Our 6-night stay at Nambiti Hills was the vacation of a lifetime. The hardest part was getting there; if you're flying in via Johannesburg, you have to arrange separate transportation to Nambiti which takes four to five hours by car (the lodge can help you arrange this though). The next hardest part was leaving -- we were genuinely sad to... More

I have been very fortunate to have experienced a number of memorable "bush" visits to various parks across the country. However, one of the top items on my "bucket list" was to experience a "5 star" bush holiday. Oh my gosh, was it worth the wait!?! Nambiti Hills ticked all the boxes for me. The lodge staff were phenomenal and... More

We recently enjoyed 2 nights at this game lodge and were treated to some fascinating game drives. Our game ranger and driver, Iris, had an exceptional knowledge of the wildlife and the environment. She was informative and kind enough to answer all our many questions. Additionally she was a fantastic driver and reacted swiftly when an elephant charged our vehicle.... More

Absolutely beautiful lodge, with fantastic service and welcoming, friendly staff. We had a great experience on the game drives with a really knowledgable and patient guide (Kel). We saw 4 of the big 5 and each drive was special in its own way. Thank you so much for the fabulous two night stay.

We have visited a few private game lodges so we did not have high expectations.. We were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed our short 2 night stay. I cannot fault anything - the rooms were lovely, food was good and we had some memorable sitings with our ranger Kel who was quite remarkable and very knowledgable. We will definitely be... More
