Room was excellent - well serviced and cleaned. Amenities are very good. Restaurant and bar were excellent both in terms of quality as well as service from the staff. The management and staff went out of their way to help us with the organisation of a special family birthday celebration.The event proved to be exceptionally well done with lots of care, detail and pride going in to it - the food was spectacular. I get the impression that they really do strive to do their very best for clients at the lodge.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights last month. The staff were a little grumpy on the whole, not sure why, but the facilities and overall experience of the stay was brilliant. Lovely bedroom and the buffet meals in the restaurant were top dollar. Get a table outside overlooking the waterhole and go to the hide along a 180 metre tunnel from the restaurant. We ventured on both morning and afternoon game drives. The rangers were very experienced and we saw the big five, except for water buffalo, at close range plus masses of buck, giraffe, warthog, zebra and other animals. We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: Ask for one not too far from the restaurant and reception.

We spent two night at this hotel last september. The rooms were clean and service was good.break fast was ok but not perfect.The best thing about this hotel is the water hole in front of the hotel which atracts the animals. We saw lots of them just by sitting at our table and eatig our food.there was another water hole a bit further that could be reached from an under groung tunnel.we lots of animals by this water hole even we had the chance to see lions.we enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Donot forget to enjoy usg spa.

Room Tip: A room with the view of water hole

We have been at the Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge restaurant for dinner and came back for breakfast the next day: The dinner buffet was perfect and also the breakfast buffet at the terrace. You could even see animals from the terrace. Really great food and very friendly staff – one of the best dinner and breakfast we had during our ZA tour. Definitely a recommendation when you are at the great Pilanesberg NP!
