Nedile means (I think) gentle breeze and you certainly feel the peace of a special place. As you walk into the lodge you immediately feel the warmth of the welcome from the staff but also from the very tasteful decoration and furnishing of the large sitting room. Then you turn to the left and you are captured by the fabulous view of the veranda and the vista of the bush beyond. I have been in the South African winter and the summer, and both times this is a special place. Whether sitting around a large fire staring up at the uncluttered southern sky at night or sitting on the veranda sharing a chilled bottle of wine after a trip into the bush, the experience is truly calming. And then there are the showers outside - liberating as you stand under the water looking out over the bush. And then there are the trips to the bush to see those naughty guys the elephants, the rhinos, the giraffes, watching a troop of baboons making their way to a watering hole in true military style. And then ... there's the hope of one day seeing a lion - but that's not the only reason to go back which I most certainly will.
