The drives were so good, none of us could quite believe the amazing sights in front of us. I would recommend the lodge to anyone. We were all... More

Beautiful setting with just four lodges for guests. Extremely comfortable and authentic. The management team of Lenay, Andre and Dean made this trip go far beyond any of our expectations. They were professional, welcoming and so very accommodating we did not want to leave!! Andres expertise with cameras also ensured we captured the memories brilliantly and he spent a considerable...

Just spent 3 nights at this fabulous lodge with friends from Cape Town. Only 4 rooms, so we had the whole place to ourselves which was great. Fantastic game viewing, Bekson and Andries really went out of their way to ensure that we had great sightings. Food was also fabulous. We have stayed at a number of lodges in Southern... More

Visiting this Lodge is a must for those wanting to see the Big 5! We had travelled up from Hazyview where we had spent the past five days going in and out of the Kruger National Park on a daily bais. The three days spent at N'kaya Lodge will remain with us forever. From the accommodation to the sumptuous meals... More

My mother and I recently stayed at Nkaya for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Having been on an amazing safari in Kenya five years years ago, where we stayed in larger /busier lodge accommodation, we weren't sure if this safari would live up to our high expectations. Our lodge was most comfortable and having two bathrooms was great.... More
