Oh my goodness, what can i say this is the most amazing place in the world. I have never been to a place with such an amazing and attentive staff! Every single person there made you feel like family! It was so comfortable, and over the top amazing. We would come home from a long drive and have a warm bath drawn and waiting for us in our huts, and every night there would be a water heater at the end of your bed to make sure it was warm. They really went above and beyond. The guides were amazingly patient and knowledgeable answering all of the millions of questions we had about all the animals and plants. They were very accommodating and flexible, it was really a trip for you if you wanted to go for a drive they would happily load up the cars with plenty of drinks and blankets if it was cold.Or if only half the group wanted to go they would take one car out and leave the rest of the group at home to enjoy the amazing scenery. The resort is positioned in a half circle around a water hole where there is almost always animals. The scene is surreal, it was gorgeous and amazing to be so close to the animals. We would be eating a meal and all of a sudden there would be as many as 8 elephants drinking out of the pool less than 20 yards from the table. Speaking of eating the food was amazing! We were in Africa for 2 weeks and all agree that the food we ate at Nehimba was by far the best! I would go again and recommend Nehimba to all; family, friends, acquaintances and strangers!
