I spent 4 days and 3 nights at Nungubane Reserve. This was my second visit. It is more than worth the 21 hours of flight time to South Africa from Los Angeles. I'm not sure what I enjoy the most; the animals, the lodge, my chalet, the food, the quiet by the hide, or the marvelous guides, chefs, and host. A lion with his wildebeast dinner, rhinos with their babies, elephants pulling down trees, giraffes in a stately "parade", beautiful birds, monkeys swinging free...
Nungubane is a delight from the moment you arrive until the sad time when you leave. It's just grand and I can't wait to come again.

Room Tip: This is a 5 star reserve, not a hotel. The 5 chalets are equally private, quiet, and luxurious. You can't miss.

Loved this lodge!
Easy 3 hour drive from Joburg. All our transfers were handled smoothly from airport to coordination to the lodge from the west gate.
Our room was amazing!! Loved the huge deck overlooking the bush. And the lovely bathroom, bathtub and the fireplace.
Bed was heavenly.
Game viewing was superb. Thanks Jonathan!. We saw Elephants, Girafe, Lion, Zebra,Warthog, Wilderbeast and many more. We went out at 6.30am for 3 hours in the morning and 3.30pm for 3 hours in the evening all included in the price.
The food was excellent!! Soups, salad, Steaks, creme caramel ..perfectly thought out and nicely cooked.Thanks Miriam!
Drinks onsite were very reasonable and good selection.
The lodge was so tranquil!
Very luxurious without being pompous.
Exceptionally clean. Lovely staff.
I cannot recommend enough!
They cannot do enough to ensure you have an enjoyable stay!

We had a fantastic time at Nungubane. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent! And very tasty. We were very fortunate and got to see the Big 5! The highlights being the lion, leopard and elephant sightings! The lodge and chalets are top class and very comfortable. Each chalet has its own deck looking out into the bush. We liked the fire places! The lodge has a swimming pool for summer relaxation. Nungubane is great value for money. Welgevonden is a hidden gem that must be explored!
