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.

Best stay during our trip 3-week trip in South Africa! Stayed for 2 nights in one of the very luxurious lodges. View from room/breakfast-luncharea, swimming pool is great, with a drinking spot not far from the lodge, where wildlife often can be seen. The welcoming, with explanations is very pleasant, as the service/friendliness as a whole is. The game drives... More

Had an amazing time. From the helpful staff, great food, amazing trackers, we couldn't have asked for a better adventure. Being on the private side of Kruger meant that we could go off-road and managed to see the top 5 animals We did a self-drive to Kruger. Have to advise those doing the same, to keep their eye out for... More

Staying at Nkorho Bush Lodge gave us an amazing safari experience, the service was impeccable, the views were amazing and so was the food. The lodge itself was decent, spacious though not luxurious. Amenities were basic (doors had no lock, no safe in room, bathroom had no door (only lodge 3) etc), but in the middle of nowhere I guess... More

We spent three nights at Nkorho and had a great time. The safari was amazing and the service perfect. The place is wonderful, people were very friendly without being intrusive, the food and wine were very good, we have been lucky to see many animals such as lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, buffalos, antelopes of many different kinds, zebras, etc…....

We had a wonderful trip. The game sightings were amazing. The game rangers and other personal were excellent hosts and we left as friends. It was our 5th visit to this lodge and I would highly recommend it to anyone who want a unique bush and wild life experience. You have to stay at least 3 nights and make sure... More

Nkorho is in Sabi Sand, which is a private reserve near Kruger NP. What this basically means is that the rangers can take you off road, and the numbers are limited. The rangers at Nkorho are extremely knowledgeable and will take you around on game drives twice per day. We saw a pretty wide range of the African Animals and... More
