Remarkable stay!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Jan 2021
Camp Ndlovu is the perfect place for families or for couples. The service is impeccable. The staff, game rangers, managers and chefs go out of their way to make sure that your stay exceeds expectations. No request is too big or too small! The chef catered to vegan needs (with great success!) as well as to meat eaters.
The rooms are luxurious! The views from the lodge are gorgeous (and it was a treat seeing the animals at the watering hole at the lodge) and of course the game drives were the highlight with our brilliant guide. Thank you for the lovely stay! COVID protocol was followed.

What a fantastic weekend. From arrival to departure everything was just perfect. Sanet and her team was just amazing. The food was fantastic. April and Johan was great hosts whilst out on the game drives. Can highly recommend a visit. Without doubt a place that will be visited again.

We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights.
Everything about this experience was perfect, I have done multiple safaris in South Africa, Tanzania and India. This was by far the best I have ever experienced.
This was my friends first experience and she was simply blown away. From the moment we arrived and saw a heard of elephants on the terrace to the moment we left it was absolutely perfect!
Sanet and everybody else who works at Camp Nudlovu from myself and Steph thank you for 4 perfect days!

Our 4 night stay was fantastic. The warm welcome from ranger Malvin at the Main Gate and the beating of tribal drums and team smiles at the lodge upon our arrival set the tone for special weekend ahead. Highlights were hot water bottles on early morning chilly game drives, a bubble bath awaiting your entry in the evenings, before a heavenly nights rest, private plunge pools, and deck to relax, outside bath and shower. The game experience was super, with Malvin's expertise we saw unbelievable big 5 sightings. The food was exceptional, fresh and beautifully presented and special diet requests were no problem at all. Sonette is the ultimate lodge host together with her team of happy people, they really made us feel like kings and queens. We'll be back for sure! This place is a top spot with all the treats you can think of.

Everything from start to finish was impressive. The setting is beautiful and the staff are friendly and helpful. We saw lots of animals on the game drives and our guide, Marvin was very knowledgeable. The lodge and the rooms are beautiful and you really feel immersed in nature. Thank you to the chef for all the delicious food. The entire experience has been very well though out with attention to detail which makes guests feel very well looked after. Thank you so much to the whole team for an amazing experience. I hope to be back soon.

The camp ndlovu experience was hands down the best holiday I have ever been on in my life. I can barley put into words how fantastic and amazing this place is.

Firstly the staff are an absolute credit to the establishment, I’ve never experienced such attentive and wonderful service as I did from the guys at camp ndlovu. David and Jack our hosts were brilliant for our whole stay and Marvin our tour guide was just incredible! His knowledge of the African bush and the animals was so insightful it made the trip even more special. Can’t thank those guys enough.

The food was also remarkable, the chefs would put on amazing spreads of food and the menu was to die for! You always were left satisfied and if anyone had special food requirements the guys were only to happy to carter for us, I ate like a king for the whole week!!

And finally the accommodation was stunning, it was set in the perfect location. From our room we had fantastic views of the African bush and it’s amazing wildlife and this was also replicated at the dinning/communal area. The room was beautifuly furnished and the facilities were so well equipped, I highly recommend the outdoor shower !

Thank you so much for making a truly unforgettable experience !
