    Our first visit to this lodge and wow! This is now my favourite game lodge. If you are looking for a romantic getaway or a place to have some peace and quite this is the place. The game viewing was also great!

    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.

    We spent a weekend at the lodge and had one of our best holidays ever. The service was brilliant, the food was good, the room was spectacular and the game viewing was superb with very well trained game rangers.

    On expedia it mentions this reserve is all inclusive but the only thing I see is free breakfast. what are typical charges for lunch and dinner on the property? I am looking to book for my honeymoon next Oct 2016. Is there a best time of year to come to spot animals such as elephants, giraffes and lions?

    Breakfast is included at about 9.30, after the game drive. At 3 there's a big afternoon tea with a lovely spread. Dinner at 7. Always snacks and free drinks on the drives. Food absolutely great!
