Overall we had a good experience at Nambiti, despite poor weather. That said we did have comments to make about one of the rangers. These were voiced to management twice after we left but on neither occasion did we get any response or acknowledgment.

This was the first time we had been to a game reserve in South Africa. We were looking for a place not so far from the Drackensberg and did not want to go as far as the Kruger area. Its also not a malaria area. Before we went, we thought it was quite expensive. But on seeing the place, staying...

The attention to detail, attentiveness from all the staff, the decor of the rooms, the food, the game sightings, the knowledge of the game rangers, quality of the vehicles are all of a very high standard. This was my 2nd visit to Nambiti Hills, and I am afraid to try another. I found my favorite dessert: Dark Chocolate Lindt Ice-cream...

I travelled with friends from England. Having never been on a safari I was unsure what to expect. The lodge sits on an elevated site which gives you panoramic views across the reserve. The attention to detail is remarkable. From the very tastefull decor to the delightful staff, it was a treat. The lodge could only accommodate me for one...

We were so excited for this holiday and booked the honeymoon suite for us for a special treat. The lodge looks really great from the outside and is nicely decorated. The attention to detail though could be better throughout for a five star accommodation. We got disappointed by the kitchen on the first night already. The food was mostly fried,...
