We stayed for 3 nights at the Manor House at the Kuname River Lodge with family and it was a wonderful experience. The game drives were excellent and the staff hospitality was fantastic. Experiencing wildlife in an open vehicle was something we will cherish forever.

Our stay at Kuname Lodge was absolutely perfect. The lodge, the staff, and the food was all top notch. Anita and Andre were wonderful hosts and our tracker and guide, Sandy and Peter, did a fantastic job with showing us all the wildlife in the reserve. We will definitely be staying here again and we have been recommending Kuname Lodge...

Really nice accommodations. Staff is outstanding as is the food. Game drives were great. Tracker and guide were very knowledgeable and made sure we saw the Big 5. This was a highlight of our trip to Africa.

Will never forget this trip but African Travel could have been more helpful with packing and travel information....and do it in a much more timely fashion. Could a traveler called the Lodge directly before coming with questions?

My husband and I just visited Kuname for three glorious nights and can truly say it was a once in a lifetime experience! The lodge itself is fantastic - clean, luxurious, very ' safari-chic.' The rooms have outdoor baths and showers (in addition to an indoor shower) which were absolute heaven in between morning and evening drives. And the drives...
