A very relaxing atmosphere with brilliant game drives where we saw the big 5 . The accommodation has everything you need and is super luxurious. Loved the private patio with fireplace, pool and the option of an outdoor shower and bath. Food is really great and diverse and variety to cover all tastes. Our guide, Steven was excellent and just had a fantastic demeanor about him.
Sanet and the rest of the staff were just phenomenal and no task was too big. I would highly recommend this place as an experience second to none!!

My 9 year old son would like to give Ndlovu a 5 star rating.

We had the most memorable, life changing experience there.

The suite we stayed in was absolutely wonderful. Fluffy towels, big comfy beds, outdoor shower (epic). Babbons in the trees to wake you up (still epic!).

The food cooked by Nicholas and Peter was divine and nothing was out of the question. All so fresh.

Lerato and George were the perfect hosts. Looking after the children and showing them all the animals we didn’t know were there.

And April our ranger guide was the most wonderful man. Such amazing knowledge and information on all the animals and plants and where to find them. Best tracker ever.

We loved our stay and want to return immediately.

Amazing place, service was 6 star, food was outstanding, rooms were fantastic. Highly recommended.
The staff went above and beyond our special requests.
The food quality was above or equal to any top restaurants in SA. The game viewing was great and the park is very well maintained.

Flawless! The facilities, staff and food were outstanding. The attention to detail is exceptional. Our ranger was skilled, experienced, knowledgable, and obliging. The manager was attentive and efficient. Camp Ndlovu is possibly the best game lodge I have visited.

This was our first trip to South Africa, and what an introduction to a country! There are seven staff, and each of them are friendly and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble, and there appears to be a genuine desire to ensure that everything is perfect. Much of this is thanks to Sanet, the manageress, who was a delight.
Our room was large, with a separate seating area. Indoor and outdoor bath and shower. Plunge pool with separate decking. Fully stocked complementary mini-bar and full tea and coffee making facilities.
The food was to the highest standard, and include an evening by an open fire called a Boma.
The game drives were led by Marvin, a knowledgeable and friendly guide, and through use of short-wave radios, we got see to all the expected big game. This private park asks that the guides stay on the tracks so don't expect to go parking right next to a lion eating a kill - the animals are given their respect.
We can't recommend this place highly enough. A triumph
