Really nice lobby, amazing staff and BEST SPOT EVER during the lunch time ! There is a water hole there and elephant are coming to drink, it's a amazing experience. Rooms are quite old fashion now, really spacious but would need a refreshment!

We had high expectations for Kwa Maritane and they unfortunately fell short. The spa treatments and staff were great, but the food ordered from the restaurant wasn't great at all. I'd recommend going for a morning spa treatment and possibly finding somewhere else in the area to eat.

Where can you stay in a game lodge that shares a fence with Pilansberg National Park? Why that would be Kwa Maritane, of course. Great breakfasts and dinners, amazing game drives, and the perfect location. Well done!

Truly splendid... A very much relaxing break. Room was very good, staff were excellent and surroundings were to die for. Very much value for money. An added bonus is that sun city is just down the road and you can pay to enter for the day. I'd recommend the morning safari and watch the sun rise. I hope to return...
