“Excellent”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

Stayed at Kwa Maritane for 4 nights in August, with my husband and tennage son & daughter. Accomodation was first class, excellent food, terrific staff, nothing was too much trouble for them. Game drives were good, and as we had a hire car we drove ourselves around the park on occassions. We all fell in love with the place. Would dearly love to go back.

What a greast relief to have been informed about this gem after we left the suncity complex hotels ( real rubbish) early .
Still able to enjoy our game drives and golf at suncity but yet not be put up with the bad hotel experiance.
Kwa maritane is well run well managed and is totally customer focused. Nothing is to much trouble.The drives where ahndled well , the boma experiance is great and the quality of meals are the best i had in south africa .
Only worry was the odd snake or two :-))
A hotel i will glaldy return to when i get the chance to venture to south africa again.

Room Tip: Water hole view

Stayed at Kwa Maritane for two nights in September. Accomodation was first class, staff very friendly and helpful, food was delcious. Good quality game drives although we did see more animals on the early morning drive. After our game drive we were eating breakfast overlooking the water hole when a group of zebras came down to drink. which was a lovely sight. Sun City is very close by so there are optioins if you want more attractions. Would recommend this hotel.

Hubby and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary in a special place where we could immerse ourselves in the animals of Africa. We chose Pilanesburg as it is a non-malaria area. Our tour company suggested Kwa Maritane Lodge and we were delighted with our stay.
Although the hotel is undergoing some construction, we were not inconvenienced. The room was charming with a great view of the game preserve and watering hole. A Hide with actual viewing areas and a 24 hour Hide cam allowed you to see critters coming up to drink--5 white rhinos sauntered up one night at 10:30 for a drink!
We booked 2 early morning and 2 late afternoon bush drives. My favorite moment was seeing a mother rhino nursing her tiny baby close enough to the road for us to have a look at the two without disturbing them. Hard to top that. Guides knew where to look for animals and worked hard to give us an unforgettable experience.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed good, we requested non-smoking and had a super view of the preserve.

My wife and I, both pensioners, spent a midweek at Kwa Maritane on our QVC Points beginning of August 2011. The resort is very good, well maintained and the service is good and friendly. We stayed in a one-bedroom unit and everything we needed for a self catering week was there! It is probably one of the best resorts in South Africa that we have visited in all our time with QVC - and we have been to a lot of them!. The proximity to Pilanesberg National Park allowed us to visit the park for short periods and we did not have to spend the whole day in a vehicle. All the entrance gates are very close by and the entry package for the week cost us only R60,00. From a pensioner's point of view, you can hardly beat this during a midweek!

The staff at this hotel are what makes it. Really freindly and welcoming. The restaurant manager remembered me by name from my last stay, which was over a year ago. All of the staff are happy and freindly. Rooms good, evening buffet dinner very good. Good wine list. Overall an excellent place to stay.
