We stayed at Nungumbane Lodge for 3 nights and had a wonderful time there. Food was great and we especially enjoyed our gamedrives with Josphat and his stories and facts about the animals we saw. It was amazing to see a cheetah being chased by baboons and we were glad Josphat turned out to be an elephant whisperer when two...

So we arrive at Welgevonden and within 20 minutes we witness what many only get to see on David Attenborough docos. Our amazing guide Josefat spots a cheetah mother and her two cubs. We follow them a short distance and then we notice the mother eyeing a group of unsuspecting impalas. She calls quietly to her cubs who instinctively know...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Nungubane Game Lodge in March 2016. It is an amazing place - the staff are so welcoming and friendly, and the facilities are beautiful. We saw so much on our game drive, and it is a much more intimate setting than at the larger parks. Our guide Josephat was extremely knowledgeable...

Thank you for making our stay memorable. Josephat knew exactly where to take us on our drives what a living GPS and Livingstone food was out of this world. Such a great Chef. Cannot stop thinking about the Boma Supper on our last night. Would love to bring my husband along next time.

We met, hung and got to know the lions belonging to the Western Pride and that wasn't even the highlight of the trip... the highlight was the beauty of every moment, from the fun game drives, getting...

We can't say enough about our fantastic stay at Nungubane! Fantastic rooms, great staff, delicious food.... And incredible game drives! I looked into all of the Welgevonden lodges prior to booking at Nungubane. The decision was made due to Elize's fantastic customer service - quick and friendly responses to all my inquiries made me feel so comfortable about Nungubane. We...

I hope some day I can return with family and have them experience this magical setting. Josphat was an outstanding guide and diligent tracker, trying to find the Big 5 and as many other animals as he could get us to. The food was perfect and there was lots of it. The lodge was comfortable and welcoming. The huts had...

We spent 3 nights at Nungubane. The first night was special; they had arranged an outdoor dinner and a camp fire and we slept in the open, under the stars, in a guarded camp. We saw lots of animals, but the leopards were shy, unfortunately. Excellent food and good game drives. The bungalows were very nice with the outdoor shower...
