Pleasing experience. Lodge and bungalows: 4/5 very comfortable and clean, great spa products in room, not super intimate (1 house, 2 rooms, so it depends on your neighbors). We did not use the nice swimming pool. Service: 4/5: compared to SA standard, good service and positive people Food: 5/5: the best we have had so far in SA in this... More

We chose Nambiti Hills for its seclusion and privacy as well as the personal game drives. Spent 2 wonderful days there and had an amazing time. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to get up close and personal with a lot of the wildlife. The restaurant was excellent with catering for our dietary requirements. Everyone was so... More

My wife and I had a highly memorable weekend at Nambiti. All round the experience was perfect and waking up this morning to go to work was hard, as all I could think about was going for a game drive. All of our sightings were fantastic however the highlight of the sightings has to be an encounter between two Hyena's... More

Exceeded all my expectations. This is a small lodge, and it felt like home from home. Staff all very friendly and helpful - Joe our guide did everything he could to make sure we saw all the animals, and was very knowledgeable about them. There was plenty of space in our game 'car'; the most we ever had was 6... More

It was our first Private Game Safari and I decided on Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge. We went for 3 nights. As soon as we arrived I was blown away by the lodge and interior design and views. Just gorgeous. Then we were brought to our rooms, your own bungalow and wow, what a gorgeous, spacious room and beautiful interior.... More

We have been various game parks in South Africa and this was our second visit to Nambiti Hills. It was even better than last year. The Lodges are perfectly situated with glorious views of the reserve. Our guide Kingsley was knowledgeable, sociable ( his G&T's legendary !) ... and his passion for the wildlife shone thru every game drive. A... More

The weekend was exactly what we wanted it to be - the place, the staff, the facilities, the care for customers and of course, the bush and the game - par excellence! The ranger's knowledge is amazing , making the visit interesting and engaging! Definitely worth many more visits

This place is something special. Not only is the lodge the definition of luxury, the food, facilities, staff and game are out of this world. The staff were super attentive and spoiled us on our honeymoon. Our room was stunning and we only wish that we had spent more time in it. I had a facial and treatment in the... More

My family and I came here mid December and stayed for a few spectacular days. The staff were absolutely wonderful and hospitable, the lodge itself was beautiful both inside and out, and the entire reserve was incredible, and the food they served was divine. They even catered to my being a vegetarian. We had probably the best tour guide though... More
