We had a wonderful time at Kusudalweni! Maria, David and Jessica (their lovely dog), the owners, made us feel exclusive, staying with us during our free time at the Lodge, chatting at the bar and having dinner together with the guests. Their staff is also great! Each and every metal we had was perfectly prepared, their employees are all gentle,...

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...

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.

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.

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!
