    We had the best time of our honeymoon in Makweti. Everything was incredible, the safari, the food and the people. It is a very recommendable place. The landscape is incredible and the rangers are the best of the area. Best of the best!

    Mike, thanks for your notes. I am looking for a lodge in the area or perhaps as far away as Madikwe. My concern is that we do not see much wildlife (lions in particular) on this once in a lifetime trip. Is it worth the extra drive/flight to go to a more well known reserve such as those near Kruger or Madikwe? We would be visiting for three nights in mid-June and are already booked at Ants Nest nearby for several nights.
