The personal attention of an experienced game ranger and trip into the lions' enclosure was a highlight. Service overall was excellent. There is plenty to do at the game reserve and we look forward to returning for a longer stay. Our only concern was that the private game reserve's amazing natural beauty could better be matched by its guests' areas: our tent had been damaged by an earlier storm. More could be made of the grounds near the reception area. As could the pool area above the lodges, which has a fantastic view, but looks run-down.

Stayed in well appointed safari tents with very comfortable beds, ate large quantities of really good food and were attentively accompanied on bush drives and animal interactions by the knowledgeable Byron who patiently scoured the estate for elusive buffalo. The dirt roads can be physically challenging even just seated in a Land Rover so not suited for those with mobility problems but we found it added to the adventure. There is a wide variety of game, the big five, birds, snakes and lizards galore if you know how to look for them as well as a small pool and the opportunity to canoe, hike and meet your fellow travelers at meal times. We had a great time and although the elephants are not free we felt that Inkwenkwesi offered a decent compromise. Our only suggestion would be for the lions to be made to work harder for their food but no doubt being so well fed facilitates safer access to them at close quarters. We would definitely return.

Inkwenkwezi might not be the largest or plushest game reserve in the area but this is more than made up for by the experience as a whole. Our young ranger, Brendon, was quite superb - very personable, knowledgable, attentive and thoughtful. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we were able to arrange all-inclusive quad biking and game drives, elephant and cheetah interactions, at times to suit us. The tented Valley Camp was private, comfortable and very 'out of Africa', and nothing beats waking to the dawn chorus of monkeys and birds on the deck. Excellent food produced by very friendly ladies in a perfect setting. Shame the pool was out of action - would have been nice to squeeze in a refreshing dip between all the action.

Excellent accommodation & food. Had the 'glam' in glamping with all mod cons, swimming pool and fine dining. superb views from private, secluded balconies in idyllic setting. Friendly & helpful staff especially our guide Jacques who was very attentive & knowledgeable. We saw white rhino, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, wildebeest, warthog, various antelope, and others. Being in close contact with lion & cheetah was unforgettable, and the elephant back safari was unmissable! An amazing experience overall, wish we could have stayed for longer.

Inkwenkwezi may not be the biggest game reserve in South Africa, but it is certainly value for money and is big enough to keep you occupied for several days.
All meals, game drives and most activities are included in the price.
The valley camp tents are all private and you would not realise that anyone else was staying there, as you cannot see any other accomodation from your tent.
You are allocated a personal guide who will take you on game drives and organise any other activities you fancy. He will also pick you up and take you for meals in the restaurant (unless you fancy walking and passing the local nyala, wildebeast and monkeys en-route!.)
The food is excellent and plentiful.
We did the elephant & the cheetah interactions and also quad biking (this was a little scary, but fun).
The reserve is big enough to feel like you are in the wild & we saw plenty of wildlife, including giraffe, rhino, zebra & the infamous white lions (though they do have there own, fairly large enclosure).
We didn't find the buffallo, though they are there somewhere.
Just one star deducted, as the swimming pool furniture needs upgrading (though i was reliably told that they were on order).
A special mention to our guide Byron who was excellent & also to the elephant handlers who were also very good.
