About Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge
Construction on Kwa Maritane commenced centuries ago. An ancient alkaline volcano fashioned the very hills that Kwa Maritane stands on today. Hence it's name, which literally means "Place of the Rock". From here, you can look out over the infinite plains adjacent to the Pilanesberg National Park - an area rich in wildlife and hosting around 365 species of birds.
Let your every wish be pandered to - indulge yourself with a stay in any one of our 90 luxury rooms. Or cater for yourself - we have 25 equipped chalets and 28 cabanas. All rooms have individual air-conditioning, bathrooms with shower and toilet, DSTV, direct dialling phone, electric shaving plugs, coffee/tea making machines and a hair dryer. Room service is available from 07h00 to 22h00.
At Kwa Maritane you can get the sense of being far away from it all and yet be minutes away from civilisation. Our shuttle service will transport you from the airport or to Sun City in no time.

The Wildlife Centre
The ambience of the bush is the perfect soundtrack to a leisurely day outside. Saturate yourself in sunshine by taking part in any of the following activities:
Floodlit bush putt
Two swimming pools
Two all weather floodlit tennis courts
Table tennis and pool tables indoors
GAME VIEWING & DRIVES
As well as the 'Big Five' you might also find the nocturnal brown hyena, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and even sable. The focal point of the sunrise and afternoon game drives is game and bird identification. From September to March, we also offer a more leisurely sundowner drive, with sundowners and game viewing by spotlight.
Make a whole evening of it with an afternoon drive combined with a bush braai at our Boma. During the summer months of September to April, you enjoy the thrill of a nightlife encounter on our special night drives. And if you'd prefer to stay in, you can always catch live wildlife on the Africam facility in your bedroom.
Then there is also the unique experience of a 130 metre underground tunnel leading to the Hide. The perfect vantage point for an intimate look into the wild, without being detected yourself.
PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK
Pilanesberg National Park, which covers some 55 000 hectare, is the fourth largest in South Africa. This malaria-free park is perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater - one of only three such craters in the world. On its undulating hills and everlasting open plains, you can get a glimpse of the 'Big Five', an abundance of animals and over 360 bird species.
