Rooms are beautiful and very clean, staff is very friendly and courteous, food is amazing!!, and the game drives i just loved! Very different sceneries in that reserve, which makes the drives always exciting. Nungubane has 5 private lodges, all have there own personal touch.... 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

We've just returned from a 2 week trip to Africa including Vic Falls, Chobe National Park and a river boat cruise. Our last leg of the trip was a couple of nights at the Nungubane Lodge. What a perfect, perfect end to our holiday. The Lodge had a lot to live up and managed to do this with effortless style.... More

Nungubane is one of the best places I have ever been. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left, we were treated like friends rather than just guests. Andrea and Richard made our stay what it was, they are an exceptional team who go out of their way to ensure that everything is just perfect. The food was... More
