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

I have stayed at a lot of 'game lodges' in Southern Africa but this one was the best by far. I stayed with my son and ex-wife and despite her relentless efforts not to enjoy herself even she said it was the best! The game ranger was knowledgeable and the game walk something of a first (although in my army... More

We have been fortunate to visit many Game lodges in Sabi Sands reserve but we have found the best for overall relaxation, enjoyment and viewing - a home away from home ! The young crew running the lodge were friendly, helpful , informative and gave exceptional hospitality. We will certainly visit again and gladly recommend to friends, colleagues and business... More

I stayed at Nkorho Bush Lodge in 2009 with my son and we just had the best time there (see previous TripAdvisor review if you are remotely interested!), and when my wife agreed to come to the African continent for the first time in 2014, Nkorho was at the top of my list of places to take her. And we... More

As always it was great. Saw a lot less game than we used to before - not talking about the big five. - talking about other general game. Our guide was good but a little constructive criticism - he needs to consider stopping and explaining the different trees and smaller species and birds to the client, it's not only about... More

Off the bat, I would like to highlight that we are not able to stay at Nkorho due to changes in our travel plans. However, their customer service was the best that I have experienced in a very long time. My significant other and I are planning our trip on our own and I had many questions about the lodge,...
