The reserve is five minutes from magnificent beaches and a 40-minute drive from a national airport. Driving to Inkwenkwezi is a pleasure as the roads are tarred right to the entrance.

The game reserve features a Bush Camp, consisting of six two-person lavish en-suite safari tents and the Valley Camp offering 12 guests accommodation in six custom designed luxury tents. For meal times, Inkwenkwezi offers guests the finest dining options. Have an elegant African dining experience at the Emthombeni Restaurant or indulge in a culinary delight at the Sunset Lapa.

                          We were absolutely blown away by the service and really delicious food!!Our guide Johan was so knowledgeable about the animals and plants, he also really went out of his way to make sure that we were happy. Our stay was such a memorable experience, loved seeing the animals and quite still nature. The Jeep drives were such an adventure and seeing the lions was such a highlight!!Highly recommend the Sunday buffet and doing the actives that they have to offer, really makes your stay worth it by seeing and experiencing the entire lodge.
