About KwaMbili Game Lodge

KwaMbili Game Lodge provides an authentic safari experience at an affordable price. KwaMbili is situated in Thornybush Game Reserve near Hoedspruit, within the Greater Kruger area. The reserve is home to the Big Five as well as an abundance of other game and bird species. This means good sightings, either while out on game drive or on foot during bush walks.

KwaMbili mean “Place of Two” in the local Shangaan language. Our knowledgeable rangers will introduce you to the tracks, movements, sights and sounds which give you a window into the secrets of the African bush. Back at the lodge, view wildlife from the safety and comfort of our well-positioned hide. If all this calls for time to just let the experience sink in, take a dip in the swimming pool, just relax in an armchair or on your private patio, or enjoy a cool drink at the bar. Meals are served under the stars in the boma or enjoy a private dinner in the hide.

Romantic: We have a honeymoon chalet and we can arrange private romantic dinners at the hide.

                      We had a wonderful experience and Eddie and Eric were awesome safari guides. Your hospitality was exceptional. I hope I can visit again in the future!

                      A fantastic safari experience was had by our family of four - two children under 11. We were made welcome in an informal and relaxed setting by cheerful, helpful and competent staff. The food was excellent and servings were more than adequate. Our room was clean with tasteful decor. We saw the big 5 as promised- in fact each game drive had one or more highlights and a wealth of info was given on a wide variety of birds and animals. Thank you to Luke, Eddie, Loveness and Jef for an unforgettable holiday.

                      We had great experience, very good game drives and among of many others, luck to see the leopard mum with three playing cubs. The bird hide was also great, we had civets and porcupines visiting after sunset. The accommodation and catering was very good. The staff were very helpful and professional, and walking with the owner to the dam and learning firsthand was just the cream on the cake. Our ranger was good, but not excellent. A bit the downside was that the game reserve is still fenced.

                      I must say that was awesome from the very beginning we were made so special by our arrival and the team waiting for us.Compliments to Justin who is always friendly and willing to assist no matter how difficult the situation is.Kwambili went out of their way to make sure we were always on time for the wedding venue and drove us so we would not be covered in dust very impressive at their thought. My congrats to Neil and team for making such a professional team there .Neil as a ranger is awesome as he is prepared to go and find the animals .Liked Simon and Freddy when on their drives certainly...

                      We booked via SafariNow and that gave us already a good feeling in advance. Driving through the main gate and going into the Reserve was sensational, being welcomed and sharing the good food, wines, friendliness (hospitality) was unforgettable. A big compliment to the Kwa Mbili - team! We did not say goodbye because we know we stay there again (soon).
