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....

I had the opportunity to stay at KwaMbili Game Lodge earlier this year, and all I can say is that all my expectations were surpassed. The lodge itself is special and the accommodation is more than comfortable! I stayed in one of their luxury tents at the bottom of the camp and really felt like I was nestled away in...

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
