We had a great time in Springbok Lodge. Our safari tent was very spacious and because it was on top of the hill we had a great view. It always gives an extra touch staying in a tent instead of a normal room. The food was very nice, with a selection of healthy salads. We saw a lot of animals... More

A beautiful Lodge, with friendly, professional staff. Had an informative ranger, Nicole & a relaxing massage from Mzamo. Kwa Cheetah did not disappoint, loved spending time with the Cheetahs. Will recommend anyone to go for a relaxing getaway. Real value for money.

You can spend a fortune on better known game parks and lodges but you can't beat Springbok Lodge for value. You will find well informed rangers, pretty decent food (three times a day), free sherry in your own luxury tent and a fabulous chance on this relatively small reserve of getting up close and personal with the Big Five!

There is nothing to be critical of staying in this luxury tent accommodation. The food, service, people and experience of the safari was impeccable. Unbelievable value, I wish I was there for holiday instead of a stopover for work. Our ranger Jonathon was excellent and provided great detail of the animals we were lucky enough to view. And he clearly... More

As a first time visitor to South Africa, I was hugely impressed by the country and Springbok Lodge was the perfect ending to the holiday. Everything about the lodge was amazing and our ranger, Daryn, was extremely knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. The game drives were superb and nothing was too much trouble to ensure that everyone... More

We had an excellent time at Springbok Lodge. Our ranger was Daryn and he was superb, making every effort to take us as close as possible to the animals, never mind how far off road they were. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was excellent. The tents were superb - not really tents at all! - and the lodge... More

Springbok Lodge is probably the most affordable of all the lodges within the Nambiti Private Game Reserve, just 4.5 hours from Jo'burg or three hours from Durban on good roads. Its ideal for those wanting an exposure to the SA bush, a chance to encounter certainly four, if not five of the big five in a stunning South African reserve... More
