What an incredible stay we had at Nedile Lodge celebrating our wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived and were met at the gate by Barend, to the time we said our goodbyes - everything was perfect. Our 2 game drives a day were very entertaining and extremely comfortable, especially the welcomed blankets and hot water bottles for the early...

Nedile is a small, lodge, well positioned for access to Pretoria and Johannesburg and offers a great luxury bush breakaway. Great rooms and bathrooms (with a view), public spaces that look over seemingly endless bush. A real little gem.

Nedile is a fabulous destination for game lovers who like to do it in luxury. A super friendly atmosphere, amazing game viewing and extremely knowledgable guides make this a great experience. You really feel like you are part of the Nedile family from the moment to arrive.

Enjoyed a fabulous weekend of R&R at Nedile Lodge. The experience was entertaining during game drives, quiet during nights, relaxing sitting on the deck enjoying stunning food a few drinks. With the chilly weather we enjoyed the warmth of a roaring fire, hot water bottles in our bed and on our laps during the game drives. The staff were attentive...

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...

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...

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...
