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

Visited Nedile Lodge for two nights in June and was very impressed by the overall experience and especially the service level of all who work at Nedile from the booking staff to the lodge staff. The setting of the lodge with its magnificent view over the valley makes for amazing sunsets and the deck overlooking the pool is an ideal... More

WOW. I don't even know where to start with reviewing Nedile Lodge. My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in the middle of May (the first part of a 2 week holiday in SA) and we were blown away. It will be something neither of us will ever forget - easily the most beautiful, peaceful and magical place we... More

As a South African living in Canada, I knew exactly how to search for the best safari experience whilst visiting home: 1) Choosing a location where there are no malaria infected mosquitoes which is 2) easily accessible from a major city (Pretoria), 3) is home to Africa's magnificent BIG 5 and 4) supplies game drives and meals within the package...

The best place ever. Loved the room, loved the view, loved the staff, loved the food, the game drives, the reserve...just everything. It's hard to put the magic of Nedile into words. Thank you Michael & Anica for what was one of the best trips of our lives. Sometimes when I'm at work I think of afternoons by your pool... More

Nothing I could say about this place would do it justice. From the superb rooms, the very up-close game viewing, the food and the location, the 3 nights we had here were faultless. Forget anywhere else, just go here.

Thank you for making our recent wedding anniversary celebration so magical and memorable. Michael and Anica run one of the finest bush lodges we have ever had the pleasure of visiting: they are both gracious hosts and their passion, warmth, generosity, personal service and attention to detail extend to each and every member of their staff. Everyone made us feel... More

Had my husband's 40th at Nedile with friends - everything was perfect - from the amazing location and rooms, breathtaking game drives and excellent food to the hospitality and friendliness of Anieka, Michael and all staff. Will definitely be back!

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....
