What a great stay at Isinkwe. From entering the farm you feel like you're in the bush. Room was "cosy", the bathroom was huge! The personnel was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the pool the most as it was hot (above 37 deg C). The food and service was above expectations. The bar was also well stocked and a blessing...

We camped for 2 nights at Isinkwe backpackers when visiting Hluhluwe Game Reserve. Isinkwe has a small camping area with nice and clean ablutions nearby. Cooking cannot take place in the campsite, but in a communal kitchen and firepit - we were lucky it was quiet and we had these facilities to ourselves. You also cannot bring your own alcohol...

Today my 8-year old daughter declared that of the great variety of accommodations we had during our trip in South Africa, Isinkwe was her favorite. The cabin was "cozy" and we could hear monkeys and bush babies at night. The pool was "awesome" - big and cool, a great relief for the hot afternoons. The staff were so friendly and...

We took a group of 13 (all family) for a one night getaway before going into Imfolozi. Not our first visit, we thought it would be ideal for a family get together. And that it was. Everyone loved it right from Granny down to my 12 year old daughter. The staff are fantastic and the facilities are perfect for the...

This bushcamp was a nice surprise. Included in the price is dinner and a very large breakfast. The rooms were comfortable, but nothing fancy. You feel that you are far from the outside world here. It was easy access to Hluhluwe park form here. I would stay again for sure.

Dinner and brekkie were great!!! Location to the Cat Project perfect. Our room, the shared bath were real bush feeling - nothing what we have expected for that money in ZA!! We would NOT stay there again.

Went to stay at Isinkwe with some student friends. The weather was awful that weekend so the one thing that would have made it better would have been hot water but unfortunately that didn't happen. The staff were lovely. The bush babies adorable and I would definitely recommend this place to someone on a budget. Especially if the weather is...

I loved being at Isinkwe, friendly hosts and staff, with lots of help pre booking. I had a lovely wooden chalet in a tiny but delicious piece of woodland, and loved watching the birds on my verandah every morning.

We enjoyed our stay. But would like to offer a few suggestions. The maintenance needs to see why the taps were dripping in the one shower and basin, wasting water. The door didn't lock on the shower. I would like to suggest a waste paper basket in the bedroom. We found the bed comfortable but the pillows were not comfortable...

Very friendly and helpful staff, food was wonderful and served on time, surroundings were perfect. managed a dip in the pool in April and thoroughly appreciated the fire that was lit afterwards. Organised safari was excellent - saw 4 of the big 5 and food on the trip was of a high standard.
