It has been a while since I've been there, but the memory is still fresh and it is one of my favourite memories of our trip to South-Africa. If we would have known about this place beforehand and we hadn't already booked a night in Kruger Park afterwards, we wouldn't have stayed onlye one night, we would had extended our... More

From the game drives with Mike & Jess to Lauras awesome food always freshly cooked and the evenings around the fire with them and the other guests it was a perfect stay. For people who... More

My fiancee to be and me stayed here at the beginning of April 2016. Before hand I had contacted the owner to set up things for my proposal. Mike and his wife Laura were the sweetest ever, and the proposal went exactly as planned. A beautiful sunset, champagne ready. The bed room was extremely cool, looking over a small puddle... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. Understandably the reserve is looking harsh at this time, having had 2 dry seasons in a row, with this year's drought being the worst in at least 33 years and maybe even since the 1930's . This is part of the wet/dry cycles we have. We certainly look forward to ANY rain at this... More

I don't have enough words to describe Muweti! We stayed for two nights, and booked it as a luxury stay during our two week trip in January. Luxurious doesn't even cover how amazing Muweti is.
