Just four magnificently appointed chalets sleeping only eight people, right in the heart of Big Five country within the borders of the greater Kruger National Park!!!! Without a doubt, Naledi offers you the most personal, intimate experience anywhere In the region – and at a price often less than half of what you would expect to pay elsewhere! At Naledi we only ever have a maximum of eight guests on our game viewer, only eight relaxing on our beautiful swimming pool deck overlooking the river bed and our private waterhole where one can enjoy the daily parade of animals and birds coming to drink and feed in total peace and tranquility. Our lodge is our passion, showing people our private piece of wild Africa our greatest pleasure, and that means introducing you to the bush and all its creatures, from lions and elephants, to antelope and birds is something we always look forward to ! At Naledi you’ll find aircon throughout, delicious meals, elegant surroundings, a fabulously stocked bar, fun, relaxation and excitement in equal portions, but best of all, you’ll arrive as strangers, and leave as friends!!

We were in the leadwood suite together with our kids, beautiful suite with amazing terrasse and salon with all intimacy. With a water point just in front of our terrasse, we had twice the visit of an elephant a few meters away from us. Monkeys also came to visit every day. The staff is really excellent, very thoughtful as well as our ranger Oupa and tracker Excellent. We had excellent food in large quantity (too much for me, great for the big eaters). We saw all the animals we wanted to see in our morning and afternoon drives. Definitely recommend.

We were able to see the big 5 and then some! We had animals coming very close to the units we stayed in. Amazing experience and excellent food. Be sure and specific if you want the guides to join you for dinners - our group would have preferred dinners on our own.

The team of Naledi keeps on surprising us. We had the best game drives on 1 visit. 2 brother lions. 5 lionesses with 8 cubs. The big group of Elephants visiting the Naledi waterhole right in front of the lodge. Leopard in the tree. You name it, they will find it! And then the food, excellent as always!

We had a wonderful stay at the Naledi lodge. During our game drives with our fantastic guides Oupa and Excellent we could see the big 5 and many other animals really close. Also the food from Chef Dudu was an absolute highlight and every member of staff went out of their way to make our stay a remarkable experience! We would love to come back!

The team at Naledi went above and beyond to make our first Safari absolutely perfect. The entire staff was beyond friendly and accommodating, and our guide Oupa and tracker Excellent were fantastic. Because this lodge is quite small compared to some of the other larger lodges, everything was very personalized. We stayed in the Rockfig suite, which was lovely, with plenty of space for my husband and I! The lodge serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner which are curated by Chef Dudu - everything we ate was amazing!! Since we were there celebrating our honeymoon, they also set up the sweetest dinner in our room which was so nice! One thing to note is that the rooms do have quite a lot of bugs, but to be expected in the wild :) Overall, 10/10 - would highly recommend for your stay!!

We originally found Naledi whilst doing our research on line and decided that this was the place we wanted to go to, to experience our first safari. We therefore planned out entire South Africa trip around it and boy was it the best decision we ever made, save for inviting our grown up family along!! From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice. We stayed in Rockfig and Leadwood, which were beautifully decorated, immaturely clean and offered a window to the wildlife. Within moments of arriving a message from our daughter told us of a bull elephant bathing and drinking in the water hole they overlooked which was fabulous. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed 9 safaris with Oupa and Excellent. Two amazing guides- funny, intelligent, experienced trackers who could find anything from an elusive black rhino, sleeping in the undergrowth to a tiny chameleon in the treetops in the pitch black! Turning corners to scenes you’ve only seen on your TV, to a pride of lions walking past the jeep, rhinos wallowing in the river and a leopard in the tree with her kill and baby hyenas playing by their den says everything! The food at the lodge was fantastic too and the excitement continued every time in terms of where it’s served every day or night, but experiencing it round the fire pit whilst seeing the Milky Way and shooting stars is impressive! Finally we have to mention our wedding anniversary. Returning to candles, rose petals and a bath run for us was very special. However the surprises didn’t stop there with our evening meal planned at the girls lodge, with cake, champagne and singing and dancing from the whole team was beyond our dreams, not least because the whole event was supported by an elephant tromping round in the background. The entire team at Naledi deserve every accolades possible. They work tirelessly to make your experience something that dreams are made of and whilst it’s hard to shout out the front of house and guides, without mentioning everyone in the background- Tk, Lillian, Angel, Oupa and Excellence you are very special to us and we will remember you forever for the incredible experience you gifted us. We will be back and can’t wait to see the exciting things you have planned.
