I just finished six nights at the Bushcamp in the Paperbark suite. The suite was spacious, well fitted out and very clean. All staff were friendly and attended to all our needs. They did this in an unobtrusive way. The food was top notch and very fresh. The portion sizes where just right so you didn't feel over full for... More

I have just returned from a magical trip to South Africa, and Naledi was an absolute highlight. Of course I booked based on all the great reviews and the team did not let us down. Early July is winter there and the Enkoveni camp was closed as they renovate two new suites. I stayed in Paperbark which is totally charming... More

First of all, this review is long overdue as I didn't have a tripadvisor account at the time we attended. Our time at Naledi is one of the most unforgettable experiences of our lives. Our room was spectacular. Really spacious as well. However as great as the room was what we enjoyed most were the morning and evening safaris. Kjell... More

luxurious living with awesome food. if animal viewing is your only concern this place may not be for you, but if enjoying a luxurious vacation is, then it will be. staff is really helpful and available at all times.

My husband and I spent four wonderful nights at Naledi in September for our honeymoon. The experience was definitely one of the highlights of our 2.5 week trip.   We stayed in both Bushcamp (Paperbark Suite) and Enkoveni (Bushbuck Suite) for two nights each. Bushcamp felt more rustic and laid back. Its smaller size made the camp quieter and immediately... More

I have been to Naledi Enkoveni twice in two years, and both times were absolutely top notch. The safaris go out twice a day and the guides are very knowledgeable. The meals are also divine - prepare to eat like royalty! Another enjoyable part of the experience is meeting other adventurers - the camp holds about 12 people or so,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Enkoveni Camp in October and had a marvelous three full days. The staff is friendly and capable, the food was very nice and the surroundings peaceful. Our room overlooked the river - flowing even in the dry late winter - and provided great midday game watching from our deck. That was the only... More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at Naledi in the Marula Suite and it exceeded every expectation we had. The game drives were amazing - tracking the animals and getting the opportunity to observe them without rushing and crowds of people was great. The guides and trackers were all very friendly and the host, Kjell,, was our guide on... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just four magnificently appointed chalets sleeping only eight people, right in the heart of Big Five country within the borders of the greater Kruger National Park!!!! Without a doubt, Naledi offers you the most personal, intimate experience anywhere In the region – and at a price often less than half of what you would expect to pay elsewhere! At Naledi we only ever have a maximum of eight guests on our game viewer, only eight relaxing on our beautiful swimming pool deck overlooking the river bed and our private waterhole where one can enjoy the daily parade of animals and birds coming to drink and feed in total peace and tranquility. Our lodge is our passion, showing people our private piece of wild Africa our greatest pleasure, and that means introducing you to the bush and all its creatures, from lions and elephants, to antelope and birds is something we always look forward to ! At Naledi you’ll find aircon throughout, delicious meals, elegant surroundings, a fabulously stocked bar, fun, relaxation and excitement in equal portions, but best of all, you’ll arrive as strangers, and leave as friends!! ... more   less
