Our family had the best holiday in years at Kwa Maritane this July. Great wildlife sightings right in front of our unit including 3 of the 'big five'. The staff and management were fantastic as well, going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Back next year again!!! Can't wait!!!

We visited the cabana units the last week of June 2016 in Kwa Maritane. I can honestly rate the lodge 4 star, but where can I rate the guests? One should really be able to rate guests in a specific unit on a specific date as well. They make the stay pleasant or a nightmare. I suggest management should inform...

Attended a conference. The lodge is set in a great location in the midst of one of the game reserves and a two hour drive from Johannesburg/Pretoria. The conference facilities are nice with good audio-visuals. The hotel rooms are a five minute walk from the conference setting and have an African feel. Bed, bathrooms etc are clean and comfortable.

Our stay was approximately three days long . The highlight of our stay was indeed the safari.

The accommodation is very comfortable yet unpretentious. Facilities are very well maintained. The hide is awesome and having a webcam which can be viewed from your unit a real bonus. Staff are friendly and professional but not intrusive. Upstairs balcony is just right for early morning coffee while watching the warthogs play

The lodgings are not fancy or modern but we love coming back to Kwa Maritane every few years. The resort has an unfussy, relaxed vibe and we enjoyed self catering. Lots of game out the back of our unit, at the hide, and seen on game drives. Service is impeccable. Good proximity to Sun City.

We first visited Kwa Maritane 19 years ago and had a great experience then - it lived up to our memories again this week when we stayed with family.
