My wife and I had the most amazing time on honeymoon at Nedile. Michael, Anica, Barend and the team were so attentive and friendly. The game drives in morning and evening were amazing and we got to see so much and very close too. Elephants, lions, giraffes, hippos, rhinos, zebra, wilderbeast, leopard, cheetahs, a whole range of antelope... even honey... More

Our stay at Nedile Lodge was one to remember for many years to come. The staff, atmosphere, location, and everything about it was perfect. The safaris included in it are really nice and you get to see all the big game animals (perhaps except the buffalo). Elephants pass by the Lodge to drink water from the pool, and you can... More

Five stars all the way. First of all 35,000 ha of pristine African bush to be explored twice a day, at 6.30 am and at 3.30pm. Add to that an excellent facility with ultra private and luxurious rooms and you have the foundation for success. EVen though it was winter we saw Lion, Leopard, cheetah, Rhino, Jackal, Elephant and Giraffe... More

This was the second time we have stayed at a game reserve - at Nedile it was for five nights. Early morning wake up calls were accompanied with coffee and flapjacks. Upon return the breakfast was delicious mixture of cold and hot selections. It then only seemed a short amount of time before lunch then comes around. And post the... More

We've stayed in many game lodges, most of them fantastic but Nedile is an exceptional place. It's small and intimate and staffed by absolutely lovely people that made our holiday perfect. The rooms have beautiful views as the lodge is on a ridge and you can see animals from your bathtub. Elephants visit the swimming pool to drink while you... More

We had a great 10 year wedding anniversary at Nedile. The staff even organised special candles and a small bottle of bubbly for our celebration! The meals were delicious, the room spacious with everything we needed, the bath had a beautiful view over the valley and the outdoor shower was amazing. We also enjoyed falling asleep with the fire crackling... More

We staid for 3 nights at Nedile and did 6 game drives with Micheal. Micheal is very knowledgeable about all the wildlife in the park(ranger of the year!) and an excellent host during the game drives and at the lodge. His wife Anika is also very friendly and she makes sure that your stay is up to the highest standards.... More

When it came to choosing a place for the family to celebrate my mother's 85th birthday, there was no debate. Having visited Nedile six times in the last 10 years, we knew that we could rely on the team to deliver a very special experience. And they did not disappoint. Having flown in from four corners of the world, we... More
