Had an incredible stay. Fantastic service in an incredible setting. Difficult to fault anything. Game Ranger very experienced and knowledgable. Went out of his way to get us to see amazing close ups of animals. Can't wait to go back.

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor and the lodge's website I had high expectations for my 5 star experience at Nambiti Hills, but they were only partially met. The room floor, especially the bathroom, was dirty and took numerous attempts to improve it marginally. The food was generally dissappointing, but with touches of sheer brilliance in between. The starters tended... More

Two game drives a day are great the rangers from the various lodges work closely together to make sure you get to see... More

Our family of 7 adults gathered here for 3 nights for Christmas, 2015. We enjoyed two 3 hour game drives starting at 4:30 AM and 4:30 PM each day. Our guide Iris was marvelous and led us to the most active animals. We saw lions, a bull elephant, zebras, giraffes, both white and black rhinos, hippos, kudu, impala, springbok, eland,... More

Last Monday I spent the night at Nambithi Hills so that I could wake up there on my birthday! The accommodation was first class and the staff were very attentive. I had a drive on the Monday afternoon and again the next morning. There has been a severe drought so I think this affected the number of animals we saw.... More

We had a wonderful stay again. Joe was our excellent driver and tracker and we were able to see many variety of game. The temperatures varied greatly over our 3 days but we were comfortable despite this.

My girlfriend and I had the opportunity to stay at Nambiti Hills this past September, and to tell you the truth, I have never been sadder.
