Had a very enjoyable break at Nsele. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff and management were kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed the game drives, very interesting and informative. We had the cabin overlooking the waterhole and saw a good variety of animals, Zebra, mongoose, buffalo, kudu to name a few. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks to everyone at Nsele for making our break so memorable and enjoyable.

We spend the weekend at Nsele Safari lodge,we were 4 adults and what an amazing place to relax,uplift your soul and enjoy nature to its best. Olaf,Stephanie & their staff are amazing people treating us like royalty the whole weekend. Game drives,bush walks,bicycle rides,swimming they've got it all.They catered for our special dietary needs as I am Type 1 Diabetic & my father vegetarian. We were spoilt rotten and I would recommend Nsele Safari Lodge everytime. They are without a doubt the BEST!!!

We were made welcome upon arrival by Stephanie and Olaf and the team. First a drink to celibrate the victory of the SA Rugby team. They serve the most wonderfull home cooked traditional African food - Spephanie caters for all needs. The night safari lead by Olaf was a very special experience and a very good alternative for the bush walk. (it was really too hot for a walk). Beautifull place of the beaten track but although accessible by most cars. Zebras in front of the fence. Very close to the Kruger park.

Stayed at Nsele for one week together with my family. And I must say this was one of the best travel-experiences in my life. Stephanie helped me a lot with the planning of the trip, arranging the transfer from the airport (Ashtons; really good), booking activities at place and took really good care of us all during our stay. Thanks to Olaf we had the luck to see all the Big 5 during our stay and we got the opportunity to be part of so much more than the activities we paid for. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived at Nsele. It is a quite small, cosy and very personal lodge in which you feel very comfortable and you live very close to a lot of animals; we saw both zebras, monkeys and mongooses by the waterhole just outside our veranda. And giraffs, warthogs, wildebeests, antilops etc etc just outside the fence. I highly recommend a stay at Nsele with Staphanie, Olaf and their great staff and I hope I will get the oppotunity to go back.
