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.

From the moment you arrive its a 5* experience, from the warm welcome to the beautiful suites and great service. If you want lunch arrive before 1:30, but if not they can provide snacks to keep you going till pre - afternoon game drive high tea at 2:30.

This was my fourth time in the Nambiti Reserve and second time back at Nambiti Hills. The lodge has continued to grow and thrive and was even better than my last visit. The game viewing was great, I always appreciate that it's not a zoo so every sighting is exciting. Nadia at the spa was absolutely great and so professional... More

What a beautiful break. THE LODGE & FOOD Arriving at the main lodge, set on a hill overlooking the reserve, is beautiful. Unfortunately, visiting in winter during a rainy period meant a lot of the outdoor furniture was not set up (understandably). The decor and ambience is gorgeous; a premium game lodge experience. High tea was tasty (mini pizza, spring... More

From arriving to leaving the staff setting and service were exceptional. Of course the drives were the highlight with Kings being a very knowledgable and enthusiastic guide who truly loves the local wildlife. I was thrilled by not only the incredible panorama over the nambiti plains, but by the luxurious and well appointed accommodation, the friendly staff and the thrill... More

Having nothing but positive things to say about Nambiti Hills. The setting in the middle of the game reserve is unbelievable, our room was spacious and very nicely decorated and felt very private, food was good and the communal areas of the lodge were stunning. We had incredible game drives where our ranger Kel went out of his way to... More
