Our visit to Nkorho for 2 days was just perfect. Game drives with ranger Pieter were informative, fun, and of course entertaining. We saw 5 different leopards, including 2 cubs and a mating pair, a hyena den with 2 week old pups, a pride of 11 lion that decided they also liked the lodge. The first night after the game... More

Once again Nkorho Bush Lodge surpassed our expectations. We have had the privilege of visiting more than once, and quite simply Nkorho is the real deal! Without exception the staff were absolutely wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay extra special - nothing was too much trouble. Our chalet was a delight, with a view of... More

After staying at Nkorho for my first time in 2012, I still clearly remember leaving with a very sad heart. Everything about this lodge makes you feel welcome and 'at home'. So when it came to booking my latest trip to South Africa, I had to have Nkorho on the list! Just like the first time, we were warmly welcomed... More

Although not cheap, this is the most most affordable lodge in Sabi Sand. Hospitality is high on their list: a very warm welcome, bags brought to the room, car parked and a clear explanation about the lodge and game drives. All the rooms are in garden bungalows. Nice spacious rooms with an outside shower. The meals are buffet style and... More

I have deliberated long and hard about this, but here it goes... First the good: - very knowledgeable guide (JJ) and excellent tracker (Chris). - unsurpassed game viewing, we stayed only because of this. Next the bad: If you can afford it do not attempt the drive to the park as the terrible condition of the roads in the area... More

Third visit to Nkorho. Not been there since 2008. Nothing has changed, which is a good thing. I come here to see leopards and have not been disappointed yet. There is nowhere better than Sabi Sands to view them in my experience. The Lodge is very comfortable with a beautiful vista. Chalets are excellent with most amenities one could think... More

The lodge is nicely located with a view to a water pond where elephants stop by for a drink (even if at a distance; binoculars required). The lodge is conveniently set up (accommodation on one side, restaurant/bar on the other). They have a wine cellar (but the wines are not extraordinary, it would be nice to invest in a couple...

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
