Wonderful Birthday Getaway

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Aug 2021
Everything about Nungubane Game Lodge deserves 5 stars. Their service is phenomenal from beginning to end. The staff are incredibly friendly and really do make you feel like you are at home from the moment you arrive to the moment that you leave. They pay attention to all the small details and it definitely goes a long way. Our game guide, Keegan, was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable and really went out of his way to make our game drives as incredible as what they could be. The food was super delicious and there is not one dish or snacks that did not leave us wanting more. I would highly recommend Nunugubane Game Lodge to anyone who wants to be at home away from home as well as living in a lodge that makes you feel like you are in the bush with the bush themed interior decorating as well as the thatch and vast amount of wood that makes up the lodge. I would definitely be back in a heart beat. Thank you Nungubane for the wonderful experience and for really going out of your way to make my birthday so very special.

A truly memorable birthday experience. From wonderful food, remarkable game experiences and minute attention to detail, we were made to feel very special by incredible staff. Accommodation is beautiful with wonderful bush views from the main lodge and intimate chalets. Loved every minute and can't wait to visit again.

We recently spent an incredible girls weekend at Nungubane!
Annoushka our very knowledgeable guide, greeted us with GnT's as we arrived... and from there if you can believe it, things even got better.
Professional hosting from all staff, including Chris our fabulous manager who welcomed us back from our evening game drive with drums.
The food was sublime and rooms very comfy, especially red wine around the fire place in the evenings.
WE WILL BE BACK!
