We took our 8 and 3yr old sons with us on a weekend and what an amazing and wonderful eexperience we had. Our guide Chad was very experienced, and accommodating. Our boys enjoyed the game drives and spotting so many different animals. The highlight was the Rhino and the Lions. An experience to last a life time and right on our door steps.

I have made a best decision to listen to my friend Sakhumzi Klaas owner of GMA TeamBuild when he suggested Inkwenkwezi Lodge. I have enjoyed all my 2 days and given a chance I can come back anytime, rooms, food, safari all that experience was epic. Hey and the fact that you don't have TV makes it very perfect for couples to talk till they sleep.

What we appreciated Most about our stay at Inkwenkwezi Private Game reserve was the personal touches from The owners Graham And Keith Stanton. On arrival, Graham welcomed and checked us in and Keith transported us to our Valley Camp where we met Our Ranger Willem. The food was great, Our treatment from arrival to departure was 5 star and I would recommend Inkwenkwezi to anyone, locally and from abroad, as a MUST visit destination to go To when traveling to Or through East London. I promise, you will not regret it!
