Paid the venue a fleeting visit as part of a conference. Expected a world class venue but came away quite disappointed. Staff were friendly and grounds immaculate. The excellence ends there. From cockroaches in the room to showers that spray everywhere to dirty (before the start of the drive) game drive vehicles with faulty seat belts, ... and the list...

It was OK, nothing spectacular, having been on safari in a few different places, the game drives offered by Kwa Maritane were the least personal and always in large groups of 20+. Our first experience was with 'Andre' who after 5 minutes drive got up and shouted at 80% of the bus for being selfish and having no respect for...

I stayed at Kwa Maritime with a friend for 3 nights in October. The room was lovely, food was very good. We enjoyed the game drives and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. BBQ evening was a little disappointing but overall would recommend to friends for a short break.

When you check in, you enter a state of calm only interupted by close flying birds and the excitments of seeing wild animals entering the front yard. The facilities are amazing and the food is good, local and cheap ( the buffet is amazing). You are able to drive your own safari or hire a guide (i recommend driving yourself,...

When I heard "Bush Lodge", I didn't know what to expect. It was my first trip to Africa and I envisioned a lodge in the bush. Well, Kwa Maritane, located on the slope of a volcano was 4 star all the way. The food was delicious, service was great, and the game drives were right on time with extremely highly...

The GM and staff of Kwa Maritane has made my international group's experience a dream come true. Delegates from 75 different countries were uninamous in their praise of the outstanding friendly service. The GM Patrick Serekwale was hands-on and always around with a friendly ' what can we do to help' attitude.

You go here for the animals and they don't disappoint: giraffe, elephant, lion, warthog, all kinds of antelope, zebra - sometimes in families, sometimes solo - they're beautiful and make you want to sing songs from "The Lion King" as you bounce along the rough roads in your game drive vehicle.

We recently had a AGM at Kwa Maritane, the staff was great, very helpfull and polite. Rooms was very spacious and i really enjoyed the stay. The food was excellent, although they kept repeating the same dishes every day. I think they could have themes to the daily dishes to improve on the variety.
