Our best game experience ever. We saw lions mating and we had a heard of elephants pass our vehicle at a distance of about three meters. We saw more in three days than we had ever seen before and a lot was at closer range than we previously experienced. Our ranger FJ was often the first to find many of...

Arrived in Cape Town and we are reflecting on out 3 nights, 5 game drives at Nungabane lodge. From the moment FJ met us at the west gate, the experience was memorable and his welcome and demeanour set the tone for the rest of our stay. Hats off to the gentle giant (FJ) who can even make an 0530 wake-up...

Nungubane is a fabulous game lodge in an excellent game reserve. Jonathan and Karen, our guide and hosts, are exceptional. We had an amazing holiday. 5*+ service and an experience never to be forgotten. Forget Kruger, Nungubane is the best

Our guide FJ was excellent - well informed and honest with his information. Karen, Jonathan and the staff were very hospitable and also good company. Our best visit to Welgevonden in...

Group of 10 (exclusive use of the lodge for 4 days) supplied our dietary requirements as requested - 2 Pesco-Vegetarians, the rest a mix of low carb and low salt. Vegetarian options were boring, except for one amazing aubergine starter. It was so good that I requested more of that for my evening meal. The fish option for the Pesco-Vegetarians,...

Perfect visit to Nungubane. Very professionally managed. Luxurious rooms and a beautiful lodge, excellent staff and delicious cuisine. Wonderful game drives, including an up-close with a stunning male lion after a very recent kill. Stunning setting. Easily accessible from Jo'burg. Highly recommended.

Absolute best place to take a break !! Great park and game, kindest staff ever, excellent food and perfect terrace/pool for sundowners, not to forget the in-camp hide by the waterhole to spot animals during breaks. Highly recommended to anyone

Our stay at Nungubane couldn't have been more perfect. Staff were warm and welcoming. rooms were lovely, and the food delicious (the chef even went above and beyond for a vegan member of our party!). And our guide Josphat was amazing. Full of fun facts and knowledge of the bush, a genuine passion for the subject and a joy to...
