We stayed in one of the timeshare chalets with our own plunge pool. It was our second time at the lodge and we loved it. The chalets are well equipped and the onsite restaurant is very good. The water hole, reached by an underground tunnel, is certainly worth a visit as you are right next to any visiting wildlife. We...

An older style resort at the bottom end of the park. It's a long drive to get to where the game is, and game drives usually return through sun city rather than the park. Lots of stairs if you are not mobile. Restaurant buffet is awesome and the amenities are better for kids than private lodges.

Firstly we stayed there for 3 days in this resort it was really good and it is just 10-12 mins away from Sun City.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Kwa Maritane. The location of the resort is lovely - ideal for the park and also very close for a day trip to Sun City.

Friendly staff, 1 miserable, unfriendly and unhelpful lady in reception though. Very relaxed place but very limited entertainment for kids/teenagers, therefore kids were extremely bored for 4days.

Very quiet place, gives off the image you got to walk...

Dear jpj225, Thank you for making time and effort to send us this feedback. We have taken note of the comment of one lady at reception and have collectively addressed the concern with all.

Good experience overall. We went for a weekend and it was extremely busy - lots of families with children, so it got quite noisy which sadly takes away from the serene experience some wish to have.

We stayed a night at kwa maritane on 24 April, as part of a family holiday. We had great expectations of the place having visited on a day trip before.
