This is a nice place to stay in Pilanesburg with an excellent breakfast and dinner buffet. We went on two guided tours. Our second guide, Emma, was very informative and led an excellent tour. The first guide, Gerhard, did not provide as much information. The staff at the hotel itself and at our meals were delicious. Overall, it was an...

Stayed at Kwa-Maritane Bush Lodge on the weekend of 11 - 12 February 2017. Everything about our stay was beyond expectations, from the room to the food and the game drive. The Staff are friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. It is very clear that the Lodge is well managed, the staff are happy and everything runs like...

Staying in the units at the end of the camp was really special - our own mini-swimming pool (the kids spent all day in it!), a well-appointed three bedroom unit, with kitchen and lounge facilities, TV linked to the waterhole, serviced and air-conditioned - all felt like a five-star breakaway in the midst of a busy year. The fact that...

Spent a night here and the experience was fantastic. Food was good but compared to other lodges who offer a barbecue/ spit roast it could be described as limited to be honest. Don't miss the tunnel and the hide into the reserve but its a bit false and hot and miss with animals. Bakubung has a better experience in my...

This is a kind of experience that you have to experience at least once in your life. We stayed here one week-end and did the safari ( we saw 4 of the big 5), and the special dinner in the bush ( with African live music: FANTASTIC!).

We have an 8 sleeper timeshare and it's always a place we look forward to going. It's spacious, has all the amenities and a direct view of the reserve where you can easily see animals go by. The gardens and pool is well maintained and so is the unit. The unit gets serviced daily as well.
