Our Rangers Kingsley & Kel were certainly the best I have ever experienced in many years of game watching. Their knowledge & experience of game, flora & fauna mind blowing. Such friendly charming guys. Two of our party went... More

We saw an incredible variety of game and frequent highlights including lion cubs up close eating a warthog and a cheetah chasing Impala. I loved the routine of the... More

Mrs. B and I stayed for three nights in March. What a wonderful experience. I will admit that we were not looking forward to the drive from Durban into the interior, but it turned out to be effortless with wonderful scenery. South Africa is indeed a beautiful country. Once inside the reserve, you leave your car in a secure compound,... More

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
