The friendliest people a brilliant artist and happy dogs. This place is not to be missed! The start of our tour and a great place. As a vegetarian I think I put on 2 kilos in 2 nights the food was wonderful. Stephanie is a great cook. Take the white lion tour if offered. Don't miss this experience.

Only stayed here one night at the end of our safari, the owners were very friendly and fed us until we were bursting! The rooms were good, a bit cramped though. Water was hot and bathroom was clean. Best breakfast I have had whilst travelling. Even cooked me gluten free pikelets!!!

Did not enjoy it at all, inedible food (burnt meat/ chillie soup/veg), dogs in diningroom, bedrooms not on lodge standard. they need the finer details to be the 3 star accommodation they claim to be. we looked forward to celebrating family birthdays, eventhough they tried, we did not get what we expected.

Stayed here for 2 nights with an Acacia Africa tour. The chalets are clean, comfortable and well equipped - I particularly liked the square mosquito nets, and the provision of mossie repellant and room spray. The hospitality was wonderful, and the food was homemade and delicious. One of the nicest places we stayed at on our trip.

Had a great stay at Nsele on a safari across southern Africa. Very friendly, comfortable and well placed for game tours. The game drive staff are extremely knowledgeable and effective. The food was good and well presented. The lodges are classic african construction.

By visiting Nsele Safari Lodge in South Africa, we were treated with the best of everything, from the hospitality, the food (excellent!); the chalets, the pool and the staff. Not to mention the big five game drive with the knowledgeable guide! What a great experience we had, and we will be back, for sure!

In August 2012 we decided to meet our son (Acacia Africa Tour Guide) for his birthday on one of his trips to Nsele Lodge on one of our trips back from Mozambique to South Africa. The road was a little bumpy but the sightings of animals on the way made it all worth while. THEN you arrive at the lodge... More

Once you have entered the private land and driven along the bumpy road spotting animals along the path, you come to N'Sele. If you are lucky like us, you will be met with juice and cold towels and friendly faces waiting to greet you. I stayed with a group as part of a trip organised by Acacia Africa for two... More

We stayed here on a tour with acacia and was the highlight of our trip. Place and his wife are perfect hosts and wonderful cooks. Make sure you do their safari as you get REALLY close to the big 5 - can't wait to go back

We stayed for 3 nights in the Lodge with 3 children. It was an awesome experience from the small, cosy chalets to the open jeep drives and Stefani's mouthwatering food! Nsele prides itslef on being a real bush experience without the cost and stuffiness of other lodges within the loca area. The chalets were clean and well-serviced and whilst small,... More
