The accommodation is very comfortable yet unpretentious. Facilities are very well maintained. The hide is awesome and having a webcam which can be viewed from your unit a real bonus. Staff are friendly and professional but not intrusive. Upstairs balcony is just right for early morning coffee while watching the warthogs play

The lodgings are not fancy or modern but we love coming back to Kwa Maritane every few years. The resort has an unfussy, relaxed vibe and we enjoyed self catering. Lots of game out the back of our unit, at the hide, and seen on game drives. Service is impeccable. Good proximity to Sun City.

Our safari guide Sheldon was awesome. He was both extremely knowledgeable and entertaining - great sense of humor. He went out of his way to make sure we all left satisfied, and we did!

We first visited Kwa Maritane 19 years ago and had a great experience then - it lived up to our memories again this week when we stayed with family. Pilanesberg may not be so well-known as a game park destination to foreigners but in fact has really knowledgeable guides and amazing wildlife including elephants, giraffes, kudu, impala, warthogs, leopards, cheetahs,...

From arrival to departure, the experience was fantastic! Amazing staff all round (especially Maxine, where nothing was ever to much trouble) The food was excellent, both in the restaurant and at the Boma.
