At Makweti Safari Lodge, we pride ourselves on exemplary service and the ways that we can deliver this to our guests. But service can be a very impersonal act. It can be professional, it can be streamlined, and it can also be detached. Something that has always been close to our hearts is the creation of tangible bonds with our guests.
We do this by welcoming them into our space and making them feel as though they are a part of the everyday activities. For the days or weeks that our guests spend at Makweti, they are a part of our wild and wonderful family.
Something that entices newcomers to stay at Makweti is the reviews they read, either on websites such as TripAdvisor or via our Facebook page, or even received through word of mouth from other guests.
We are thrilled to announce that we have recently been added to the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame due to us having received a Certificate of Excellence, every year for the past five years.

“Makweti, (about our fourth visit) in the Welgevonden Game Reserve is the most amazing lodge. One of the loveliest in the whole of South Africa. It is smallish, with an exceptional ‘homely’ feeling, beautifully decorated, and the most spectacular views and outlook across the valley.
The staff are excellent, polite and friendly. Our guide was superb,10/10 + more! Very knowledgeable, and the most wonderful drives to the most beautiful parts of the park. Game and birds are plentiful. Will definitely choose to visit again.”

“I recently returned from my third trip to Makweti! It was as magical as the first. With each trip I learn more about the animals and vegetation, appreciate the service, enjoy the luxury of the lodge and am mesmerized by the gorgeous vistas! The wildlife and the experience are always thrilling and never disappoint!”
