Nice rooms, with lovely views - very comfortable. The rangers were very good with plentiful wildlife to be seen. Great service and good food. I personally prefer Lions Valley lodge, due to the layout of their rooms, but this is a good alternative...

Once again Nambiti Hills lived up to our expectations. The staff are great and always around to assist. The food is excellent and plentiful. Iris the game guide is one of the best, very knowledgeable and read her guests very well. A fabulous long weekend again, this lodge is one to keep on coming back to.

We stayed at Nambiti Hills for 3 nights. The suites are amazing and do not disappoint at all. When we arrived almost too late for the afternoon drive, the staff made sure they got us checked-in and fed before embarking on our first ever game-drive. We saw way more than we initially thought we would. The park has loads of...

We just returned from six nights here- it was great. The individual lodges are comfortable (lovely big bath!) and the game drives were top notch. Food was very good although by the end of the week we did think it was getting a bit repetitive as they don't change the menu. The afternoon teas were a highlight. This is a...

Well where to begin. If Safari is on your mind this is the place for you. The setting is exceptional as are the staff,nothing was too much trouble. Because this is a small lodge, 9 lodges in all even at full capacity there are still only 18 people which made the atmosphere feel like we were on holiday with friends....

It was everything we expected of a dream safari vacation and more.. from the first impression of the luxurious lodge, the first bite of the food, and the first game drive to the end of our 6 night stay!

What a fabulous place. We had the most amazing stay and were looked after in every respect. It's a small lodge but that means you truly get a personal and bespoke service. A big shout out to Kelly, Sphiwe, Thandie and Joe our ranger. Nothing was too much trouble and our every need was taken care of. The rooms are...

We have just come back from an amazing stay at Nambiti Hills. This was our third safari and the best we have been on both in terms of animal sightings and the lodge. Our safari guide Kingsley expertly sought out great game viewings for us including frequent lion sightings (eating, sleeping, on the move), elephant herds including 2 little ones...
