The level of service we received at Nambiti Hills was on par with that of a Four Seasons Resort. After two days of travel, we arrived late (after 10PM) and the staff had kept the kitchen open for us and graciously pour a much needed cocktail and prepared a wonderful three course meal. Our bags were delivered to our beautiful... More

I stayed for a couple of days after my wedding on a "mini" honeymoom. The rooms are excellent as is the food. The staff are also very friendly and very happy to be of assistance. Highly recommended. I will be returning.

A beautiful remote safari park with a great view over looking it. Fantastic guide Jo that drove and found our animals. Accomodation is 6 star and the meals terrific. Rooms are very spacious and everything a person needs or wants is available.
