We had another lovely time here, the staff are all very pleasant and will do anything to help you. Dinner in the hide is the best as it is very rare to see a civet or a porcupine when you are just out driving in the bush. Thanks to our ranger and tracker we spent quite a while with a...

Kwa Mbili is a hidden gem. A smaller game reserve allows for greater individual attention customizing the experience to your needs. They have thought of everything to ensure your stay is truly special. Dinners in the Boma with an outdoor fire feels like a night on the Bachelor, dinner in the Hyde where we saw porcupine, a civet and a...

We arrived from Hoedspruit airport using the recommended travel service from the lodge. It took us 30 minutes while seeing all kinds of wildlife already - from giraf (kamelepaerd), wildebeest (gnoe) to impala's. At the lodge we were welcomed by the staff with nice refreshing towels and a welcome drink. We were in time for lunch so could enjoy with...

We recently stayed at KwaMbili Lodge for three days & three nights in a tent. What an amazing experience. We unfortunately missed a day & night as our plane was unable to land due to bad weather. However the remaining days certainly made us feel we had been robbed of that extra day as it was hard to say goodbye...

We stayed at KwaMbili lodge for three days in january. Our travel agent recommended a tent and it was wonderfull (happily enough not extremely hot). The tent was very well equipped and furnitures, a bit colonial style, which made it very attractive. Nice outdoor shower (private). And nice hearing all the bush-noises at night! Very friendly and hospitable staff. Good...

My wife and I, along with another couple, spent 4 nights at KwaMbili Game Lodge. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Our guide and tracker(Jacques and Eddie respectively) were informative, engaging and did everything possible to exceed our expectations. The outdoor tent was initially a bit intimidating, but I quickly embraced the experience. Living in the...

Unbelievable!!! We have never been treated with a warmer more personal service anywhere anytime. The people who work here makes you feel at home from the minute you get there. The food was incredible as well. The safari trips were fantastic, and Edward and Eddie were even more fantastic. In fact the staff at this place are as good as...

Stayed here for 2 nights and did 2 morning and 2 afternoon game drives. Ranger Jacques and spotter Edde did a great job managing to find the big 5 while explaining a lot about the animals and the environment. The camp is not luxurious, but perfect for us. It is well maintained and gives you a homey feeling. Small swimming...
