Not at all happy with this place due to the following reasons: 1. Room was like a fridge because aircon was not effective enough, even on maximum heat. Actually, the aircon is fighting a losing battle with the draughty room anyway. 2. Aircon remote display was not working-had to fiddle around for 15 minutes while standing on the bed to... More

From the beautifully appointed tents, the rugged and exciting game drives where we saw cheetah, lions being cornered by buffalo, elephants fighting, hippo and buck and birds of various types to the great food and service; everything about Springbok Lodge and Nambiti is something to remember. The Cheetah Experience is certainly worth a visit and little extras are certainly value... More

From the enquiry phase, booking, directions, dietary requirements to the end of our stay it was an awesome time. The tented accommodation was luxurious with all ones needs provided for. The staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. My daughter's vegan diet was well catered and overall the meals were delicious. Mention must be made of our ranger Greg who... More

I stayed at Springbok Lodge a year ago at the end of a two week stay in SA and enjoyed every moment. Pleasure to return again for three days after a two week mission trip. Food awesome and plentiful. Breakfast in the warm sunshine under winter, warm, sunny skies and whilst we were there lunch too. Dinner compared to any... More

This was our second visit to the Springbok Lodge and it was every bit just as special as our last visit a year ago. It is the middle of winter and yet we were very comfortable, electric blankets on our bed, and a huge bottle of complimentary sherry to warm us up in our luxury tents! The evening and morning...

He asked us what we would like to see and he pulled it off :) Pack warm for the winter months as... More

To start off this review, I would like to compliment the reserve first. Nambiti is an absolutely beautiful reserve, and it is a must see. Springbok lodge in my opinion is the way to experience safari in South Africa. Staying in a fancy manor house or a lodge is just not the way to experience it. We stayed in room... More

Such a fantastic time had at Springbok Lodge for my milestone birthday. From excellent service, to magnificent food, and absolutely awesome Game Drives with Jono where I managed to get the most spectacular pictures of animals and sunrise and sunset views. The luxurious tents and the little special extras done to make my stay a memorable one just shows what... More

Eight of us spent the first 2 weeks of April in South Africa. Five adults and three children, 14 months, 9 and 12 years old. Having spent 5 nights in the Drakensburgh region, we drove some 3 hours for 3 nights stay at the Springbok Lodge. I was still catching my breath from our time at the Burgh, but there... More

Unfortunately we only had the time to be day visitors to Sprinkbok Lodge. That was our loss. From the initial communication with Wendy to the end of our game drive with Steve and William it was the smoothest of experiences. Clear directions to get there, friendly staff who thought of everything in advance and sightings of lots of game. We... More
