As soon as we arrived we fell in love with this place. Such an amazing setting and the view from the chalet is incredible. Not to mention the deck with the seating area and swimming pool, especially when elephants drop by the waterhole at the other side of the fence (it happened 3 times for us!). You really feel like you're in another world.

Laura and Mike are great hosts and we enjoyed hearing their stories around the campfire. Maria is an amazing cook and Reinhardt a very knowledgeable and friendly guide.

All of our game drives were interesting and on our first night Mike took us on an extra mini-drive when he got message about 6 lions that were spotted in the reserve. A really intense and memorable moment!

After 3 nights we were sad to leave and can't wait to come back. Thanks for the amazing stay!

PS: There's also some great wifi, should you need it.

Overall it was a great stay. The host were very nice and accommodating. We miss understood the self accommodation aspect and they provided dinner the first night of our stay after a long 7hr drive from Joberg. The lodge itself is very clean and has a fully equipped kitchen (take salt tho lol) and they even provide mosquito nets above the beds which I thought was awesome. You should be aware that The lodge is very far from the main entrance to Kruger Park in Phalapowa which was the only downside (self inflicted). Check your distances very well before booking. There are no stores or facilities within a 45min drive. Go fully prepared.

Thank you for this wonderful review. We do, however, send DETAILED descriptions beforehand to all our guests who book the self catering cottage, which states (in bold letters) that the cottage is self catering only; also we do advise that there are no shopping facilities on the reserve and that the nearest shops are 32 km away in the same description. We are thankful nonetheless that your overall experience was good, and one day. Kind regards from all at Muweti.

We had the pleasure of staying at Muweti Bush Lodge for our third time just prior to Christmas 2017. While we were initially disappointed that Laura and Mike were on holiday, we met Reinhardt and Maria who were managing the lodge. To our delight all aspects of the stellar service that we have come to expect did not miss a beat during our five-day stay; that includes the hospitality and warmth. All the meals were excellent; love the fillets, boerewors and the salmon too, Maria :)
We saw many elephants both at the lodge and on the game rides with Reinhardt. Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, jackals and impala were plentiful. I have a newfound respect for the impala after Reinhardt’s game drive discussions. We stayed in the tented chalet off the pool deck, the bed is still super comfortable. As always it was a relaxing stay and the perfect way to end our visit to South Africa. Already looking forward to a return trip. Cheers!

Only three chalets, perfectly equipped, large swimming pool, best wifi in SA, quiet, excellent steaks, giraffes and kudus all around, best service and best owner with his wife.
There is nothing more to say...
