There is nothing to be critical of staying in this luxury tent accommodation. The food, service, people and experience of the safari was impeccable. Unbelievable value, I wish I was there for holiday instead of a stopover for work. Our ranger Jonathon was excellent and provided great detail of the animals we were lucky enough to view. And he clearly... More

As a first time visitor to South Africa, I was hugely impressed by the country and Springbok Lodge was the perfect ending to the holiday. Everything about the lodge was amazing and our ranger, Daryn, was extremely knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. The game drives were superb and nothing was too much trouble to ensure that everyone... More

We had an excellent time at Springbok Lodge. Our ranger was Daryn and he was superb, making every effort to take us as close as possible to the animals, never mind how far off road they were. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was excellent. The tents were superb - not really tents at all! - and the lodge... More

Springbok Lodge is probably the most affordable of all the lodges within the Nambiti Private Game Reserve, just 4.5 hours from Jo'burg or three hours from Durban on good roads. Its ideal for those wanting an exposure to the SA bush, a chance to encounter certainly four, if not five of the big five in a stunning South African reserve... More

We stayed at Springbok at the end of October and it rounded our holiday off perfectly. As with most of the 12 days we spent in KwaZulu Natal the weather was not great. However coming back to electric blankets in our beds was most welcome. Ponchos on the drives were great too and our guide Matt was knowledgeable and had... More
