"Kwa Maritane - wine and dine under the stars of Africa"

The lodge is located in the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve (North-West Province), with the closest point of entry at the Kwa Maritane gate.

Pilanesberg is home to the popular Big 5 of Africa along with many other mammals and bird species. It is situated close to Sun City and is approximately 2 hours drive from bustling Johannesburg.


There are 90 luxurious rooms in Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge (54 rooms with twin beds and 36 rooms with double beds).

Clients have access to all amenities regardless of the room option they prefer.

At the Kwa Maritane Restaurant clients can enjoy a lovely breakfast, lunch or dinner while overlooking a waterhole. The restaurant also has a terrace from which the clients can enjoy their meals.

If the weather permits, the lodge hosts a traditional South African fire in the bush boma on Saturday and Wednesday evenings. Here the clients can wine and dine under the stars of Africa.


Kwa Maritane has proved a popular wildlife destination (malaria-free) due to its diverse array of indigenous flora and fauna that includes the famous Big 5 of Africa.

Explore the bushveld in its element on either an early morning game drive or a game drive in the afternoon/early evening (these being the best times of the day as the animals are out and about).

Guests can venture to a viewing hide (connected to the lodge via a tunnel of 180m) to view animals visiting a waterhole.
