Spent the day visiting the white lions and took a bush walk with Olaf. The experience was wonderful and informative. Grand kids stayed at the lodge and "the ladies" watched them with care and love. We had an authentic "bush" lunch back at the lodge and enjoyed some interesting stories from Olaf and his lovely wife.

We stayed at Nsele lodge as part of a packaged tour of South Africa - all we can say is this place is a dump. It needs updating - some of which is simple updates like painting, updating the bedding, putting screens in the windows so you;re room isn;t full of bugs every night, etc. Others are investments that these...

This is a great lodge close to Kruger and great hosts. Olaf is the safari guide and his wife cooks up some great dinners. Nice little huts to stay in and a nice firepit area to relax and drink some wine. Girraffes are roaming around!

We were greeted by a friendly couple and staff. The accommodation was pretty, private and comfortable. The food was amazing- home cooked meals made with love! The location was beautiful- just very dry. We spent a long time watching the game- zebra eating at the water hole. Little things could be seen to - the roof fan didn't work etc.

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 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.
