  • Idube is a small (intimate) game lodge which provides comfortable accomodation and some fabulous game viewing with friendly knowledgable rangers & spotters. In 3 days we saw The Big 5 + a pack of Cape...  more »
  • Visit Idube -. We probably felt all around. The game drives were impressive, the staff is very friendly and the Ranger and Tracker proficient. Perfectly located. 1 hour driving from the airport. Water hole directly at the lodge, where you can watch the animals. From the lodge no wide roads for Wildlife observation. Our Ranger Bragon and our tracker culture were a good team and we had a lot of fun with each other. The bushwalk is a must. An hour back to the lodge. Indescribable. Room and bathroom in excellent condition. Cabinet, sideboard, AC and fan available. As well, mosquito net and spray against mosquitoes. Room has been prepared for the night. A wonderfully big bed! Excellent service. Friendly, helpful. The Rangers had stood in the evening behind the BAR and have served the drinks. All were good. Have to set even after the morning game drive and an evening meal on the table, told about their adventures. We had no complaints. ;-) and us always very well kept felt. BBQ with Campfire, drink service. Food to choose from. Always freshly prepared breakfast / lunch / dinner. Quality very good. Prices for drinks are very acceptable (not inflated). Sun-downer at the evening exit in the middle of the Prairie with beautiful views of the sunset. There was a big pool, we were lucky enough to have a private pool. Otherwise our free time was to observe the animals

  • MIND BLOWING! This is a must do experience. Idube in particular did such an unbelievable job catering this wonderful experience. From the very beginning until the moment you leave they take the absolute best care of you. Their entire staff is made up of VERY kind, personable, and knowledgeable individuals. We were lucky enough to have Bernice & Ronald as our ranger/tracker combo and I can't imagine having had a better team. 5 stars. Would/am recommending to all my friends!
  • Super sufficient management and friendly staff. Superp food. Nice chalets and suites. Super game viewing with professional rangers.
  • Been there often, great service and guides. Rooms are nice with a clean environment would come again.
  • My husband and I stayed at Idube for our honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing experience! We saw tons of wildlife on our game drives, including all of the Big 5 (most multiple times) and lots of other animals. Our guide was very nice and informative. The accommodations were great and food was incredible too. The service is wonderful too, and Idube truly went above and beyond to make our honeymoon special with lots of surprises. Would highly recommend!!
