The visit to this game reserve was just outstanding , the facilities were first rate the staff couldnt do enough for us. The visit to the elephant sanctuary was one that will live long in my memory. I recommend this as a must see for all visitors.

The Game Reserve is excellent. We did the Game drive in the evening and saw so many different animals & the next round was in the early morning - totally worth it!! The stay was wonderful too & the cuisine lip smacking!!

Game drive was great with knowledgeable staff as well as visit to predatory camp. Complimentary breakfast and lunch was scrumptious - really enjoyable trip for the whole family. We would have loved to stay longer

In their website they had wrong GPRS coordinates, tell me how would you get there without directions. We called and told them that we felt we are being lost and we are using their coordinates to be told that no they are wrong. Who does that heee, so we took the first national park with elephants that we can get... More

Dear Daphny We are sorry to hear of your experience and that you were unable to visit us. As per our conversation, the co-ordinates which you had inserted were incorrect and we resorted to "ancient directions" after we exhausted all other methods, and after you were still not able to find us, as we are situated directly off the national...

The three weeks I spent volunteering at Kwantu were incredible! The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable, the accommodation was modern and cleaned daily and it was so easy to make friends with all the other volunteers! The activities we were taking part in often involved some serious hard work – digging, chopping down trees and fence clearing in the... More

The elephant sanctuary has 4 female elephants which take you for a ride (rather short), during which there are animals to be seen. Lovely landscapes. One of the guides takes pictures with your camera so you can have a nice souvenir of this unforgettable experience without worrying. Feeding the elephants is great fun
