A relaxing upmarket lodge, very good food, excellent Nadia's milky coffee! We saw 4 1/2 of Big 5 in two days- no leopard but cheetah instead- including a lion kill! Great communal area both day and night for relaxing and meeting with other guests. Super rooms, peaceful, warm and good facilities - tablet, Nespresso machines etc.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Nambiti Hills on my sisters recommendation. What an incredible treat it was! Lodge: the lodge is small and personal, beautifully decorated, with a warm and cosy ambience. There are board games and safari related books in the bar/lounge area, fire places everywhere (lovely during the cold winter nights!) and lots of lovely... More

Nambiti Hills really did live up to the reviews. Our room was amazing, high quality finishes and total luxury. Our Ranger, Joe, was so awesome and friendly. He really knows his stuff and can do a mean bush braai too! The food is excellent with your dinner choices being exhaustive. We will definitely be back!

Wow what a phenomenal experience we have had at Nambiti Hills. All the staff were very friendly and helpful with big smiles on their faces. The Game drives were unbelievable and we saw a lot of game thanks to our ranger Kel. We will definitely be back to this beautiful place

All staff, from the kitchen staff, rangers and management staff had smiles on their faces. I have never felt so welcomed. We were blessed with clear, breathless, hot days and stunning, chilly evenings to enjoy around the fire with the family! The game drives were close and personal! Honestly, a priceless experience on every ride. A truly unforgettable holiday. The... More

We stayed at Nambiti Hills for one night at the beginning of April and it was nothing short of incredible. From the stunning surroundings, to the vastly knowledgeable rangers, our game reserve experience was absolutely faultless. Before even arriving at the lodge we saw zebra, giraffe, hippo and several other amazing animals and on both the sunset and sunrise drives... More

Outstanding service, with warmth, professional and attention to detail for our every wish and need (especially considerate and caring towards my 12 year old niece). 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. Your wildlife... More

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

My sisters and I all live in different countries so this was a reunion of sorts. We are all originally from SA but have never experienced a game lodge like this one. The lodge and rooms are fantastic and the game viewing brilliant with our wonderful King to inform us all we needed to know! whilst providing us the the... More
