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

An awesome tented camp in a beautiful setting. Great accommodation with nice food. Highlight were the game drives and personal attention and expert knowledge of our ranger - Graeme. We were very fortunate to see the Big 5. Planning to be back !

My family and I enjoyed a 24hr stay with The Springbok Lodge. It was the first time we ventured away from our normal north coast/ Zululand game lodges. Reservations staff were extremely friendly and helpful and assisted us with all our booking requests. Our tents were most luxurious and had all the fittings and fixtures we needed - the outside...

I had a short stay at Springbok Lodge in early October 2014 and I must say it was a wonderful experience! Our guide Matt took extremely good care of us from the moment we arrived. During the two game drives we attended he showed good knowledge of nature and animals and it was truly amazing - both getting close to... More

Had a short, but truly amazing stay at Springbok lodge. Our guide Matt was incredibly knowledgeable about everything from animals to birds and even trees :-) His genuine and calm appearance was perfect for this experience. We came close up to several animals, but at the same time I indeed appreciated that our guide put safety first and drove on... More

Went on a friends recommendation as they had recently been and as it happens his son is a ranger there ( Who we got as our guide). Absolutely everything it said on the box and possibly more. Drives were superb and we saw more here than we did in other parks in the last three years. They call them TENTs..... More

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary 3 - 5 October 2014. Springbok Lodge is truly magnificent, from the surrounds to staff, special requests, game drives (ranger Matt is really knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm), accommodation (raised tents) and not to mention the fabulous food. Highly recommended for couples wanting to do something special together!
