The Springbok Lodge in the Nambiti game reserve was featured in a travel supplement and based on the review we decided to make a visit and stay a few days. A great drive down the N3 and through Van Reenen's Pass was a great way to start our vacation. The directions we received were very good as you need to... More

Recently stayed at Springbok for the first time, after being recommended it by my sister. Collected at the gates by our personal ranger Craig, who stayed with us throughout the visit. Saw our first game within 1 minute of arriving, with the hippos in the lake near the lodge going for a mid morning sunbath! Met with a hot towel... More

We had the most amazing stay from first booking to leaving. The staff must be complimented on flawless service and food. We had Nicole look after us and she does an excellent job. Our game drives were very entertaining and informative and I recommend her.

We had four nights here with our grown up kids, so we had two 'tents'. We had rooms 4/5 which I think are the new concrete buildings as the only tent like bit was the roof inside. We were met by Nicole who was our guide through out and also met us for drinks in the evening to make sure... More

We were met by our personal ranger (Jonathan) at the gates, and he stayed with us throughout the stay, leading our game drives and even making sure we had a drink or were seated for dinner etc. The tents are 'glamping', for example on returning from an afternoon game drive, my mother in law was delighted to find a hot...

We spent a few nights here with family. The accommodation was wonderful. Loved the bathrooms in the tent. The food was excellent. The portions were huge. The hospitality was wonderful. The guided safari rides were good and plentiful. We saw some awesome sights.

We so enjoyed our 2 night stay here. I noted locals on return visits which is testament to quality of safari. Food could be slightly improved and a bug bear only was trying to organise for a table reset as we were on later side of breakfast period. Staff had to be prompted 3 times to assist as all tables...

My first Safari and I was not disappointed. The accommodation was comfortable and clean. The staff were lovely, always at hand to help with anything. The food was a bit mediocre, but plenty of it. The ranger could have been a little more informative, but overall a great experience for me.

not a big safari fan, but enjoyed the drives - beautiful landscape and out and about in the fresh air. The guides are very knowledgeable and interested in the animals and their surroundings. Lodges are lovely - tents - with full bathrooms. Bath inside, shower outside. Well serviced. nice communal areas - plenty of food. my only complaint is about... More

Rooms (Tent) were neat, clean, spacious and aptly furnished. View from my room was not the best. Game viewing was excellent, and Darryn was very professional and efficient! It was my first time at Nambiti and was impressed at the park. Food was great on some nights and on others below par. Found the drinks staff and management slightly rude... More
