We stayed at the Lion Valley Lodge on the Nambiti Reserve and loved it. They are a "eco" reserve which means that the animals are left in as natural a state as possible. They don't feed them or bait them to a location or use...More

Fabulous guides. Lots of animals on each trip. Got very close to them and able to enjoy watching them in their natural Habitat. Wonderful!

Never again. Hardly any wildlife. Terrible food. Expensive. Definitely something one should give a miss.

Good for game viewing and relaxation. Easy to get to by car from Gauteng. 4 of big 5 in one day, Leopard still outstanding. Plenty of Kudu, Zebra. Never been that close to elephants and some other animals.

The animals are in good condition, very green and lush especially after so much rain - and can recommend Ndaka as THE place to stay
