If you want to live calmly and pleasantly this is the perfect place! Have never been so well received, Olaf and Stephanie are wonderful hosts! Cozy cottages to live, great food and pleasant dinners! In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about animals...More
Were there 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. The best place to stay. The best food. The best service. Rest, nature, animals, the best ranger. Stayed there for weeks at a time and never a dull moment. Stephanie and Olaf really understand the meaning of a...More
We stayed with our family with three older kids two nights at Nsele park lodge. We were welcomed by Olaf (the Bushman) and his wife Stephany. Nice and cosy rooms in bush style around a somewhat small swimming pool. Both the breakfast lunch and diner...More

No there is an extra charge for game drives. There are two types of sighting opportunities available (1) game drives or walks on the property - since they are on a conservation center that has many animals, and (2) game drives in Krueger park. I agree with others that going with the guide was worthwhile - Olaf's "helper" named "Akani" is excellent at spotting animals - he has an uncanny eye.
Olaf falls asleep at the wheel while driving (scary) - but fortunately Akani is there to nudge him awake
Make sure you make it a point to visit the white lion cubs who are at the lodge next door - priceless experience.
