“Outstanding Experience”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I agree with all positive comments about this place. We had a fantastic time here last December. The game drives, bush walk, meals, and overall service was just fantastic. My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the camp. Leif and his staff went all out to make this celebration special for us. Thanks again and we hope to be back in the near future.

I would like to thank the team at Naledi for providing an unforgettable experience to my 3 clients from Sweden recently. A 3 night safari holiday that had potential to be a disaster turned out to be one to remember. Some serious rain fall and flooding in Kruger caused the roads to be very muddy and could have caused potential game drive issues, The team at Naledi worked tirelessly around the clock to make sure my guests still managed to get out and experience the wildlife on offer and they even saw a pride of Lion feeding. On meeting them on arrival in Cape Town my guests only had fantastic things to say about Naledi and were extremely happy with their time on safari. This just shows you how far good service and communication can go when times get tough. Thanks Naledi I really appreciate all the efforts from you!

We enjoyed the most amazing holiday. Although we were only there for 2 nights, we saw 4 out of the big 5 including the elusive leopard, and lots more wildlife besides. We learnt so much about the animals, their behaviour, habitat etc. We stayed in Fishing Owl & then Bushbuck - both were lovely but Bushbuck was something special. Food & service were both great. Well done to Alicia & the team - we will never forget our stay at Naledi.

It is very hard to find any fault with Naledi. In fact, the only fault isn't their fault, but the illusive leopard who we sadly didn't see.
The setting is tranquil; complete with a family of giraffes walking up the river side when we arrived. The rooms spacious with high ceilings, river views, outside showers and big bubble baths (indulgently enjoyed with a glass of wine).
The service is friendly and very attentive without being overpowering. The food was also great, which I wasn't particularly expecting. Enjoyed with the company of our fellow guests.
The 'drives' were all an adventure, although I didn't expect to get so close, especially to the rhino that charged us much to our drivers humour. Apparently nothing to worry about?! Highlights included the early morning hippo spotting on our first morning and the family of elephants on our last drive. A lack of big cats was our only disappointed, but again not Naledi's fault.
So hundreds of photo's to sort through now to re-live the happy memories. If you're booked to visit, you're in for a treat.

I have spent four nights at Naledi Bushcamp. One thing I know for sure : One word isn't enough to describe my stay at Naledi Bushcamp. Outstanding, unforgettable, awesome, incredible... I was already here in 2009 - and even at this time I already thought that my stay couldn't have been better. But since then, they have improved one more time (in terms of the infrastructure)! Now the Lodge has a pool, which is very nice for those hot days in summer. The food was always very delicious and presented with love. The staff is very friendly and attentive. I felt very comfortable and looked after well! The ranchers and trackers made a great job. They tried very hard to find the big five for us - and we saw them several times! They even managed to find the wild dogs - which was a wonderful experience for all of us! The hideout offers a unique opportunity to spend a few hours (depending on your needs) in silence. I just loved it to be out there! I will come back for sure, and spend even more time at this outstanding place! Thank you to all the staff, that make it possible to spend a great and unforgettable time at a unique place!

If the option were available, my wife and I would give Naledi 6 stars. We stayed at the Enkoveni Camp for 6 nights and had an absolutely fantastic experience from beginning to end. Not only are the grounds and rooms (we stayed in the Impala Lily) truly incredible, what really sets this place apart are the people. From our long talks with Roz, meals with Shaun, daily rides with Sydwell and Oupa, and our interactions with the rest of the staff; this camp is beyond incredible. The morning/evening drives were an absolute blast and as an added bonus, you end up learning a lot about the animals and area. This review could easily go on-and-on but for simplicity sake: if you are planning a South African Safari trip, look no further.

Naledi means star and everything about our stay at Naledi Enkoveni Camp had star quality! We stayed in the Impala Lily suite and it was just beautiful and so comfortable. Every view be it from our bed, the inside or outside showers, the deep set bath or the luxurious day beds on our balcony were stunning. We watched crocs bask, monkeys get up to mischief, giraffes meander, elephants quench their thirst, impalas prance and the hippos taking a soak and listened to them laugh all from our lovely suite. The manager Alicia and her team catered to our every need perfectly with no fuss and always with a smile. The food was excellent. There were 3 families staying and we ate together and went out on the game drives together, Alica ate with us too, which was made the experience even more personal. Our Ranger Sydwell and Tracker Jimmy are incredible, their expertise meant we got very close to lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes to mention just a few! They took as much pleasure in seeing the animals as we did. Everything about our stay was perfect and we will return. If you are considering going on Safari, you won't do any better than Naledi Enkoveni camp.
