An amazing luxury lodge

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 07 Sept 2019
Camp Ndlovu is a 10 person luxury lodge in Welgevonden Game Reserve. My family and I have just spent 5 nights and had the most amazing time. We were 10 people - 4 adults and 6 children so we had the lodge exclusively. Sanat and her team were amazing, nothing was too much to ask. The service was attentive and the food was fantastic.
The lodge is beautiful and our rooms were fantastic with our own swimming pool which over looked a watering hole. One day the kids were playing in the pool and the elephants came close by.
Melvin was our wonderful ranger, he has been working at Welgevonden Game Reserve for over 27 years. He knows the reserve like the back of his hand - he knows everything about every single animal, he can spot an animal miles away and which animals footprints are in the sand plus how fresh their tracks. He was very patient with the children and answered all their questions.
This was my children's first safari holiday, they got to see the Big 5 and more. Welgevonden is a great reserve offering different terrains and experiences. Its Malaria free and a 3 hours drive from Jo'burg.
Thank you Camp Ndlovu for a truly wonderful holiday.
Date of stay: September 2019
Room Tip: Try to take the property exclusively as its well worth it!

Our family of 4 (boys 13 and 16) had such a wonderful time at Camp Ndlovu. The accommodations were spectacular and Sanet’s attention to detail was second to none. Malvin our guide was so knowledgeable and clearly loved his job. It was quite clear that his love of the land and the animals ran very deep. The meals were delicious and presented beautifully. We saw so many animals and enjoyed the herd of elephants that came into camp one night. The lodge staff were lovely and attentive and the welcome song was very special. I would absolutely recommend this camp to anyone and everyone. I would love to return one day.

I had a wonderful stay in Camp Ndlovu. The camp is nicely located in a valley and fits nicely in its surroundings. The details of the interior is simply amazing. The standard is very high and everything is very clean. Staff is super friendly and the food very delicious.

Guide Malvin is just excellent. He knows every tree and rock in the reserve and loves sharing his knowledge. He works hard to give you the best possible experience and does not mind going the extra mile. For example extending the game drives to see what you came for. I had some amazing game drives and I can highly recommend that place.

Everything about Camp Ndlovu is 5 star!
Sanet and her team make sure that you every need is catered to. The food is divine, the staff are friendly, the accommodation was amazing and there is such attention to detail that you will be left speechless. Bornwell is a fantastic guide and he made sure that we saw all the game we wanted to. We will definitely return and recommend this lodge. This is the best lodge we have visited in South Africa.

Room tip: Unit number 1 has breathtaking views and is quiet. The private pool area means you never want to leave
