We spent a truly magical 3 days here at the beginning of December and could not fault it, from the time arriving at the main gate to the game reserve to being collected from the parking area and taken to the Lodge. Everyone was very helpful, the "tent" extremely comfortable, food excellent quality. We had the wonderful Mike as our... More

We recently spent 2 nights at Springbok Lodge entertaining a family member visiting SA for the first time; we ourselves don't usually stay in quite such 'fancy' accommodation while visiting game parks, preferring a more natural environment & doing our own game drives but we were pleasantly surprised & all enjoyed the Lodge very much. The tents are very comfortable,... More

We stayed two nights at Springbok Lodge and were very impressed with the luxury safari tent accommodation, the food, the service, etc., etc. All was very good. And we were lucky enough to have Mike as our ranger as he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We have great game viewing.

We had a lovely time, stayed at the lodge for 2 nights and brought a friend from Australia with us. The tents are fabulous, more like a hotel room. Our game driver was very polite and knowledgeable of all the animals and birds. We saw lions and elephants up close, wow!! Weather was not great, very cold and windy, a... More

This was our second trip to Nambiti Game reserve and we love it. Having stayed at another 5 star lodge in Nambiti a few months ago, we were a little disappointed by Springbok lodge. It simply did not have the same attention to detail or same level of luxury. The food was average, the service good but not fantastic, the... More

We were travelling as a group of 8 and spent 3 days at Springbok Lodge. We got off to a rocky start when we got lost on the way there, it is a little tricky to find but for future travellers we recommend typing Ladysmith into the satnav and then taking the website directions from there. Once we arrived we... More
