We had an unforgettable 2 days at the lodge with family and received the warmest hospitality from the lodge team. Nothing was too much trouble and the boma birthday dinner and singing was fabulous ! Keegan's knowledge is incredible and he made the bush experience unforgettable for young and old alike. Thank you Kyra, Keegan, Marcel and the entire team ! Brilliant memories are going back to Canada !

Some girlfriends and I decided on Nungubane for a Bush break! And we really weren’t disappointed. From the moment we arrived with all the staff waiting for us, it was just superb. Food delicious and ably provided by chef Lizzy. Ann who took such good care of us. Then probably the best field guide ever , Annoushka, we adore you! Keagan who had a baptism of fire with us, well done! And to Chris, a truly gracious human being. We will be back 💕And next time, we will bring our better halves!

We had an amazing time here at Nungubane lodge. Great location for game viewing in the reserve. Game rangers were very insightful and knowledgable. Learnt a lot of interesting facts and felt very well looked after. Saw exciting viewings of lions and elephants. Fantastic staff members who were all very friendly, helpful and look after their guests well. Wonderful beds that sleep comfortably and cozy towels. Lovely prepared food with good portions and tasty desserts. Good value for money. Thank you for the wonderful experience Nungubane.

The staff at Nungubane were very warm and welcoming.and always attentive. The food was amazing. The rooms are spacious and have wonderful views. The reserve is a gem and the ranger very knowledgeable. I was particularly impressed by her emphasis on ethical practices and conservation. The game drives weren’t rushed.
Small but excellent wine list.
