Had a two night stay at Springbok Lodge with family and friends. We received a very warm welcome from all the staff. The tented rooms were very comfortable with everything one would need. The beds were good and there are electric blankets on them, this was most welcome after a very chilly game drive. We had two game drives per... More

Springbok offers exceptional value in the field of private game reserve lodges in South Africa. You're in the Nambiti reserve, easily accessed from the N3 Jo'burg - Durban freeway, and an additional attraction is the close-by KwaCheetah facility, which offers interaction with cheetahs, servals and other wildcats. The rooms ( luxury tents ) are supremely comfortable and private, and excellent... More

We had a great time @ Springbok Lodge. The accommodation, food, service and the game drives were awesome! Our game drive ranger was Mike who was very friendly and very informative about the habitat, diet and other facts about animals that I wasn't aware of. The complimentary Cherry in our rooms kept us warm on a cold night! Wendy and... More

Had a great time and highly recommend the lodge. Wendy made booking easy and was extremely helpful. Daily game drives with William were not only informative but also very entertaining...much appreciated. We did the cheetah interaction at Kwa Cheetah...unbelievable experience. We will definitely be back to visit. From Denver Colorado thanks for a great time.

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...
