We enjoyed an activity filled weekend away with good friends and our boys last weekend. There really are so many activities from which to choose so you could stay a week and still never get bored. We loved our self drive game drive in the Pilanesberg where we had exceptional sightings. We had a blast at the Valley of Waves too. However, we didn’t really need to go anywhere, our self catering unit was spacious and comfy with a heated pool . The breakfast in the restaurant was delicious. The kiddies pool with slide and jungle gym area kept the kids entertained for hours while we relaxed. However, most of all the friendliness of the staff bears mention as being exceptional. Every single person we encountered was friendly and helpful. It was such a pleasure to visit and we will be back

Less than 10 mins drive from Sun City is this relatively large lodge, in a beautiful location. Easy to self drive into the park, or take their guided options (on private trips or a cheaper mega bus option!). They have a large hide you can sit in and watch the animals...with a 100m or so underground walk to get to, which is awesome. They live stream footage to the rooms and bars so you can see when to go. This is a nice touch. Similarly, the breakfast area looks over a small water area and we saw elephants and zebra on our short stay, amongst other things, very close up. Downside of all this wildlife is that baboons do get into the grounds - so keep an eye on your kids if you have them. They chase them out when they can, but they are around. This was a family friendly spot, so a bit noisier than I'd like with wailing kids, but I prefer peace when trying to watch the animals. Service was a bit rubbish in the restaurant (sloooooow) and phoning to get an iron from housekeeping was an ordeal. Work to be done on customer service and positive attitude from a few staff I would say. Rooms are large and well appointed. A pleasant stay in a good location just inside the park. It's not a small lodge, but it still feels "lodgey".

Absolute BLISS!!!! The team was amazing and very professional. We got to relax and be pampered and enjoyed nice cocktail drinks and some animal watching from the reserve. The restaurant also provides a beautiful ambience, the staff there is well trained and very attentive. Overall, the service exceeded expectations

The perfect end to our fantastic vacay in South Africa. We spent our last 2 nights at the Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge. We loved every bit of being there..the reception staff were very courteous..our check in was done seamlessly. The rooms..we had a studio was clean spacious..and we loved the balcony area. We did get a chance to see many animals who wandered quite close to our apartment. The breakfast and dinner was great too..good variety and flavours..smiling and friendly staff ..all made our stay simply fabulous!

Such a wonderful hotel in the Pilansberg just 2 hours from Pretoria. We were treated to daily visits from elephant families, Zebra, Impala, Warthogs...the secret hide lookout is a real treat. Food delicious!

A consistently good lodge offering a comfortable and relaxing stay. The Cabanas are well designed and clean. The Safari experience was not the best mainly due to the type of safari truck they use. There should also be a minimum age for children going on the safari drives. At R540 per person it is not cheap and one would prefer to have a peaceful and relaxed drive.

As much as I love Kwa Maritane and its beautiful creatures I was really angry and disappointed by my experience at the hide. The hotel needs to have someone to police the noise of self entitled, rude bullies who talk loud, encourage their kids to talk, laugh, shout and sing "baby shark" as loud as they want and who basically have no respect for other people, the hide and the animals. I told them to keep quiet and was bullied and sworn at by the gentleman. Kwa Maritane management please can you do something about this issue? It's gotten a lot worse over the last 3 years. Other than that it's awesome.

Game drive is great very entertaining exciting because we came very close to The big 5 except the Leopard.We experience seems like we could touched them by our hands especially the Lions our car closer and closer to them but they still ignored us no manners of attacking or scared of us.

We had a great 4 days here in June. Studio room was lovely and sitting area outside peaceful and beautiful. Staff were all helpful and pleasant, choice of food was excellent. We had 4 game drives and all drivers were very good, informative and keen to show as many animals as possible Definitely recommend and definitely hope to go back.

Fantastic experience to sleep in middle of Pilanesberg in excellent residence, fantastic restaurant and very friendly staff. and 4 very nice game drives with professional rangers!👌🏻🦁🐘🐆 Drop on/ drop off airport via break away is easy travelling
