Travellers' Choice
KwaMbili Game Lodge provides an authentic safari experience at an affordable price. KwaMbili is siutated in the Thornybush Game Reserve near Hoedspruit, within the Greater Kruger area. The reserve is home to the Big Five as well as an abundance of other game and bird species. This means good sightings, either while out on game drive or on foot during bush walks. KwaMbili means "Place of Two" in the local Shangaan language.Our knowledgeable rangers will introduce you to the tracks, movements, sights and sounds which give you a window into the secrets of the African bush. Back at the lodge, view wildlife from the safety and comfort of our well-positioned hide. If all this calls for time to just let the experience sink in ... take a dip in the swimming pool, just relax in an armchair or enjoy a cool drink at the bar.

KWA Mbili exceeded my expectations on every level: warm welcome, wonderful helpful staff; excellent and exceptionally knowledgable guides on all flora and fauna! Although I was a solo traveller I was made to feel part of the family and was given every consideration. The little extras were greatly appreciated especially the early evening gourmet dinner in the hide to view the nocturnal animals parade past as if on command! I was fortunate enough to see most of the predators and other wild life inhabitants even the more rare pack of wild dogs! I was constantly in awe of the expertise of the tracker Sepho and the guides Kalyan and Andi - all top class - yes it was their “job” but passion and enthusiasm are priceless!

Although we only had time for a short 2 night weekend visit, everything exceeded our expectations. The food and accommodation was excellent and although the bush was still thick after good summer rainfalls, we saw plenty wildlife. Highlight for me was to see unfolding around our game drive vehicle ,an unhurried lion stalk and failed assault by 4 lions on a herd of impala!

What an amazing experience from the time we arrived until we left 3 days later. The food was superb and catered for our every need. The room looked onto the Kruger and we we definitely spoilt with the sounds of the wild at night. Our guide and tracker were awesome and took time to increase our knowledge of the bush.

We loved everything about our stay and KwaMbili is a very special place. All of the staff were fantastic, our ranger, Brandon has amazing enthusiasm and it is clear that he loves what he does. Eddy and Leonae are also brilliant. Leonae will make a great ranger. The food is out of this world, better than we could ever have imagined. Sundowner drinks are a fab touch. We loved eating in different areas of the lodge every evening, the braai and dinner in the hide were particularly special. The blueberry muffins and steaks are the best we’ve ever had. The serving staff are also very lovely people. The experience of staying in the tent added so much fun to the trip and the outside shower was heaven. All of the ornaments, furniture and decor are so well thought through and create a wonderful atmosphere. We loved relaxing in the lounge too! The attention to detail really did add to our stay. Being welcomed back from each safari with warm towels, making sure we could take great photos on each game drive, the water bottles, the lights being turned on for us in the tent at night and the torch to look over the waterhole from the hide after dusk. Everything was so well thought through and we loved every minute. An unforgettable experience. I’d recommend KwaMbili to anyone in a heartbeat!
