We stayed at Kusudalweni in january 2017, and if you are considering going to Kruger National park on a safari, please do not consider to stay anywhere else than at Kusudalweni. Why would you? It´s absolutely perfect! You will have a magnificent, private lodge all to yourself, with a big bathroom, indoor - and outdoor shower, king-size bed, and floor-to...

We spent 4 nights at Dave and Maria's amazing lodge in September 2016 while traveling in South Africa for our honeymoon. Our experience could not have been more enjoyable and memorable. The property is clean, comfortable, and beautifully designed. The hospitality of Maria and Dave (and Jessie the dog!) made us feel like we were at home, and we enjoyed...

The Kusanweldani Lodge really is True African Bush Hospitality at its very best! My partner and I cannot express our gratitude to Dave & Maria enough for a truly magnificent stay. We arrived after quite a stressful journey through JoBurg airport to be met at Hoedspruit airport by one of our hosts Maria, who arrived with much needed cool drinks...

This was our first time in Africa, and my family of 4 stayed here for three nights in December and had the most wonderful time. The whole place is just over a year old and is brilliantly designed and beautiful. The rooms themselves are luxuriously comfortable and everything you could need is provided. I loved the little jar of delicious...

The bedrooms in the villa have beautiful views onto the savannah and the staff are the most friendly I've ever met. The cooks and their food are extraordinary and they make you feel like part of a family. Dave and Maria are extremely friendly and the activities even include walking with white lions. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We can't say enough positive things about this hotel!! I am certain you will be happy with a choice to stay here. It is beautiful and really well designed so you feel like you are in a luxurious private hut in the bush but you're actually a 2 min walk to the pool/main lodge. The activities list is fantastic, Dave...

Dave and Maria make you feel right at home at Kusudalweni with their friendly greetings, cozy atmosphere around den and dinner table, and beautiful surroundings. But this is better than home because the food is delicious and ample, drink glasses are never empty, rooms are clean with fresh linens and luxurious decor, and wildlife amble just outside the hot tub....
