“Always a great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

It was our second experience at Nambiti Hills Lodge and again from the facilities to the services, everything was so perfect that we would like to visit again. We could see Leopard and Lions during our stay and we were so excited about that. Highly recommended!

Our experience at Nambiti was something we will treasure forever. From the amazing ambiance, the gracious staff, the abundance of game, the option to visit the Cheetah Conservation Project and the fabulous vegetarian food specially prepared for us .... it certainly exceeded expectations. We stayed only 2 nights and if we return in a year or two I would definitely book at least an extra day, or three!

We loved Nambiti, incredibly peaceful & beautiful. The room was amazing, lived the giant tub and general decor. During the day it was so quiet around the lodge - I really enjoyed sitting by the tiny pool looking out over the amazing game reserve. Food impeccable. The game drives were made by the great guides who really knew their stuff and cared about your experience. The lodge host was a bit ditzy and often forgot she was looking into something for me (the massage I requested, the fact our roof window was wedged open) but that didn't detract from the whole experience.

If we would have to replan the whole journey, Nambiti Hills would definitely be in it. We loved our stay. There were the little things that made our stay unforgettable, our Guides Regi and André (thanks a lot again for telling us your stories and showing us the big 5 - except the Leopards - which are very hard to find), the room and the privacy we had (only 16 guests), the view from the terrace and the fireplace. This was our first Bush Visit ever and they made our stay unforgettable. If we plan to visit South Africa again Nambiti Hills would definitely be the place!

We had an amazing stay at Nambiti Hills last week! From the moment we dropped off our car and were collected by the game ranger, we felt completely relaxed, and let others do the thinking for us.
The staff were very friendly and we had the feeling like we had been before, with the warm reception we recieved. Our game drive was unbelievable!We saw the famous one tusk Elephant Beefy, Rhino, Hippo and plenty of buck.
The food was exceptional: real fine dining. A couple of glases of wine around the outdoor fireplace was the perfect end to a great day, and the luxury bath watching the sun rise from our bedroom was the perfect start to the new day.
I would recommend a stay at Nambiti to anyone and we will definitely be going back soon!

Nambiti Game Reserve is awesome! There is quite a few lodges to choose from in terms of accommodation and game drives. This reserve is huge and my fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You have to go to this place!!!

I cannot fault Nambiti in any way and I have stayed at many game reserves throughout southern Africa. The service was excellent, the rooms are both beautifully designed and über luxurious and the food was sensational. Bryce is a superb cook and we had some memorable meals. The rangers were very knowledgeable and friendly and overall I can really recommend Nambiti as it represents excellent value for money.
