They take in only small groups at a time so the attention to guests is excellent. The safari is in the private game reserve (not in the Kruger...

Brilliant location with sublime service from the beginning to the end of our stay. The accommodation was well above expectation and wonderful food as well. It goes without saying that the game drives exceeded expectation. I know why guests return to Kuname Lodge.

All the staff here make the stay fantastic. All very friendly and helpful. The Ranger (Peter) is enthusiastic and has a great sense of humour. Always trying to make sure his guests are happy. Special mention to the tracker (Sandy), who's quietly spoken but just as friendly. Everything was great; animals, staff, food, room but... just be aware, there is...
