We cannot recommend this Hotel at all. First of all: the game drives and guide are good, very nice and competent. No complains about this. However, the hotel was not good at all. Upon arrival, first thing after being welcomed was the fact that not as many as booked game drives were planned for our stay. After discussing over ten... More

Being in a private game reserve offers you the best way to get so close to animals without having more cars and people on your way. The lodge is very nice, my room was huge... More

Having experienced Kwantu from both a guest (volunteer) in 2014 and guiding internship position in the summer of 2016, I can say that I have seen both the inner and outer workings of this establishment. The first thing that strikes you as you arrive is not only being in a beautiful country like South Africa and living in the town... More

From the moment we arrived at Kwantu we were impressed by the friendliness of the staff. Big smiles all around. The breakfast that we had before our game drive was delicious. Our game ranger was very funny, friendly and knowledgable. We returned to the lodge for a 5 star buffet lunch. We also enjoyed a walk around the town and... More

Welcome was good, didn't see much animals saw more in my backyard, drove around and saw footprints and droppings, pretty big game park and not many animals they need to invest in more animals.

Dear Nigel Thank you for reviewing your experience at Kwantu Private Game Reserve. It is unfortunate that you did not see more wildlife. African wildlife are elusive and like other private and national game reserve we can’t always guarantee wildlife sightings. Kwantu is richly endowed with wildlife including the African big 5 as evinced by social media channel and photo... More

Stayed at Kwantu for a weekend in August and absolutely loved it!! Staff were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Being so close to the big cats was truly special.
