Exceeds Expectations! The overall service care and attention to detail that we received from all the staff at kwantu game reserve was truly admirable. Enjoyed fabulous game drives and exquisite meals with 5 star accommodation. A definite must visit.

I did an internship here 3 years back, and I returned for a night and i had the most amazing time, they put me in the hotel and got to see how things have progressed. It was amazing to have a game drive again after a few years. They treated me very well, and it was very well received.

Spent 5 days here and it was everything it said it was and so much more. Lodges are separate from the hotel in the middle of the park. You need driven back and forward by the Game Rangers but they over look a water hole, allowing you to watch the wildlife from your own balcony. Lodges are beautiful, hotel is...

My family and I stayed at the "Lodges", which are practically rooms in a large gated Forrest where the "animals" supposedly are. The lodges no foot access to anywhere, and every time we wanted to leave we had to call a car! Very impractical! The food was horrendous, cold, dry and tasteless. The lodges didn't have wifi. The only wifi...

We have been wanting our little one to experience the great wildlife this country has to offer, so we decided on Kwantu Game Reserve, largely as they were child-friendly and offered a very attractive day package. The staff were magnificent, very interactive, helpful and happy. As far as the game drive goes, it was just as good, our guide was...

We attended a Retreat at Kwantu with dear friends. We had an amazing time. The Game Drive was excellent with even a close sighting of a herd of beautiful African Elephants. Getting back to the hotel, we were treated to a gastronomic experience which left us feeling beyond satisfied. Our luxurious rooms were spacious and just the cherry on top...

The hotel is child friendly. The staff is so professional and polite. Great for both family and couples. The conservation of nature in the the reserve just inspires one. They have the most beautiful animals and well informed rangers to explain the history of the place and animals.

Our stay at Kwantu was one of mixed outcomes. We stayed in the Lions View Villa, which advertised on the promotion leaflet as five star accommodation.It was not 5 star, it was more like a comfortable self catering unit. The unit itself was comfortable with the exception of the shower and the TV which had bad reception. The food was...
