Oh, safari days and nights, how I miss you. Chilly mornings included coffee and blanketed hot water bottles as we headed into the bush to see steenboks, cheetahs, giraffes, lions and more! Evenings were wrapped in the orangest sunsets you'll ever see and "sundowners". Sightings of hyenas, hippos, leopards and nyalas kept us warm. Arriving back at the lodge we... More

A friend had recommended the Nkorho Bush Lodge for our safari plans and we were not disappointed. A tremendous facility and staff greats you on your South African safari experience. Once we stepped out of our vehicle, we felt as if we were coming home. We were greeted by the guides and the facility staff, taken to our chalets and... More

Nkorho was our first stop on honeymoon and certainly did not disappoint. The location is excellent with a stunning infinity pool looking over a watering hole regularly frequented by animals. The rooms are cosy and well presented with large well appointed bathrooms. There is a fan which is more that adequate in the Spring, there is no air-con. The game... More

This was our first trip to Africa, but our 3rd (and final) lodge. We had the Honeymoon Suite, which was fantastic (indoor & outdoor showers, bath, lots of room, nice decor, lovely views) but I imagine the other cabins would have been fine. Loved the view of the waterhole from our cabin with zebra, impala, elephants, etc walking by in... More

We saw leopards, wild dogs, hyenas, elephants .... the drives are very respectfull to the animals and the rangers experience is very helpfull to find the animals. The location is very nice and peacefull. Just point out that the south gravel road to acess to the lodge is a bit... More

We were in Nkorho 3 nights in July and EVERYTHING worked absolutely perfect. From the very first email we sent to the lodge, Chantelle and Anja always replied back prompty and with complete info. They also arranged the transport to & from the Skukuza airport with proffesionalism and with the highest standard of transparency. In the lodge, everything was well... More

I stayed in Nkorho Bush Lodge for 2 nights at the end of July 2014 after spending 2 nights in Elephant Plains Lodge and before moving to Nottens Bush Camp. In my opinion Elephant Plains has got the top spot for "best value for money", and Nottens is the best in terms of accommodations. Nevertheless Nkorho has got excellent game... More

I stayed for two nights at Nkorho and loved everyone it. As a single traveller, I found the rate very competitive as there was no outrageous single supplement. The chalets were gorgeous, the food was great, and most importantly, the safaris were fantastic.
