Thank you for making our stay memorable. Josephat knew exactly where to take us on our drives what a living GPS and Livingstone food was out of this world. Such a great Chef. Cannot stop thinking about the Boma Supper on our last night. Would love to bring my husband along next time.

We spent 2 nights at Nungubane at the end of November 2015. We were a party of 4 ladies and it was awesome. We met, hung and got to know the lions belonging to the Western Pride and that wasn't even the highlight of the trip... the highlight was the beauty of every moment, from the fun game drives, getting...

I looked into all of the Welgevonden lodges prior to booking at Nungubane. The decision was made due to Elize's fantastic customer service - quick and friendly responses to all my inquiries made me feel so comfortable about Nungubane. We... More

I hope some day I can return with family and have them experience this magical setting. Josphat was an outstanding guide and diligent tracker, trying to find the Big 5 and as many other animals as he could get us to. The food was perfect and there was lots of it. The lodge was comfortable and welcoming. The huts had... More

We spent 3 nights at Nungubane. The first night was special; they had arranged an outdoor dinner and a camp fire and we slept in the open, under the stars, in a guarded camp. We saw lots of animals, but the leopards were shy, unfortunately. Excellent food and good game drives. The bungalows were very nice with the outdoor shower... More

They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and we felt as being "at home" on arrival. We aso had the opportunity to make some extra activities arranged by the lodge and that... More

We spent two nights in what I have to say was a fantastic room. We really felt spoilt by the staff. They made us feel so welcome and catered for every need. An outdoor shower just cannot be beaten! The room is luxurious and comfortable with its own patio. Beds are turned down at night and sleeping in the absolute... More

The whole family had a fab time at Nungubane, The lodge is very intimate and Jacque the general manager is really able to make you feel relaxed, like it's your own lodge. All staff were genuinely friendly and Livingston in the kitchen cooks up great 3 course meals - best lamb shank ever!
