Simply a privilege - but not safe neither from the wildlife or the locals (your life is often in the balance from those on 2 legs as well as 4) high risk his reward and will be lost soon no doubt to mans greed

We saw all the Big 5 in a very short space of time. Unlike Kruger you can off road here and have much more chance of seeing animals.

Spent 3 nights visitng this area and it was a real highlight of our 2 week trip. Outstanding game viewing, leopards on 5/5 game drives. Big 5. A real gem of a place

I cannot express how great my experience was at Idube, I have a lifetime of memories from the 4 nights we stayed there. Highly recommended.

Idube was amazing. Enjoyed getting into the bush, no matter what the terrain is liked to see all the animals. The lodge/room was beautiful, food exceptional and the staff wonderful. A must visit!!

While the lodge was nice, we much preferred their sister lodge, Lukimbi in Kruger. You're guaranteed good sightings at the private reserves, but we didn't think our guide was as invested in making the trip special for us (such as working hard to give us...More
