Kwa Mbili Game Lodge
is located in the Thornybush Reserve
in the Kruger
area to the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated in the more busy northern part of the reserve, Kwa Mbili Game Lodge is a relatively simple facility, owner-managed by Neil and Melanie Stuckenberg. Modest traditional central areas include a small swimming pool, whilst a dozen guest rooms are a mix of chalets and tents. The price is extremely low.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari, with the lodge having traversing rights over 40 square kilometres. There is also an animal viewing hide. Wildlife is reliable year round.
The main potential downsides are the simplicity of the lodge and the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
Thornybush is a small fenced reserve which contains a relatively high density of camps and vehicles. We find that the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPrices
