Nkomazi is a definite asset to Mpumalanga and is highly recommended if you are looking for a quality offering in a natural setting that is quiet and uncrowded. May seems to be the perfect month to visit as this is the shoulder season before European Summer vacation and the locals thinking winter has already arrived. A last minute decision to spend the weekend away saw "Bushbreaks" shortlisting 3 alternatives within 4hrs drive of JHB. I'm so glad that I chose Nkomazi and I will return. The staff are all friendly and very helpful. The rangers are very knowledgeable (Heinrich especially), all the game drives very well done, and the attention to a wide variety of aspects (birds, tracks, small animals) very refreshing; Michelle in the Retreat is simply brilliant. A massage with her is a must. Replacing a game drive with a walk was also well worth the request. All food is good, the setting stunning, views of mountains, rivers and bush all lovely. All in all a solid choice for a weekend away from JHB. I will return and stay longer.
