The rooms are beautiful with an outdoor bathroom where you can take a shower while watching the river below. All the staff was very kind and cheerful. Safaris were amazing. Our children loved seeing the animals move freely

Perfect lodge for a peaceful and relaxing stay. The room is cozy. The food is delicious. The staff is very kind. The safari was great. The guide was very friendly. We enjoyed being on the couch on the patio looking over the river.

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. The quality of the food, especially fruits and vegetables exceeded my expectations. The lodge hosts were pleasant and helpful. Our game guide...

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!

We had a great stay at Kuname. Everything was fabulous. We only had one issue. On our first night the air conditioner stopped working and staff promptly had a brand new one installed for the next night. The highlight was the game drives. We were able to see the Big 5 and then some. Definitely exceeded our expectations.

The Kuname Lodge offered us everything we could ever wish a safari trip to be and more. It was our first time to Africa and we would love to go back. The lodge is so quiet and only houses a few guests at a time, which makes for a personalised experience. The level of service offered by Sammy and the...

our family spent 3 nights at Kuname. Friendly staffs, beautiful property, great food, We saw all Big 5 plus many other animals during the 3 day stay with total six game drives. The property has only 5 rooms and serve 10 guests at one time. It is great, if you don't want to be with a big crowd and appreciate...

We were self driving all through Kruger National Park, which was incredible. We ended up at Kuname simply because the luxury lodge that we booked at Kruger didn't have the room and Expedia's affiliate booked us at Kuname. Now, with that said, we were open minded and made our way to Kuname. Upon arrival the owner gave us a quick...

Dear Joshua, Many thanks for your comments. I have had the opportunity to consider your feedback and review the response from our General Manager, Anita, who was your host for the one night you stayed with us. Firstly, I must note for the record that the owners of the lodge were not present on the date of you arrival and...
