This tented lodge is the best experience of our trip to S-Africa. The tents were very luxurious, beautiful decorated, And very clean! Amazing view from our own litlle swimming pool. The staff was very kind, and warm. Dave, our ranger was amazing! We learned a lot from him! The food was truly delicious! Mama Grace is a great Chef. The massage we had was lovely, with a nice view. We definitly want to come back one day...

Words can’t describe Nkomazi , from when we arrived until we left everything was perfect .

The staff are extremely friendly and the management phenomenal.

Our game drive was an amazing experience. PAUL our ranger is very knowledgeable and his passion for his job speak a thousand words!!!

The tents are luxurious (with a very comfortable king size bed) and have an outside Victorian Bath and private pool.

The food was 5 star quality, excellently presented and delicious. All drinks were included and the mini bar was stocked up and replenished daily.

The game viewing and awesome sunsets are mind blowing.

You can’t go wrong with this Game Reserve, Nkomazi is excellent value for money !!!

I wish you the same EXCELLENT experience as we had 

Room Tip: Tent 12 It is the furthest tent and most private

By far one of my best holidays! Ulrich and Arline are great managers! Make you feel soooo welcome! They go out of their way to make you feel special! Our game ranger and host, Paul, WOW! His knowledge and energy is great! We learned so much from him! Tracking, different grass species, trees, animals, etc etc.

Tents is not called luxury tents for nothing! Very well done! The bed is the closest to heaven you will get!

Game drives were great! Paul tracked the animals, went of the road, proper 4x4, amazing knowledge sharing. Great sightings! Nothing to much for them. Went for a walk in the reserve! Very nice walk. On each game drive return, warm facecloths and drinks! Something small but make you feel special.

Spa treatments amazing! Very relaxing!

Overall experience great! We will be back!!!!!! If you want a great experience, visit Nkomazi game reserve!

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.

Room Tip: Tents are either hillside or riverside. I had a riverside room in the trees which was perfect for me - sun lovers looking to lie in the sun might prefer asking for a hillside room
