Enjoyed the peace and quiet location of this self catering cottage. The cottage is comfortable, if not particularly modern. Everything that was expected was available and the service from the owner Mike was exceptional and friendly and made the stay so much more enjoyable. It was frustrating being confined to the unit, perhaps it would be an improvement if more...

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are of course concerned about your frustration. In the information sent to you by mail we did advise that we offer game drives; but perhaps having been in the Kruger, you did not receive this information. We trust that on your next visit you will make use of our offering game drives,...

Great lodge. We absolutely loved to stay two nights here. Great hosts, great bungalow, great game drives and very nice hosts. As it has only two rooms it is a very private and relaxing experience. Would definitely come back.

There's little I can add that hasn't already been said previously in the many many positive reviews of Muweti. We've had an amazing time. We stayed for five nights of sheer bliss. True I'm still a bit of a scaredy cat as far as those elephants are concerned, but I've seen so many animals and learned so much. Mike had...

If you want up close and personal this is the place. Up close because the animals came right up to the water hole below my chalet and the elephants with their trunks over the back fence. Personal because you are treated with utmost care by two very gracious hosts who feed you excellently, sit with you and share a wealth...

I admit that I'm a bit late on my review here, but I just can't help myself to go back sometimes and think about this stay with Mike and his wife. Elephant watching for breakfast, embedded in nature! Just overall really great stay!!

My daughter and I were very lucky when choosing "Muweti bush Lodge" for our first trip to south Africa. I would like to find new beautiful words to praise the place and especially Laura and Mike. We found comfort, beauty in the lodge, knowledge, cleverness, humor and a warmth of the heart in our hosts...And yes two years of drought...
