routines explained to us. We were then taken to our rooms, which were very large and beautifully decorated. It... More

My wife and I and our two teenage boys visited Idube in the beginning of July for three nights. It was our first safari so we didn´t really know what to expect, but it turned out to be a truly magical experience and the absolute highlight of our South African vacation. From the beginning, we were treated by all the... More

Idube is an amazing experience! Our rooms and dining were fabulous. Sitting on our porch and watching the Nyalas/warthogs grazing on the grass so close was an unique experience. The drive really got in the bush. Our guide/tracker gave us an experience of an life time.

The wildlife in Sabi Sand and the expert guidance of Rob the Ranger and his tracker Marc make this a real adventure of a lifetime. The camp is so nice and relaxing with Nyala, warthogs, and baboons roaming the peaceful grass covered lawns and elephants and other wildlife visable at the hide across the swinging bridge from the lunch area....

We stayed for 3 nights in May. The rooms, meals, attention to detail were excellent. All the staff were helpful and keen to make sure we had a great experience. From our 1st game drive we saw leopard, hippo, giraffe, rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo etc, all up close and personal! Our guide Brogan was great and determined to get us... More

We recently stayed here for part of our honeymoon. The meals provided a taste of South African cuisine and the game grounds were beautiful. The safari was one of the main highlights on our trip. We saw so many animals with our ranger Mike, He was very knowledgeable about the environment and everything that inhabits it. Our game drives were... More

Although Idube is a lovely spot with great food and accommodation there is one thing that severely lets it down. The guides "bush bash" to find and pursue animals and we found this very disrespectful to the animals. Out of all the parks we visited this is the only one that did this and it is a pity. There is...
