Beautifully designed lodge, the most delicious good, incredible service, and of course then there's the game drive experiences with a guide filled with knowledge, humour, and genuine affection for the wildlife and environment.

I was looking for a luxury bush experience for a special occasion and came across Nambiti Hills Lodge. The reviews were predominantly positive and I opted to give it a go. From my initial conversations with Bryce, the lodge manager, I got the sense that they were all about personalised service and was not disappointed throughout my dealings with him,... More

Excellent value for money, amazing meals, small enough that the entire stay felt personal and intimate, incredible location, amazing staff! This is our second visit and we will certainly be returning. Only one observation by all in our party: the beds felt "short"??!! However still not enough to put us off a further visit. Well done and keep it up!!

Bryce welcoming us in after every game drive was a wonderful touch topping off superb staff treatment. The food was wonderful, the rangers were informative, and general staff around the lounging area were very friendly and helpful. We had... More

Excellent lodge: quality of the rooms, service, quality of the food, location of the lodge with the terrasse and the view, and of course quality of the drives: three catches(by lions & chita) in 2 days, never seen this in other locations. Joe is a fantastic ranger, À place to go
