I have been coming to here for the last few years and I love it. The accommodation is comfortable. Clean. The restuarant food is tasty and service is fast and friendly. I love the Hide and watching the Hide tv. This resort is not recommended for party people. It is for people and families who respect nature and it's animals...

The games drives were excellent. The setting of the Lodge is very attractive. The rooms are good, but very cold in the winter with no heating. Food was less than mediocre which was disappointing, the buffet seemed reheated from the night before.

Came to Kwe Maritane with no idea what we would be doing and how the facility would be. It was a brilliant site with great food, wonderful game drives and very nice accommodations. We had one of the timeshare facilities with 3 bedroom and 2 baths which was great for 5 adults that were stay together. Really nice!
