We stayed with Mike for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We arrived tired and beat after a long journey and was welcomed to one of the most fantastic places we've seen. Mike is the most fantastic host you can imagine, the accommodation is beautiful and the food is superb. The game drives were very educational and...

If you are looking for a piece of heaven, Muweti Bush Lodge is the place to head to. What a wonderful weekend Les and I had at the Lodge.

Our three-week trip through South Africa ended in the best possible way at Muweti Bush Lodge. Spectacular, beautiful, quiet and exciting in a perfect mix. Elephants oversaw our breakfast in the morning and our last night in the bush was accompanied by the sound of lions a few hundred meters from our chalet. Mike did everything to make our game...

We stayed at Muweti for 5 days over Christmas and were very impressed with the accommodations (tented chalets), game drives, food and hospitality provided by Mike and Laura. Our package was inclusive of 2 game drives/day, all meals and airport transfer- all very convenient. We had 3 elephant sightings at the Lodge's watering hole while we were lounging at the...

The owners Mike & Laura provide an unforgettable experience. Service was top-notch. On the twice daily game rides Mike provides unique insight from his scientific and conservation background. Laura's meals are five-star! The chalet was perfect along with the morning room upkeep and the turn down service. The whole experience was so much more than what we expected from the...

We stayed for two nights at Muweti with Mike and Lauren. When we arrived, the rain and a mini tornado had caused some damage to the property, but it had no impact in our stay. The tent-chalet is sleeping as close to the Bush as you can. The morning and afternoon game drives with Mike were very nice and educational....

Thank you for this excellent review. Your departure truly humbled us and we are so glad you enjoyed yourselves to that extent. Hopefully we will see you again in the future. We have had 18mm rain since you left and although still very dry, perhaps a sign of things to come. Kind regards from us all at Muweti.
