Absolutely best ranger one could have. Extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and ensures guests have the best experience possible--without question Ella makes the experience complete and a true family experience for everyone! Lodging staff was courteous and made sure rooms were spotless, kitchen was clean, meal time was prepped to perfection. Accommodations were spotless - furnishings were well kept. Outdoor sitting area was amazing and viewing lodge was perfect for the end of the day gathering with family. Definitely would recommend if you want to see wildlife by the best ranger in South Africa.

A Bush experience top class on every level!. We recently visited Nkala for a special family birthday and the total experience was absolute luxury and comfort. The staff was excellent, the decor of all the rooms are beautiful , amenities in the rooms are 5 star. Elsabe is an incredible game ranger and really went the extra mile with our group and we had wonderful sightings. The chef ( Golden) is wonderful creative cook and it was definitely worth it to book the chef to have no-hassle but still flexible self-catering comfort. The entertainment areas are so well-thought out, the waterhole lounge, outside braai, undercover Patio, Splashpool.... Nkala ticks the boxes on every level and our family had a very special time and will be coming back again! Thank you Nkala for a wonderful bush experience!

Nkala Lodge welcomes you with a stylish communal reception area opening out onto various outside braais, seating areas and a pool. The huge reception area consists of a lounge, dining area, bar and fully equipped self catering kitchen (with a creative young chef always eager to help with food preparation and cooking). All staff at Nkala are friendly and well-trained. Outside the reception area are six spacious free-standing sparkling clean stone and thatch suites. Each suite is equipped with amazing amenities, uniquely decorated with thoughtful touches each with its own private patio, overlooking the tranquil bushveld landscape. The highlight of this lodge is certainly the resident game ranger, Ella. She loves to share her knowledge of the local animals with you - whether she takes you out on a game drive or joins you at the lodge's look-out deck by the watering hole. Nkala Lodge has access to both the Black Rhino Game Reserve and Pilanesberg National Park. A unique stay in the Pilanesberg not to be missed!

A bush experience without comparison- the staff are efficient yet unobtrusive, Golden’s cooking is exceptional, Ella’s guiding outstanding. Each room is private with attention to detail at every turn. 10 Star service and Lodge yet you’re made to feel like family.
