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...

We booked this while staying as guests at Sanbonani, so we hadn't done any research and didn't have any idea of what we were getting into. We're a family of 4 with two sons, 21 and 23. There were lots of questions .... Would we be staying in a tent with bugs, or snakes, or hyenas, or even bigger? Would...

A perfect place!! Relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff that make you feel like friends! Great game drives where the rangers do their very best to guarantee sightings of any animal you would like to see. Next to that they share all knowledge you want to know. Meals are delicious! We shed a little tear on our drive out, that's how much...

This is "glamping" and I love it. If it weren't for the fully plumbed bathrooms attached to the tents, I was not getting my wife to stay in a tent in the middle of African bush. Lucky for me the bathrooms are great, and the close up wildlife viewing is amazing. Atticus was our host, and Edward, Jacque, and Edde...

It is the perfect bush setting and a great weekend escape for the whole family. The game drives were experiences to remember and the rangers and trackers are knowledgeable. We had wonderful three coarse dinners in the boma and hide with impeccable food. The accommodation is very comfortable and one can even spot a lot of game in the camp....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
KwaMbili Game Lodge provides an authentic safari experience at an affordable price. KwaMbili is siutated in the Thornybush Game Reserve near Hoedspruit, within the Greater Kruger area. The reserve is home to the Big Five as well as an abundance of other game and bird species. This means good sightings, either while out on game drive or on foot during bush walks. KwaMbili means "Place of Two" in the local Shangaan language.Our knowledgeable rangers will introduce you to the tracks, movements, sights and sounds which give you a window into the secrets of the African bush. Back at the lodge, view wildlife from the safety and comfort of our well-positioned hide. If all this calls for time to just let the experience sink in ... take a dip in the swimming pool, just relax in an armchair or enjoy a cool drink at the bar. ... more   less
