    Spent Easter weekend at Nkomazi. Excellent venue; great service and the staff are well trained and all very friendly. Game drives were excellent and adventurous as times. Went to see some rock paintings.

    This is a great private game reserve with the most amazing views and scenery. It looked like Scotland but with African animals. Quite Special. The 'hotel' itself was really lovely and luxurious. Rooms well spaced out along the river or higher up the hill. Food...More

    On expedia it mentions this reserve is all inclusive but the only thing I see is free breakfast. what are typical charges for lunch and dinner on the property? I am looking to book for my honeymoon next Oct 2016. Is there a best time of year to come to spot animals such as elephants, giraffes and lions?

    Breakfast is included at about 9.30, after the game drive. At 3 there's a big afternoon tea with a lovely spread. Dinner at 7. Always snacks and free drinks on the drives. Food absolutely great!
