We really enjoyed our stay at Nambiti, especially the amazing hospitality. Our game ranger William was exceptional in his knowledge of the bush, wonderful humour and enthusiasm. He catered for our special interests and in two game drives William identified over fifty five different bird species. We will definitely request to have the same ranger next time!

Being able to see a variety of wildlife was incredible. The game ranger was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about African wildlife during my stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. Peaceful, restful and perfect getaway from city life

I was overwhelmed by the experience offered at Springbok Lodge. From arrival through to departure, the service, food, accommodation and staff were first-class. Personally, I can not give enough praise to our ranger Kiegan. Not only was he full of knowledge about the reserve and its inhabitants, he was friendly and went over and above to ensure our adventures were... More

What a fabulous place to spend some time. Everything at Springbok Lodge from arrival through to departure was first-class. The luxury tents are so comfortable and the food and hospitality provided by the staff is second-to-none. It’s also a great location for some R&R. However, our visit was made so much better by our ranger Kiegan. He's very knowledgeable, friendly... More

Had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at Springbok Lodge - enjoyed the tented accommodation although found it rather chilly in mid-winter. The meals were of a very high standard and the tents very spacious (for a family of 4) and comfortable. The lodge lounge was also very inviting on cold evenings. Game drives were a highlight as usual.

May have been there for only 3 days but it felt like forever and never wanted to leave. An amazing place with fantastic service throughout our stay from the moment we got there. Cannot recommend our ranger Kiegan highly enough as he was incredibly helpful, knowledgable, fun and made our trip even better. When can I come back?

This place is awesome! From being greeted at the lodge through to leaving the level of service throughout was top class! Our game drives were with a very charismatic and knowledgeable guide named William. He catered for everyone's expectations especially when my wife piped up she was doing a bird list, he quickly set a target of 50 birds in... More
