Me and my dad stayed at this lodge at the end of our organised safari trip. It's in a beautiful nature reserve in beautiful grounds and even has a pool!! Olaf and Stefani made us feel so welcome and at home, as well as the dogs. We had a lovely evening chatting and laughing, not to mention the amazing food... More

Traveled with a group of 13, spent 2 nights there and didn't want to leave. I can't say enough good things about Olaf, Stefani, Rita and the rest of the staff. Their hospitality was amazing. The food was beautiful, the rooms were perfect and the game drive was a ball! Can't wait to come back!

The hosts are wonderful people. You feel at home from the moment you arrive. The accommodation is clean, neat and nicely presented for 3 star and completely appropriate. On the first night we ate in the dining room where the Traditional food which was presented well. The second evening we had a Braai out the back under the stars and... More

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
