If you want to get away from the the noise of the city and spend some quite time surrounded by nature, KwaMaritane is perfect for you. Enjoyed the game drive, the environment was quite and secluded.

Kwa Maritane is a wonderful hotel in the bush. I'd recommend this hotel for any family. It situated only 2 hours out of Joburg. The rooms are big enough and are well equiped. The game drives are amazing and the food buffets are great.

Steve from Canada”
Orchids: Having visited Kwa Maritane over 20 years ago I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it is still as good as ever: the game hide, the excellent choice of food, friendly staff, and elephant & rhino to be seen from the restaurant patio. Onions: The drive from Johannesburg is horrendous and potentially dangerous. If I come again I will fly. It was confusing getting into the Pilanesburg Park from Kwa Maritane. At the price you charge overseas visitors to stay at the Lodge, the park entrance permit should be included in the overall cost.

An ex-pat returns to the Bush”
Kwa Maritane pushes all the right emotional buttons! In fact it’s more than great and we enjoyed the stunning vistas and lodge like feeling of Southern Africa. I felt right back at home instantly. The ambiance, the food and the hospitality surround you. Try, if you must, the gale force winds of luxury bush living in Pilansberg. The service is exceptional and I offer no hesitation on any part as to the generous often contagious smiles and can- do attitude of the staff. They makes Kwa Maritane and I’d highly recommend this booking. As they say in Setswana language - Sala Sinthle!

Highly Recommended!”
YAY: located within the pilanesberg national park | they allow overnight stay during weekends | friendly and accommodating staff | good amenities (pools, shop, hide, restaurant, bar) | the hide allows you observe the animals in the watering hole | accommodation includes breakfast, dinner and one game drive (really a good value for money) | good breakfast selection | bush braai is definitely a must try (happens every wednesday and saturday) | 3-hour game drive where guides focus on finding animals that guests request for | adequately sized and clean room with balcony (i got their studio) | provides shuttle to sun city for ZAR 100 roundtrip NAY: internet connection is relatively good but i didn't like the fact that they have a 500mb cap on internet usage

Incredible stay”
Incredible stay at Kwa Maritane. In planning the trip we chose to do our safari at Pilanesberg rather than Kruger because accommodation seemed more reasonable and we were right. This lodge was absolutely amazing. We got upgraded to an executive suite, which pulled out all the stops. The food was incredible- breakfast and dinner buffets included in stay. I was expecting easy food for the buffets, but was left very impressed with how fancy both were. At dinner one night we were joined by a group of four elephants who came to the watering hole right by the restaurant. Dinner included lamb, fish, and many more options. We even got lucky that we were there on a Wednesday and could partake in the bush brai under the stars- another incredible experience. The game drives are beyond imagination- the guides are so helpful and we were able to see lions (an entire pride devouring an antelope) a family of elephants, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, warthogs, impalas, kudu, and more. Highly recommend!

Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge at Pilanesberg”
We stayed for 3 nights with another couple from the UK and were very pleased with the rooms, facilities, meals, hide viewing and game drives. The staff were friendly and helpful and the smaller pool was located very close to our room so we had some chill time there too. The best game viewing seemed to be after a half hour drive into the Pilanesberg National Reserve - though animals are not predictable as to where they appear. All in all a very enjoyable stay at Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge.

Above average”
Whilst the accommodation and food was good, the service was shocking. Not only did we have to “throw our toys out of the cot” when we were told we needed to book months ahead to get onto a game drive, but the general attention to detail was way below par. My kindle was also stolen ...the front service staff made no effort to phone me back with regards to the theft.

Great African style game lodge next to Pilansberg”
We are a British family who visited Kwa Maritane 20 and 10 years ago and recently returned. Very little has changed which can be both good and bad. We loved the fact that game drives are now part of the deal offered and there seemed to be more animals. We liked the dinners where chefs cooked you fresh food but not the dull buffets. And we love the peace and tranquility it can offer

Cant recommend highly enough”
Fantastic holiday. Location was brill and 3 nights/4 days just the right amount for winter time - temperature was just right at mid 20s and sun shone. Pool was freezing however but didnt deter a dip. If you want a family room where your kids are over 17 you have to adjust booking by calling them direct and pay seperarely for additional meals and game drives on arrival.This was well worth the phone call to SA. Food was in buffet form for breakfast and dinner and was exceptional. My only problem was choosing from all the options and decided to lower the portions and have a bit of everything. Food never ran out and I did find myself asking what they did with all the left overs as it certainly wasnt represented later on, everything was fresh. Game drives were superb, hosted by Andre the guide/driver and although drives are promoted as between 2.5 to 3.5 hours all 3 drives were nearer 4.5 hours which was great for us. It would have been interesting to have had a different guide as by the time drive 3 finished we knew the script and jokes of by heart but this didnt detract from a great experience. We did 2 morning and 1 afternoon ( which became night) drive and was presented with loads of wildlife including a herd of 21 elephants migrating in early evening and a road side lion kill which became a slight bottleneck once everyone knew about it. The kill lasted the whole time of our stay so we saw differeng lions each day. The acclmodation is good although the free wifi is only 500mb each day of stay b

Big hotel experience”
If you are looking for an intimate experience then Kwa Maritane is not for you . Kwa Maritane caters to large groups . The breakfasts served in the morning are satisfying , there is something for everyone . The food is mass produced . Don't expect fine dining . The staff are extremely friendly and helpful . The rooms are large and well appointed . The game drives are aimed at the masses , you will not get an intimate experience like you would at smaller lodges. The trucks are large and accommodate 10-15 people .
Reviewed May 09, 2017
Dear Sandra Thank you for your review. The reason for our larger trucks for game drive is due to the fact that we are quite a sizeable Lodge. Most of our packages include a game drive so we need to have the availability for every guest in the lodge to have a drive. In terms of the food we do have a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner and we put a variety out so that people can have a few choices. We thank you once again for your review.

This is advertised as a four star luxury hotel but it simply falls short of what most travellers would expect . It is in a wonderful location but the service provided by the staff is woeful - it is clear that management have been doing the same thing day after day for the past couple of decades and complete boredom has set in. No-one makes anything resembling an effort to welcome you and make you feel like a guest...major lessons to be learnt from most places in the world!
