Camp Ndlovu - A piece of Heaven!!!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Mar 2022
What an amazing experience!!!
When I say everything was perfect, I mean everything was perfect cannot fault a thing. The chef is first class and the food, OMW delicious!!!. The game drives were straight out of a magazine :) . This lodge goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable at all times. Little touches like running a bubble bath every evening when you get back from your game drive was just the best experience ever!!! A BIG Thank You to Sanet, April and ther team, what a great weekend. Will go back in a heart beat.

Camp Ndlovu situated approximately one and half hours ride from the Main Gate in Welgevonden Game Reserve. We had an excellent experience, thoroughly enjoyed our visit. First impression, Friendliness, cleanliness and thoroughly professional. The General Manager Sanet is the star of the show, keeps everything running on oiled wheels. The staff were wonderful, the food was fantastic. we had a very good ranger, April, who was extremely knowledgeable about the fauna and flora! Game drives were absolutely sublime. Definitely will have a return visit!

Our stay at Ndlovu was most amazing. From the minute we arrived to when we left.
Staff treated us like royalty and went beyond to make sure any requirement we had was met.

Sanet is an amazing host, she is in control of all areas and makes sure that your stay is special.

We have stayed in many other lodges in Welgevoden over the years but have never experienced such perfection.

The location of the lodge is perfect with game continually coming to drink water in the stream in front of the lodge.
The room we had was very clean and extremely private. The plunge pool was a delight in the hot weather we had. The private deck area makes for perfect relaxing and having time out.

The food is made with utmost care and perfection. The chef is exceptional and comes to talk to you after every meal.
Every meal was superb. As previously mentioned we have stayed at other top-rated lodges in the Welgevoden. Ndlovu is certainly the best of them all as we could find no fault. Top marks for an awesome weekend.

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!!

Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Friendly and attentive. Very relaxing with brilliant game drives where we saw the big inside of 2 days. The accommodation has everything you need and is at a high standard. Loved the private patio with fireplace, pool and the option of an outdoor shower and bath.
This is a top drawer venue where they fall over themselves to answer questions and help.
Food is really great and diverse and variety to cover all tastes.
Our guide, April was really knowledgeable and just had a fantastic demeanor about him, maybe it is because he was born and raised in the area.
Highly highly recommended
