"our stay was a surprise gift, we had been here before, but only on a day game drive. our guide, Branden was excellent, very knowledgeable about the park and the animals and could answer our questions thoroughly. he is an asset to your park, would highly recommend him. the accommodation was excellent as was the meals and staff at the restaurant, we saw everything that we had hope to see, and the elephant experience was very interesting and gave us an insight into their predicament in the wild. would certainly recommend at least an overnight stay at Inkwenkwezi.yours yvonne and davy thomson, scotland"

"Branden was our ranger for the 2 night/3 day stay and he absolutely MADE our visit. He went thecectra mile with his attentiveness, good humour, animal knowledge and all round sense of fun. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The game drives were full of adventure in "the beast", Brandens landrover. Time with the white lions was very special as was an early morning drive. Plenty of yummy food - especially the braaied meat. We ended up with Sunday buffet lunch - a buffet like no other. So many options.. the roast llamb was the best ever. Inkwenkwezi means star... undoubtedly Branden is the star of Inkwenkwezi for us."

"value for money"

"Inkwenkwezi may not be the biggest game reserve in South Africa, but it is certainly value for money and is big enough to keep you occupied for several days.All meals, game drives and most activities are included in the price.The valley camp tents are all private and you would not realise that anyone else was staying there, as you cannot see any other accommodation from your tent.You are allocated a personal guide who will take you on game drives and organise any other activities you fancy. He will also pick you up and take you for meals in the restaurant (unless you fancy walking and passing the local nyala, wildebeast and monkeys en-route!.) We did the elephant & the cheetah interactions and also quad biking (this was a little scary, but fun).The reserve is big enough to feel like you are in the wild & we saw plenty of wildlife including giraffe, rhino, zebra & the infamous white lions (though they do have there own fairly large enclosure).We didn't find the buffallo, though they are there somewhere.Just one star deducted as the swimming pool furniture needs upgrading (though i was reliably told that they were on order).A special mention to our guide Byron who was excellent & also to the elephant handlers who were also very good."

"It was worth the money! Elephant experience, cheetahs and white lions. Ashley, our guide, went out of her way to make us comfortable during our short stay. Tents were comfortable during the high temperatures we experienced. We will definitely be back!"
