Lodging is in 5 private chalets, each with large bath and beautiful deck. With only 10 guests possible, the feeling of being special is emphasized, with hot towels when returning from game drives, with wonderful meals and personalized attention. On the early morning and afternoon game drives Jacques found us lots of animals including some special time with a lioness...

Quaint private cottages with their own outdoor deck and outdoor shower with unparalleled privacy. The bedroom has a fireplace and wonderful character. Jacques led our game drives early morning for sunrise and every afternoon through sunset and into the evening. The landscape and wildlife are spectacular. The food was excellent. No bugs or malaria concerns. Bring binoculars and a good...

We booked at this private bush lodge on a last minute basis and were not disappointed. We got the excellent private bush treatment (as one expects in a private game lodge). The lodges are very private and one does not have to close curtains in order not to be seen by others. There are trees and bushes all around the...

What a week of luxury spent at Nungabane Game Lodge, sitting in the Welgevonden Reserve. We enjoyed 14 game drives with the deeply knowledgeable and passionate Jacques (and Nathan), who taught us so much about the African bush, as well as leading us to some once in a life-time sightings including four of the BIG FIVE and a lion on...

What an incredible stay at such a beautiful safari lodge. After an easy transfer from Johannesburg airport we arrived to the lodge and were greeted with welcome drinks, hot towels and a tour of the lodge. Our chalet felt so secluded as there is lots of foliage separating the chalets which means you feel like you are totally at one...

My Husband and I had the most fantastic two night stay at Nungubane. He had been here before with work colleagues and insisted that I must come back with him this time. We were thoroughly looked after by the team, not only on the game drives by the very knowledgable Nathan, but also by all the housekeeping and kitchen staff....

Arrived at Welgevonden Game Reserve where the Nungubane lodge is located. We were met by Nathan who is to be our game guide during our stay. The lodge is located about a half hour from the West Gate along a smooth dirt track and the Range Rover is quiet and comfortable. The lodge is very well-done and our room luxurious....

We spent a wonderful 3 nights here with family and friends. Everything exceeded our expectations including the game sightings. Jacques was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining on the game drives. The rooms were super comfy and the food was delicious. The staff were extremely helpful and all in all it was a wonderful experience. We would certainly return to Nungubane!
