We stayed at Kwa Maritane for 2 nights as a last minute booking because everything else in the area was full. The property was surprisingly good, and although it was also fully booked it never appeared to be overcrowded.
Our room was really well presented, modern and comfortable, it was a bit of a hike to the restaurant but I guess that's what you get for booking the day before the long weekend. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room, but we had a very comfortable bed and the room was very clean.
The resort has lots of facilities and would be really well suited to a family or group of families, with several pools, mini- golf, tennis courts etc lots for the kids to do between the morning and evening game drives. Good value too, as they offer very well priced, all inclusive packages.
We ate most of our meals in the restaurant and the food was good quality with lots of choice. All meals were buffet style (although there is a separate menu at lunch) and I'm not a massive fan of the buffet, but it was fine for a couple of days. The best thing about the restaurant is that you can sit quietly, have a few drinks and watch all the animals wander to the water hole - very relaxing. We also went to the Saturday night Bush Brai which I would recommend as a fun experience particularly after the evening game drive, when they drop you straight to the Boma in the middle of the bush.
We took a couple of the hotel run game drives which were good value and well run, but to us nothing beats the self-drive option when it's available. For self drive we went out of the park and entered at other gates to be able to see more of the park. This proved to be a great choice as we only saw elephants and lions in other parts of the park.
