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. The lodge has newer rooms that are nicer, but...

We stayed in the hotel section of the resort over 2 nights for a short family getaway after the New Year's rush was over. After an initial wobble when we were given a room that was already occupied, we were installed in our two rooms which were very comfortable. The children love the general ambience of the resort including the...

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.

The accommodation is very well appointed although a bit cramped for a family of 4 with the kids beds right next to the mail bed.

There is no doubt that the Kwa Maritane Resort offers a unique combination of 4 Star luxury with native bush wildlife. The hotel, located within the Pilansberg Reserve, allows you to view uncaged, wild animals from the restaurant deck while having lunch and sipping your beer or wine. Right below you is a watering hole, regularly visited by elephant, buck,...

We spent 3 days at the lodge with family and friends around new year. Location is excellent, lodge is clean, food is decent. Rangers are professional and friendly, they go beyond the standard duty. Staff in the restaurant is nice but very slow. No matter, we are on vacation aren't we ?

We recently spent a few days at the Kwa Maritane Bush lodge in Pilanesberg. Initially, we were a bit anxious, as we normally go camping or stay at small "boutique lodges". But from the first moment this place felt good. Very attentive staff, spacious rooms and plenty to do for the children in between the game drives. A special mention...

This bush lodge is a massive almost "theme park" commercial set up. Please do not come here for a romantic bush experience. I have been away to smaller bush lodges with more authenticity.

Dear Fiona k, Thank you for the time taken to provide us with this feedback. We do apologise for not meeting your expectations in terms of the capacity our resort can accommodate. Kwa Maritane consists of 90 hotel rooms and a Timeshare section as well and therefore evidently sets us apart from the smaller bush lodges with more authenticity. In...

Fantastic place to see the wildlife and have great game drives. Although it's a bit mass tourism you still can have nice viewings. The whole place is getting a bit outdated but it's still good enough. Beautiful nature surrounds the place so all the conditions are given. The staff just cannot grew up to the challenge. They try it hard...
