Safely situated along the Mozambique meandering Route 71, on the Big 5 doorstep of the Kruger National Park, Kilima Private Game Reserve and Spa welcome tourists and locals alike to relax and enjoy the beautiful Murchison Mountain Range, scarce game breeds and inspiring activities on offer. We have 20 luxury room options, wheelchair-friendly, family-suites, honeymoon and our ultra luxurious King suite, to name but a few. All our newly refurbished rooms are en-suite with a view of the lush bushveld and sparkling pool. We dearly value each guest and want to tailor your visit with us. Included in our rate is a game drive and a selection of treatments offered at our beautifully unique Kukura Wellness Spa. For the romantics we have a special private bush-picnic, and for the adventurous, we offer a walk to the Mapungubwe-linked ruins. We boast our very own huge Baobab which is thought to be over 600 years old. From the Baobab Deck you can view the sunset after your game drive before you return to the lodge where you’ll be spoiled with a gourmet 4-course dinner prepared by a professional chef. We invite you to experience our warm hospitality that echo’s through the style and flavour of each and every one of our guests. Kilima Private Game Reserve and Spa… Courage above and beyond. ​A friendly reminder that a daily Conservation Fee of R150 will be charged per person. Only by contributing can funds be raised to help conserve the natural heritage of the reservation's fauna and flora.

Loves the Lodge and Game Farm feeling, Kukura Wellness Spa was phenomenal. The food out of this world, and the staff so friendly! I love staying at Kilima!! The family Legacy is clear and you see and feel it everywhere. Two Springbuck Chefs, serving the most spectacular foods, spekboom chutneys, ice cream and palette cleansers!

Our recent stay at Kilima was a real joy and the team and facilities are of outstanding quality. The star of the show is the quality of the food - Ed (a chef with years of experience in Dubai) made sure that every dish was world-class and magical taste - from breakfast to dinner! The Spa (Marcelle an her girls) was fabulous and not to be missed! The service of staff (Andries & Eunicia) was fantastic and under leadership of Resort Manager Lizelle made our stay worthwhile!

Extremely disappointed. The camp is very far from the lodge on a dirt road that requires 4x4. Many inconsistencies with communication. Book in date was messed up. (Although we had e-mailed confirmation) Website is extremely misleading. Pool deck has several broken planks with sharp edges. Very dirty and poorly maintained. Incompetent front of house staff. The only positive was the attitude of the cleaning ladies. All 3 bed bases in the tent were broken.
