We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Kuname lodge. We saw 4 of the big 5 within 2 hours on our 1st drive mainly because Peter, the ranger, was excellent and could track the animals so easily. The staff in the lodge were superb. Laid back and attentive at the same time. We want to return!!! Bethan and Tony

Everything was just better than what I expected !!! Peter, the Ranger, was really a 100% regarding to his knowledge about the game reserva & the animals. During the 4 safaris I did in 2 days he reached us to show lions, elefants, leopard, rhino, hypo, etc. The food at the lodge was really superb.
