Our suite was private, secluded, extremely well furnished with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and wild life. It was complete with small pool and outside veranda. The main "hotel" building was beautifully furnished in typical South African style. We went on guided landrover style safaris every day with our fantastic guide from 6.00am till 10.00am and then later from...

An experience to be believed. Sighting as we have never seen before. A gentle walk in the bush where watching a couple of termites brought so much pleasure. Excellent, delicious gourmet food with fresh veggies. All presented by staff who could not have done more for you all with the biggest smiles. Truly a memorable experience. It could not have...

Our ranger on this trip, Doc (an absolute gentleman) and his tracker Monde (such an impressive young man), made every game drive memorable. Game viewing is our prime motive for travelling from Australia to Kwandwe, a private game reserve with an abundance of wildlife, lovingly maintained by all who live here. Such excitement every time we began a drive....simply not...

We stayed in the Great Fish River lodge and from the moment we arrived we felt the genuine warmth of all of the staff.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble. The staff are exemplary and almost anticipate one's requirements. The food was delicious if somewhat filling and the accommodation outstanding. We would recommend Lodges 1 and 2. Yes, it's a bit of a walk but the wild life you will see in the early morning...
