Thank you to all the staff at Nkomazi , especially Heinrich Michelle and Kilman and Dave for your awesome hospitality. This special place is a true GEM . No doubt the best kept secret of the lowveld. Just like the white and pink quartz found on this property which represents Love peace and tranquillity. The perfect energy to run through... More

If you are looking for a very special place with extremely knowledgeable rangers and lovely staff, this is it! We were here to celebrate our 20th anniverary with our son and his fiancee and wanted to have a special celebration. Well, we certainly did! Together with our ranger Heinrich (and for one drive Dave) we had close encounters with lots... More

Have just come back from 5 nights at Nkomazi as part of our trip to South Africa. This beautiful game reserve has been truly memorable. The tents are the most luxurious accommodation I have stayed in from the large bed to the stunning view from the toilet. They are positioned so you have complete privacy unable to see any other...

Real luxury with friendship and a smile. Accommodation was fantastic - as was the food and all the arrangements and care. We spent three nights here and soon made good friends not only with our guide but with others staying at Nkomazi - whom we met up with at other places in SA. The reserve is full of animals and...

Stayed here for an anniversary celebration. The accomodation is definitely luxurious with a quaint bathroom and dressing area, huge comfortable bed and lovely outside bath tub. The views were amazing from our room. The staff went to extra lengths to give us a private dinner experience on our first night there. Food options were a little less than other 5... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Nkomazi. The luxury tents were superb as was the food. The evening game drives along with the sundowners were something special. I will be back to sample some of the fly fishing on offer!

We spent 2 nights at this small, personal Game Lodge, over New Year. The accommodation and food were excellent, as everyone agrees. I would like to say a little about the Game Reserve itself. Although relatively small, the reserve is full of animals. It is like a "little Serengeti". Open plains, with antelope and warthog wherever you look. You certainly... More

We stayed for two nights (tent 12), the accommodation was luxurious; the bed large and very comfortable. There is a safe for valuables, a toilet with a view and a shower inside the tent. You can have a bath outside (private where no-one can see you). There is also a small private plunge pool where we relaxed, had a drink... More
