2 things sit heavily with me as I write this: 1. Reception- check in procedure is applying, some training of the staff needs to be done as you basically hand your card over, they swipe and give you a key.

Kwa Maritane "the place of the rock" located just in the South East corner of Pilanesberg national park. The venue is superb with spacious delicately furnished rooms. Two very nice pools and the restaurant faces a big area where various animals pass during the day. Zebras, warthogs and a baby elephant passed by at breakfast one morning! The crown of... More

This is the fifth time we have visited this magical lodge within the Pilansberg. The staff are all lovely and very welcoming. It is a wonderful place to stay and this trip we saw lion, elephant, rhino, hyena, kudu and warthog all at the hotel's own hide.

This is one of the best time share resorts we have been to. The view over the national park was amazing. It is something special to be able to have a BBQ whilst a herd of elephants wonder past. The tunnel to the hide by the watering hole was amazing, we saw so many animals close up, and having cameras... More
