I could have spent my 2 weeks in South Africa here. 2 nights was NOT enough, 3 or 4 would have been ideal. The food was amazing and this is the perfect place to unplug, unwind and relax! The outdoor shower is so much fun and such a cool view. I really can't think of anything to make this better,... More

We had a very good stay at Nedile Lodge. It was a bit rushed due to us having one night only. Our room had the most fantastic view down the valley and across the mountains! The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly. Game viewing was not in abundance but we did have the... More

We couldn't have asked for a better start to our honeymoon in South Africa. Everything about Nedile Lodge is perfection. Our guide, Barend, was not only highly competent but witty and a general pleasure - and he found the elusive lions for us on our last morning. Clearly he loves his job and wants to make sure guests love Nedile... More

An unforgetable weekend out indeed, everything from the game drives, the room decor, the hospitality from the staff and the food was excellent, and it goes without saying that will go back some time soon again. It was a sweethome away from home. Mmmmm...the cosy fire place both in the lounge and in our room...

This is the third time I have visited Nedile in just over a year, and it is still as awesome as my first visit. Delicious food; superb and comfortable accommodation (although 3/4 beds would be a great upgrade for non-couple travelers); sweet and professional staff; spectacular views; excellent and knowledgeable safari guides (sky and land); serene and soothing environment for...

What an incredible stay we had at Nedile Lodge celebrating our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived and were met at the gate by Barend, to the time we said our goodbyes - everything was perfect. Our 2 game drives a day were very entertaining and extremely comfortable, especially the welcomed blankets and hot water bottles for the early... More

Nedile is a small, lodge, well positioned for access to Pretoria and Johannesburg and offers a great luxury bush breakaway. Great rooms and bathrooms (with a view), public spaces that look over seemingly endless bush. A real little gem.

Nedile is a fabulous destination for game lovers who like to do it in luxury. A super friendly atmosphere, amazing game viewing and extremely knowledgable guides make this a great experience. You really feel like you are part of the Nedile family from the moment to arrive.

Enjoyed a fabulous weekend of R&R at Nedile Lodge. The experience was entertaining during game drives, quiet during nights, relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying stunning food a few drinks. With the chilly weather we enjoyed the warmth of a roaring fire, hot water bottles in our bed and on our laps during the game drives. The staff were attentive... More

Venue has a beautiful view and setting, staff very friendly and helpful. Lighting around cupboards in room needs to be improved. Suggest put coat hooks in room. Suggest attach mirror inside cupboard more firmly. Cappuccino coffee was very weak - coffee can be strengthened. Food quality was good. Crunchie biscuits were awesome. Wifi connections would be great. Will definitely be... More
