Game park family holiday

Kwa Maritane is perfect for kids in a great lodge for families. Game drives are excellent, 2 pools, restaurant and bar, spa, hide and waterhole for animal spotting, in house animal conservatory with local snakes on display. Has it all to show the family the park, do some animal close ups and relax in between. Close commute to Sun City for more action.

Wonderful accommodation in stunning surrounds

Pros: Everything from the food to the accommodation to the setting to the facilities.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Kwa Maritane is situated in a spectacular part of the Pilanesburg National Park. Game drives, bush braai, and the on-site spa all worth doing!
What an absolutely amazing place to stay. The staff were extremely accommodating, the food delicious, the facilities to excellent standard, and the room clean, large, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We got to wake up and eat breakfast on the terrace while watching the zebras, elephants, and other animals at the watering hole. The TV in our room had a channel dedicated to the watering hole on site so that when any animals came by we could wander down to watch them in person from the silent and discreet comfort of the on-site hide. The setting within the Pilanesburg National Park is second to none. We took advantage of the game drives and were not only surprised to see so much wildlife, but also lucky enough to spot each of the big 5. The rangers were extremely knowledgeable. You can also drive through the park in your own vehicle for a small fee, which is also worth it. On Saturday nights they also hold a Bush Braai within the park, a unique experience and the perfect way to end the day after an afternoon game drive.

Pros: Does what it says
Cons: One staff member with a stony face could spoil an overall great face costs nothing.
Good place to stay with a family enjoyed the food friendly service...except for one rather stony faced waitress at breakfast ! rest of staff fine. Grandchildren loved the pool and slide....driver letting grandson ride in front of vehicle on a rather spectacular game drive .......Have a cool memory of a fantastic family weekend......cant wait to come back....thanks

Good facilities, comfortable, professional staff.

Pros: Decor and African theme very well done. Clean, solid, well-kept buildings and grounds. Underground tunnel to the animal hide and water hole!!
Cons: Bush putt course could could have been cleaner - the surfaces were littered with leaves from surrounding trees.
Location: Sun City close by, if you enjoy gambling and entertainment. I don't.
Good food, game drive and guide were fantastic, very professional. Everything in good condition. Professional and friendly staff in the hotel. Family and I really enjoyed the stay. View of game in the park from the restaurant deck was a big plus for us.
