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...

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

I recently went to Springbok Lodge with my husband, niece, daughter from London her boyfriend and his daughters. The tents are lovely, the setting of the lodge very good and were totally entertained by a fantastic Game Ranger by the name of Gregg, who was both knowledgeable and funny! We saw 4 of the Big 5! Wendy was very good... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to 4 days at Springbok Lodge over the Easter weekend. We were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary and this was the perfect place to do just that.

Springbok Lodge is an amazing lodge. Food and Accommodation are very pleasant and could fault anything. Game drives were comfortable, even if did have a puncture and a typical African Thunderstorm. Game was awesome and its great to get so close to the animals in a natural environment. I think Springbok Lodge is great value for money and would recommend... More

Nambiti Game Reserve is a 20,000 acre Private Reserve located 25km from Ladysmith in Kwa Zulu Natal and is home to the Big 5 as well as Cheetah, Hippo and over thirty species of plains game which roam freely through the extensive grasslands and thornveld. Nestled in the heart of Nambiti Private Game Reserve is where you'll find Springbok Lodge. Escape to this pristine MALARIA FREE wilderness; relax and celebrate nature, her beauty and the small moments with us. The Sundays River provides an abundance of water through the Reserve and creates a unique sanctuary attracting several rare bird species and an enviable array of raptors and vultures.
