We had the most incredible 3 nights at Nambiti Hills and were so welcome by the staff. Our game driver Kel was amazing, we were so lucky to have him. Even though we imagine he does this every single day, twice a day, the enthusiasm he has for any animal sighting is so genuine and he makes you feel so...

This was my second trip to Nambiti Hills. It was just as memorable as the first one. The staff are friendly and the rooms are first class. While the actual game reserve is relatively small, we still managed to see lions up close and personal on 3 of our 4 game drives. We were also lucky enough to see the...

Overall we had a good experience at Nambiti, despite poor weather. That said we did have comments to make about one of the rangers. These were voiced to management twice after we left but on neither occasion did we get any response or acknowledgment. Since one of the points of complaint was rather serious, given the game park is committed...

This was the first time we had been to a game reserve in South Africa. We were looking for a place not so far from the Drackensberg and did not want to go as far as the Kruger area. Its also not a malaria area. Before we went, we thought it was quite expensive. But on seeing the place, staying...

I travelled with friends from England. Having never been on a safari I was unsure what to expect. The lodge sits on an elevated site which gives you panoramic views across the reserve.
