I stayed with my husband and another couple in October and we had a fantastic time. The accommodation was very nice and and had everything you would require, even dish cloths are provided. We stayed in an 8 sleeper but I would not recommend having 8 people staying, we didn't need to use the upstairs room but it was very small and up an odd stair case, it would be fine for two children but not adults if you we're staying for longer than 2 nights. The hide was a brilliant experience and made the lodge fantastic, likewise our room faced the fence so we had great views of zebra going to the waterhole. We had some good sightings, lion, rhino, elephant, zebra, giraffe and even a brown hyena. The only downside to Kwa Maritane location vs the other camps was the game roads, if you want to stay inside the park there is only one track to the other roads, it was quite long and ran close to the main road for quite some time so eats into your drive time, however what we did was left the park and drove outside to the park and re-entered at other gates, two of which are only 10 men's away.
Overall a very good experience and if you prefer nice accommodation over game spotting and want to avoid malaria zones this is the place for you, however if its the animals you are after my personal recommendation would always be the Kruger Park.
