My wife and I stayed here for 3 wonderful nights at the end of March. The lodge itself is absolutely fantastic with both inside and outside options for eating, drinking, relaxing etc. There are only a total of 5 rooms at this Lodge and with a maximum of 10 guests and 7 staff you are sure to be spoiled rotten....

It was a privilege to stay at Nedile Lodge! The people are warm, the lodges are clean and have a private area and the food is very good. The game drives were also very fun and the area is beautiful! You feel like you're in the safari..

Wonderful experience. Very professional staff and beautiful setting. Food was good, not too much as with some other lodges. All our needs were met to have a quiet retreat and reconnect as a couple. The mini-gym was a welcome find especially since it wasn't considered acceptable behavior to let my husband run behind the vehicle during game drives for some... More

From the moment we met Michael on the Friday lunchtime until we left on Sunday our stay was exceptional, everyone takes so much effort... More

We have been to two other lodges in Welgevonden, but this one was an experience to remember. Besides the excellent service and friendliness by all the staff, the highlight of our trip was the excellent game drives, accompanied by Barend. From lions, to close encounters with elephant and experiencing a cheetah hunt, this was a memorable fun filled stay. Barend... More

Having chosen Nedile Lodge and Welgevonden a bit randomly, I was overcome by the lodge's beauty and character, Welgevonden's varied landscape and superb game views, and the warm professionalism of Nedile's staff. Excellent value for money! I definitely aim to return.

We chose Nedile Lodge because of the beautiful pictures and the rates which were way cheaper than other Luxury Lodges we'd considered. Well, the pictures really don't do it justice, it's even way more beautiful in real! The staff was amazing too, we felt so much like at home that we almost wanted to help ourselves at the bar of...

We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday at Nedile Lodge. The staff, service and food were perfect. Thank you to all for an amazing experience. If it weren't so far away, we would return in an instant! We highly recommend staying at the Nedile Lodge, you won't be disappointed!

We have returned from our annual sojourn to Nedile and can once again say it is the best place ever. From the welcome at the West Gate to the final drive back to our vehicle we can honestly say that Nedile just gets better and better each year. Barend welcomed us on 31st December and so started another wonderful experience.... More
