The hospitality and the attention to detail was great. The food was delicious and the staff was very knowledgeable and personable. Our safari time was breath taking, such great views and we got to see all of the animals that we wanted to see. It's a great place to getaway. I look forward to going again.

We stayed three nights in this beautiful tented camp and enjoyed the hospitality of the staff as much as the safari experience. Very warm and welcoming employees, wonderful luxurious tents (we didn't want to leave again), fantastic food but most of all, great guides that took us through our morning and afternoon game drives. It was impressive to see such...

Recently stayed at Nkomazi Reserve, and it surpassed all expectations. From the moment we arrived, we could tell how much all the guides truly care about the animals. On the transfer from the entrance of the reserve to the lodge area, the guide drove on the side of the road at one point so that he would not crush a...

It was huge with a separate 'sitting room' tent raised up on decking with its own private plunge pool. The deck was surrounded by woodland with a beautiful elevated view. The bed was so comfortable & the rooms...

We were lucky enough to be given the Royal Suite but there were a few problems with electricity and water so we didn't get to enjoy the wonderful amenities of the separate lounge tent but the outside bath and separate outside shower were also featured when we moved the next day to tent six which also featured its own outside...

I recently visited Nkozami Reserve in South Africa. It was a fabulous experience. Our guide, Celebrate did a phenomenal job of getting us up close to all the beautiful animals. The staff at the reserve was friendly and welcoming as well as attentive. The facility is extremely nice. I would recommend Nkomazi without hesitation!

The best holiday we have ever had. Two nights at Nkomazi Komati tented camp restores your soul. The staff are amazing, the game drives so informative and the food delicious. Can't wait to return - definitely a place to visit at least once a year.
