We had an amazing weekend at Nyala Sands! From the moment we arrived we were spoilt by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. The rooms were absolutely stunning and spacious and included a huge shower facing the bush. The communal areas were tastefully decorated and the campfire views just unbelievable! Our guide, Wes, made this an unforgettable trip as he went the extra mile to show us extraordinary sightings but also took the time to tell and show us about nature's little wonders. He really knows what he is talking about! It is an experience that we will treasure forever and will highly recommend.

After reading many reviews on various lodges we opted to stay at the Nyala Safari Lodge and we are extremely pleased with our choice. Everything about this place is perfect ,from the beautifully decorated rooms to their spectacular views of the African bush, delicious fresh cooked meals, but mostly, what made this place well beyond a 5 star rating for us is their exceptional staff. Their dedication and attention to the smallest details is heartwarming. A particular thank you to Wesley, our guide , who’s knowledge and commitment made for an unforgettable experience. We were also very lucky to have encountered a beautiful pack of African wild dogs which are rarely seen. We will definitely be back soon I hope. Silvana and Gianni

Wes mentioned the special time he had with you at the wild dog sighting. I remember watching the pups fight for scraps, it took 5 minutes and there was nothing left

We were a party of 5 couples on a self catering basis. The kitchen is fully kitted out with anything and everything you may need, 2 tall fridges and a freezer. The chalets are spacious, the decor is lovely, a very comfortable home away from home. Our game guide, Nicole, was a wealth of information and infectious enthusiasm. We saw 4 of the big 5 over our 2 day stay. Would we go back............most definitely!! We would like to make this an annual get away, Nyala is purfect for a big family or group of friends.

Stayed here for 7nights for our honeymoon absolutely amazing place. Lovely people, lovely accommodation and lovely food. We managed to see 3 of the big 5 but so many more animals, birds and insects. Wes our ranger was an absolute legend. Such a nice guy and so knowledgeable that he made every drive we had so fascinating. Following the lions was one of my highlights. Would 100% go back to Nyala.

We stayed at Nyala Safari Lodge for 6 days from May 6th 2019. The staff instantly made you feel at home. They really went the extra mile especially when it came to my partner proposing. They surprised us with a private picnic in the bush watching the sunset, it truly was magical! Thank you to Debbie, Nikki and Kari for organising such a special moment. Wes our game driver was incredible. He made everything interesting with his knowledge of the Bush. We were very fortunate to see so many animals. The thrill of tracking them down will never be forgotten. The food was lovely and they were very accomadating with my food allergies. I will be asking for the recipes! We hope to return back to Nyala Lodge in the future and hopefully Wes can find us those Lions! Megan and Ollie x
