I visited the Springbok Lodge in August with a group of about 30 people and was not expecting such a luxurious Safari Experience! Upon our arrival the staff was friendly and efficient getting our bags to our rooms, you could tell that the guides were anxious to get us out on Safari to see the animals. They were EXTREMELY knowledgeable,... More

I was the only one of our group not to have been to Springbok Lodge before and quite honestly I thought that maybe the previous comments had been generous. There were not! Before I even got to the Lodge the experience of dealing with the bookings was very friendly and professional. I arrived and after having parked my own car... More

Had a most memorable stay at Springbok Lodge . Tent accommodation most comfortable. Staff most attentive . Food choices somewhat limited , and I believe there could be improvement in overall food quality - would have loved Bush Braai . Game drives and sightings great though, and incredibly talented, knowledgeable and good humoured guide William , made the trip. All... More

We had a great stay at the Lodge. Staff was attentive and Nicole our Game Ranger was funny and knowledgeable. The tented accommodation was beautiful-kids will love it! Didn't like the open-plan loo! Saw tons of game and food and ambiance were terrific.

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
