This was a very laid-back, quiet place with only a few guests; ideal for the end of our three-week journey in southern Africa. The staff were very friendly and knowledgable, the food very good, the rooms wonderful and the game drives were quite good. We even spotted a aardwolf and some bush pigs which are apparently quite rare in this...

Too many highlights to list all of them but truly a magical place with fantastic staff to make you feel in pure bliss including fantastic rooms and main lodge (and the best pool as we had great weather) as well as gourmet dining every meal!

I've been on quite a few safaris in Southern Africa and this was undoubtedly the most memorable. Nungubane is the most beautiful lodge in the heart of the Welgevonden Private Reserve with stunning views from the main house and also from each of the private rooms. Delicious food cooked by the resident chef Livingstone and the staff are all wonderfully...

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this wonderful game reserve. The location is amazing! Our room was so nice! It was such a familiar atmosphere, so we felt very well. The food was excellent. And the game drives were exciting. Thanks to F.J. and the whole crew, especially Ann. We would come again.

Where do I start? Our group spent 3 nights and 6 game drives at this amazing facility! We had the pleasure of eating GOURMET meals prepared by two different chefs. I had to keep stressing smaller portions because they feed you so much and sooooo delicious! Catered to any special requests we had. Thanks Livingstone and Miriam for feeding us...

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.
