Kwantu is really fabulous on all fronts. The welcome is five star - snacks and drinks and tour of the resort. Within an hour you are already whisked away to your first game drive. The rooms are really good, large and clean. The bathroom was also spacious and lovely. The room comes with a semi stocked fridge and some complementary snacks. The meals are all tasty and plentiful. Having everything catered for is brilliant. Having everything halaal is more than brilliant. The game drives are adventurous - and you will probably see 4 of the big 5. Great views, great guides. The service was also above par! We will definitely return.

Kwantu game reserve is a beautifully designed, home away from home. On the first day’s short introductory drive we saw elephants and White Rhino up close and many different species of buck and birds. Day two we spotted lions, hyena, rhinos, hippopotamuses etc. There’s a wildlife rehabilitation center as well. The ambiance, warm and friendly staff, guides that go out of their way to ensure that you see every possible animal, the AMAZING food, many entertainment areas and comfortable rooms all created the elements for an unforgettable stay. Well done Kwantu!

We had a fantastic experience. Our guide Avella was very knowledgeable and we saw 4 of the big 5. Compared to other reserves Kwantu is great value for money with all game drives included. Accommodation is furnished and cleaned to a very high standard. I would definitely recommend this place and look forward to giving them a 5* rating next time… if they just sort out the two fire places in the communal areas (too much smoke) and refurbished some of the toys in the children’s games room. My children spent a lot of time in between game drives and swimming at the games room. It’s a nice large safe space to play away from the adults.

We visited the reserve with our family and everyone from young to old, enjoyed the experience. The hospitality of the staff at reception and dining was lovely. A particular highlight for us was our game driver, Innocent, who made the drives and tours memorable by ensuring we had a great experience each time and sharing his knowledge. We were never bored! The meals were delicious. My one recommendation would be to include a wholesome salad at each meal. A small shop or kiosk would also be nice for snacks for kids. The accommodation we stayed at at Elephant Ridge was neat and well suited for a family.

Last summer I spent a wonderfull month in the Kwantu reserve doing the conservation volunteering. It was an incredible experience! We went out daily to observe and identify animals and activities to conserve the environment; how to make plantations, control of invasive plants, also according to the needs of the environment. It's a great volunteer to learn about nature, the dynamics of the environment and their habitants. All this while we enjoy meeting new people and making good friends. The Kwantu team is a great family, very hospitable, affectionate and dedicated to teaching and preserving this great land. To the entire Kwantu family, thank you so much for this great experience!

My husband and I visited Kwantu Game Reserve for three days and two nights. We went on safari three times and saw all the big five and well as many other animals. The tour guide was excellent and all the staff was friendly and professional and they worked hard to make us very happy. The food was superb and very tasty as well as many choices of food. I highly recommend this place. I wish I had planned to stay longer there. If I go back to South Africa I will go back and stay longer.

It was teeming rain and we were all well soaked. Therefore we probably didn’t see as many animals. Saw a black backed jackal, couple of giraffes, and a pride of lions (just like cats) not enjoying the rain.! The buffet food was good.
