Warm welcome, great location, friendly staff and fantastic game drives with an experienced and interactive tracker and guide. We wanted a smaller venue, with not too many rooms and guests, a personalised approach and the possibility to enjoy quality time with our family between the game drives. Kuname has it all. The kids (and we) loved it!

Travelling solo the Kuname team and indeed fellow guests made the stay a warm and unforgettable experience. I stayed 4 nights which on balance was quite arduous with 2 game drives per day. I think 3 days would be optimum.

Both our guide Peter and tracker Moscow did everything possible to make sure we saw big 5 which we did and so many other animals. Their knowledge was really good, they were fun and mixed great gin and tonics. Our room was clean and...

This was our first time in South Africa and a first time going on safari. We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay or a better experience. The lodge was elegant, meals prepared very nice.

Very caring & friendly welcome and throughout the stay. The room is a bit small but the view on the river is very nice as you can spot some animals. The ranger team was knowledgeable and fun and made all safaris great moments. Highly recommended!

Game drives were amazing, the guide and tracker could not be faulted and they really made our honeymoon very special, The lodge itself is lovely. The food was plentiful but not the highest standard of cooking. Check the cost of drinks before you accept one!
