My family and I visit Anita and the crew at the Kuname River Lodge over the holiday season. We had such an amazing experience with them; each time we returned from a game drive we were greeted with a warm greeting, a refreshing drink and hot face towels. The reserve had all the animals we were looking to see and...

This exceeded our expectations for a 3 generation safari. The rooms and view were stunning, the food phenomenal and the staff exemplary. Our tracker and driver made the trip pure heaven for 9&11 year old grandsons.
