From the moment we arrived at Nedile lodge until our return road trip to Jo'burg we spent a few days in heavenly bliss. The committed and kind staff did their utmost to accommodate and pamper us. Delicious food (compliments to the cook!), beautiful rooms and of course the view over Welgevonden reserve was to die for. The early morning and... More

A friend hired the entire lodge for his birthday. What a stunning place. Rooms beautiful, views spectacular, game drives interesting, informative and some real adrenalin. Good was spectacular. What made it really special though were the management and staff. They make you feel so incredibly relaxed and welcome. I can't wait to go back!

We spent the first four nights of our honeymoon at Nedile Lodge and would not hesitate to recommend it. Our room was stunning - very private and nicely decorated. The view was incredible and they have really made the most of it with large windows and an outdoor shower. The complimentary toiletries were also very good quality! The staff all... More

From the moment we were collected at the Gate till we left - sadly - we could not have had a better stay. The Lodge is beautiful with a fantastic view over the valley. The game drives with Barend were spectacular, not only for the big game but also for the smaller animals, plants and flowers. There are so many... More

We just came back from two nights at Nedile after a work conference near Johannesburg. Our time there was simply fantastic and we will certainly look forward to visiting again. Welgenvonden is a large but relatively intimate game reserve due to the small number of commercial lodges and the fact that they are all small. Nedile is no exception and... More

Sometimes you just don't know what you don't know ... I didn't realise a different perspective was all that was needed and I certainly got that here! Nestled quietly and comfortably in the natural habitat Nedile Lodge is unassumingly breath-taking. Quietly but consciously every person who shares this space takes an interest in the clients, the lodge and everything in... More

We visited Nedile Lodge this past weekend from Saturday 13 September to Monday 15 September 2014. What a pleasant weekend! The hosts, Anece and Michael Jones (Michael is also the game ranger) are attentive and wonderful hosts, and the rest of the staff, Barend, Jonathan, Minkie and the rest of the staff are friendly, courteous, and extremely attentive. Minkie's food... More

I have just returned today to work from Madikwe Game Reserve. We visited one of the lodges there for three nights. A first for us. To give the you guys praise at Nedile. Being at Nedile a couple of times already – we decided to do a change of scenery. What a disappointment. It was ok – BUT not al... More
