Small and exclusive lodge with only 5 rooms and a lot of attention to detail to make their guests comfortable. Very knowledgeable game rangers to make every game drive very interesting and worthwhile. Overall an... More

We had a very good stay here. The rooms are very comfortable, with a fireplace, deck and full bathroom. The lodge was nice, food was good, and our ranger, Jacques, was great. Very knowledgeable, and easy to spend time with. We had good sightings of game. All in all, we would definitely go back!

We've just spent a stunning weekend at Nungubane. Jacques was a brilliant guide with so much knowledge. On Friday night we were fortunate to see a jackal stealing an eiland off a cheetah. Incredible white rhino, elephants etc. We were only eluded by the lions. The lodge staff were so willing and friendly. Livingstone, the chef, outdid himself with a... More

Lodging is in 5 private chalets, each with large bath and beautiful deck. With only 10 guests possible, the feeling of being special is emphasized, with hot towels when returning from game drives, with wonderful meals and personalized attention. On the early morning and afternoon game drives Jacques found us lots of animals including some special time with a lioness... More

Quaint private cottages with their own outdoor deck and outdoor shower with unparalleled privacy. The bedroom has a fireplace and wonderful character. Jacques led our game drives early morning for sunrise and every afternoon through sunset and into the evening. The landscape and wildlife are spectacular. The food was excellent. No bugs or malaria concerns. Bring binoculars and a good... More

We booked at this private bush lodge on a last minute basis and were not disappointed. We got the excellent private bush treatment (as one expects in a private game lodge). The lodges are very private and one does not have to close curtains in order not to be seen by others. There are trees and bushes all around the... More

What a week of luxury spent at Nungabane Game Lodge, sitting in the Welgevonden Reserve. We enjoyed 14 game drives with the deeply knowledgeable and passionate Jacques (and Nathan), who taught us so much about the African bush, as well as leading us to some once in a life-time sightings including four of the BIG FIVE and a lion on...
