Construction on Kwa Maritane had already commenced centuries ago. An ancient alkaline volcano fashioned the very hills that Kwa Maritane stands on today. Hence its name, which literally means "Place of the Rock". From here, you can look out over the infinite plains adjacent to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve - an area rich in wildlife and hosting around 365 species of birds.

Perhaps it's these ideal natural surroundings that won Kwa Maritane the "Best Game Lodge" Award at the 1998 and 2001 Conference & Exhibition Venue Awards.

Location & Nearby Attractions
A magnificent wildlife sanctuary lies not too far from the bustle of Johannesburg and Pretoria - located close enough to drive comfortably in under two hours, yet sufficiently distanced from the city lights.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve, which covers some 55,000 hectares, is the fourth largest in southern 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. As well as the 'Big Five', you might also find the nocturnal brown hyena, wild dogs, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and even sable.

Many guests are content to spend time at the lodge, drinking in the meditative silence and holding the wide, open plains in awe; but they never leave without tracking down the Big Five in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, on game walks or drives.

Kwa Maritane and Pilanesberg Game Reserve are situated adjacent to the world-renowned Sun City Resort. For a diversion, there's all the bustle and excitement of a day at Sun City, including:
• Golf
• Tennis
• Squash
• Ten pin bowling
• Horse riding
• Crocodile farm
• Aviary
• Casino
• Live entertainment venues
• Theatre and movie

Do a brief one-hour bird and tree identification trail around the lodge or opt for the more extensive two-hour walk that takes you deeper into the park and into more detail.

Game Drives
The focal point of the sunrise and afternoon game drives is game and bird identification. From September to March, the lodge also offers 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 the Boma.

During the summer months of September to April, you'll enjoy the thrill of a nightlife encounter on 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.
