We stayed at Nungubane Lodge as a couple. The drive was an easy 3 1/2 hours from Johannesburg on good roads. The last 16K was on a dirt road to the West Gate where we were met by our guide then a 30 minute drive on a land cruiser through the reserve which gave an early opportunity of game spotting.... More

This is a lovely Private Game Lodge in a glorious part of South Africa. About 3.5 hours drive from Johannesburg to the main gate of the reserve, where one leaves ones car. Guests are collected from there and it is a further 40 minute drive on a Land Cruiser to the lodge with the possibility of getting a first viewing... More

Where to start as there is much raving to be done about this place......I think first place belongs to Hein and Elouise who were simply the perfect hosts making you feel not like a stanger or guest but welcome visitors in their home at the same time as being always the utmost professionals. Elouise was always there to assist with... More

We stayed as a couple for four nights in July 2014. The trip from Johannesburg is a very comfortable 3 hours by car on good roads. We were met at the West gate where we left our car in secure parking and we were taken to the lodge by Petras, our guide for the next four days. Our thatched chalet... More

I would highly recommend this Lodge for friends, couples and families... the service is outstanding. Sam our safari driver was full of knowledge, experience and was super friendly. The meals were of high standard every day and the lodges were very clean and tidy. It was a lovely private holiday with a personal touch from Lourens and all of the... More

We had a very good time at Nungubane. Apart from the initial hic-up with our pick-up at the gate, the rest of the weekend was great! The lodge is very beautiful, the room nice, clean and spacious and I just loved the bathroom (also appreciated the special touch off decorating the bath with candles, etc. our last night)! The staff... More

We ended up at Nungubane because the lodge we initially booked (Nedile) decided not to honour our reservation. So we arrived not knowing what to expect.. and were quite positively surprised. Staff were very friendly and professional, and Lourens' great sense of humour made sure we had at least one good laugh a day. The chalets are quite spacious with... More

Sam the game ranger was attentive and knowledgeable as well as able to make us feel right at home. The food was simple but well presented and tasty with the guests requirements catered for at every level.... More

Thank you Lourens, Sam and staff for an absolutely fantastic weekend at Nungubane. Even a torrential downpour while a good half hour drive from camp couldn't damped the spirits. Being met at the Lodge with fluffy towels and a glass of Amarula warmed us up nicely. What a special touch finding the bath run and decorated with candles, chocolates and... More
