We chose Namibiti Hills as a destination for our mini-honeymoon and we were absolutely amazed at our experience. It was my first 5-star lodge and I would find it difficult to safari any other way. The staff, right from the General Manager to the Bartender, were absolutely friendly and super accommodating. The food was amazing each day and the game drives were perfect too! 10 out of 10 recommend to anyone locally and internationally.

We spent two nights at Nambiti Hills and did not want to leave. The experience is 5 star, and the staff incredible, but equally manage to maintain a down-to-earth and welcoming atmosphere. We'd love to return for another spoil.

Wonderful game lodge with excellent staff. Our game driver Siya was fantastic. Rooms were very spacious and beds comfortable. Food was delicious and plenty. The views from the lodge and pool deck are very special. Animal sightings were good. Many little things that make your stay special. Highly recommend this lodge.

The rooms are great! Spacious, and loved the deco and big bathtub. Biggie our guide was amazing!!! Food was delicious_ took long most days Spa was out of this world- booked 90 minutes but was literally 68minutes, (and no, we were not late, we were early infact), tried to raise it with the manager, who just dismissed it like he did several other complaints

Fantastic 3 days in the bush, excellent lodge with amazing dedicated staff. Worth a visit. The food was of a very high standard. We saw a varied amount of game and the guide made it an enjoyable experience.

The staff and food were exceptional - we had the most indulgent two days and can't wait to be back. Thank you to OB, our game ranger, who taught us so much and to all the staff for being so accommodating and looking after every guest in such an effortless way.

My wife and I loved out stay here at Nambiti Hills. The game viewing was excellent, the rooms are lovely and the staff are warm and friendly. Wish we could have spend longer! The food was marvellous. Good variety on the menu and every option delicious. We enjoyed the spa and a bit of time at the pool as well. Can't wait to visit again!
