We had another lovely time here, the staff are all very pleasant and will do anything to help you. Dinner in the hide is the best as it is very rare to see a civet or a porcupine when you are just out driving in the bush. Thanks to our ranger and tracker we spent quite a while with a...

Kwa Mbili is a hidden gem. A smaller game reserve allows for greater individual attention customizing the experience to your needs. They have thought of everything to ensure your stay is truly special. Dinners in the Boma with an outdoor fire feels like a night on the Bachelor, dinner in the Hyde where we saw porcupine, a civet and a...

We arrived from Hoedspruit airport using the recommended travel service from the lodge. It took us 30 minutes while seeing all kinds of wildlife already - from giraf (kamelepaerd), wildebeest (gnoe) to impala's. At the lodge we were welcomed by the staff with nice refreshing towels and a welcome drink. We were in time for lunch so could enjoy with...

We recently stayed at KwaMbili Lodge for three days & three nights in a tent. What an amazing experience. We unfortunately missed a day & night as our plane was unable to land due to bad weather. However the remaining days certainly made us feel we had been robbed of that extra day as it was hard to say goodbye...

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We felt like home. Food was excellent. We had a boma dinner and even a candlelight dinner at the watchtower. We enjoyed all of...

We stayed at KwaMbili lodge for three days in january. Our travel agent recommended a tent and it was wonderfull (happily enough not extremely hot). The tent was very well equipped and furnitures, a bit colonial style, which made it very attractive. Nice outdoor shower (private). And nice hearing all the bush-noises at night! Very friendly and hospitable staff. Good...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
KwaMbili Game Lodge provides an authentic safari experience at an affordable price. KwaMbili is siutated in the Thornybush Game Reserve near Hoedspruit, within the Greater Kruger area. The reserve is home to the Big Five as well as an abundance of other game and bird species. This means good sightings, either while out on game drive or on foot during bush walks. KwaMbili means "Place of Two" in the local Shangaan language.Our knowledgeable rangers will introduce you to the tracks, movements, sights and sounds which give you a window into the secrets of the African bush. Back at the lodge, view wildlife from the safety and comfort of our well-positioned hide. If all this calls for time to just let the experience sink in ... take a dip in the swimming pool, just relax in an armchair or enjoy a cool drink at the bar. ... more   less
