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!

This is our third trip in and we've recommended to many friends and family and never had a disappointing trip. Its a very welcoming team, all organised and our guests were impressed that the baths were drawn on our return from the evening drive The tents are very nice with excellent beds; even on the coldest night it was cosy....

I was at Springbok Lodge in September, 2014. I was traveling with my parents, husband and 3 children (aged 8,6 and 3). This was our first ever time in Africa and first Safari. We thought Springbok Lodge was wonderful and had 6 amazing game drives in Nambiti with a very experienced and friendly guide William. The accommodation was very comfortable... More

I took a group of six friends to Nambiti earlier this month. The game was superb - varied drives, plentiful sightings and excellent guides. The individual 'glamping' style lodges at Springbok were really well appointed with good attention to detail. The main lodge has everything one would expect including well positioned outside seating and a small pool. Recommended for a... More

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
