While the lodge was nice, we much preferred their sister lodge, Lukimbi in Kruger. You're guaranteed good sightings at the private reserves, but we didn't think our guide was as invested in making the trip special for us (such as working hard to give us relevant information or set us up for good photos in the vehicle). No matter how... More

Spent 4 nights at Idube Game Lodge so 7 safari drives in all. Because they can take you off-road, you can get really close to all the animals. Not stayed in any other lodge but Idube was great. We were always 6 people per 4WD and Promise, our ranger, tried to keep us informed, entertained, and in the prime spot... More

Our experiences have ranged from the high end offerings to those just above the very bottom (price and attention to detail). Idube is one of the more affordable lodges and one has to set ones expectations accordingly.... More

Game drives with experienced trackers and guides got us closer to the animals than I ever imagined we would be.

If you can go to both Idube and Lukimbi, they are a perfect match! It is not a luxury lodge but it is well run, has excellent rangers, a homely atmosphere and has amazing amount of Big 5.

We stayed here for two days as part of a an extended honeymoon. There are warthogs and nyla's that frequent the lodge as well as some vervet monkeys. It was very cool to see them around the lodge during the day. The staff is very friendly, the food was very good, the room was beautiful. But it is the game... More
