My boyfriend Andrew and I were fortunate enough to have our second visit to Makweti on the 1st of Jan 2021. We didnt think it was possible, but it was even better than the first trip! The food was incredible, the drives were lovely with lots to see. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and remembered us from the 1st visit, making it so personal and lovely to go back again. Thank you to Colin for being so helpful and tending to our every need while there, as well as all of the other friendly staff. I would definitely recommend Makweti to any couple looking for a romantic, private, secluded getaway with personal, hands on service. Thank you again Makweti for an unforgettable experience. Love from 2 happy customers, Demi & Andrew.
Second time I have visited Makweti with my girlfriend and we loved it even more than the first experience. Couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable stay - food was amazing, staff as friendly as ever, our room was beautiful (and very romantic) and we had some amazing sightings. No better way to start the new year than watching a female cheetah with her four cubs. We will definitely be going back very soon. Thanks to Colin for keeping us entertained, looking after us and for your insightful knowledge of all things Bush related. We loved our drives with you! Hope to see you all soon. Andy
My partner and I spend 5 magical days at Makweti and it was the most memorable bush trip I’ve ever taken. The guide Josphat was phenomenal - highly knowledgeable and tailored the experience to what we wanted to see. The service was excellent and Charlotte and the team were out of this world. The condition of the lodge is immaculate and the decor is fitting for the environment. I would highly highly recommend staying here
Hard to describe the weekend we just had at Makweti to someone who hasn't been there before...definitely a trip of a lifetime - filled with amazing game viewing, delicious food, romantic sunsets, great company (staff are so friendly) and all at the most stunning lodge. Couldn't have imagined a better African experience:) We will definitely be back!
We spent 4 nights at Makweti in early February and our experience exceeded our expectations. Reservations were customized by Premier Travel who arranged a pre-safari visit to Capetown, followed by private charter flight (with 6 friends) landing on a dirt airfield a half hour from the lodge. The staff at Makweti was attentive, friendly and very accommodating. Local food was expertly prepared and the South African wines were delicious. Our guides were knowledgeable and we were all completely bowled over by the density and proximity of the animals: elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, lions, impala, warthogs. It was a moving and beautiful experience. To add to the fun, during the morning safari we stopped for coffee/ tea and a snack; and in the pre-dinner safari we stopped for cocktails (naturally, gin and single malt liquors were available!). The experience of a lifetime!…
