What can I say??? Kusudalweni Lodge, blew away my expectations!!! It had all the amenities of a Ritz Carlton, but also made you feel like your home with all the comforts!!!! Dave and Maria, made us feel so welcome and the staff did an amazing job pampering us! You will be hard pressed to find such comfort at any place that provides the access to BIG 5 safari game drives and the amenities you would expect at a 5 star hotel, including spa services like massages! They even set us up for an amazing walk with white lions, complimentary!!!! We will definitely go back and enjoy Kusudalweni again!!!!

Room Tip: Each room has a private Jacuzzi tub for your pleasure! The rooms are superbly decorated and clean!

Dave and Maria, your outstanding hosts, will welcome you into their phenomenal lodge. Their outstanding staff and friendly dog Jesse will make you feel right at home in the African bush. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. The meals are delicious. The array of available activities will ensure that you are never bored. Highly recommended!

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. Also love the outdoor shower.

Stayed for 3 nights (not enough) & had such an incredible time. Maria & Dave are just the nicest people & lots of fun. The chalets are beautiful & secluded. Was like leaving family when I left. The drives in the parks with Larry were informative & rewarding. Saw the big 5 in just over 2 hours & walking with West's 'girls' WOW. Had a cuddle with a white lion, her paws were around my back. Maria, Dave & all the Kusudalweni family thank you for such a wonderful time & big hugs to Jessie. Definitely will be back.

Stayed: October 2016

This place is a Paradise. Dave and Maria are the best owners that you can desire. The place is clean, confortable, with luxury furnitures and the food is simply amazing... compliments to the Chef!
We had wonderful days in the bush at Kusudalweni and our trips were perfectly organized by Dave and Maria.
Definitely one of the best place were you can stay in the world.

Room Tip: all rooms are perfect, the structure is small and the place is the tranquillità of the bush
