We had the pleasure of visiting Nedile Lodge last week, as a family of 3 adults. The booking process was easy and handled in an efficient way by Rina. From the moment we were met by John, Dominique and the staff to the moment we left the reserve, we were treated with so much love and respect. The game drives and walks were super exciting, we were never disappointed, because John made sure there was always something amazing to show us. He is a very knowledgeable guide and has a real passion for what he does. The food and presentation thereof was out of this world !! Rooms were very clean and bath amenities were of the very best quality, also white fluffy towels to wrap yourself in after a long day and super comfy beds. The views from the rooms and main lodge were incredible. But what made our stay fabulous was most definitely the staff. Thank you for making each day one to remember, the little spoils and the way you took care of us. YOU, the staff of Nedile, that is who Nedile is. Keep it up, this was our second visit, and we will be most definitely be back for more.

Nedile is located in the most big game rich park we have ever had the priviledge to visit and the game drives are fabulous with such a pleasant and knowledgeable guide. The staff at the lodge were welcoming and eager to spoil us, the accomodation is second to none with privacy and unspoilt views making it feel as if you have melted into the bushveld and can soak in the calm, relaxing and timelessness of this beautiful wilderness. Thank you for our amazing stay.

I don't really know where to begin. My girlfriend and I had 4 nights here and our only regret was not having more time! The lodge itself is in a fantastic location (an easy drive up from Johannesburg if you fly into there) with amazing views! There's a pool for relaxing between game drives (although a herd of elephants commandeered this on our final day!!), a nice little bar, TV room and a gym. Our room had a similarly great view, complete with an outdoor shower! The service in the lodge was among the best I've had anywhere. Marne, Jonathan and the other staff couldn't do enough for us, from welcoming us off the drives with wet towels, bringing us a steady supply of G&Ts by the pool and just generally making sure we had everything we needed. Obviously the game drives are what we were there for, and Barend, our guide, did not let us down! Barend was great, hugely knowledgeable about all aspects of the park and its wildlife, and really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time (including a much appreciated G&T sundowner at the end of the afternoon drives). He also cooks a mean lamb chop if you're lucky enough to be there when they do a Braai (good luck getting the recipe off him though!!) Speaking of food, the meals served to us at the lodge were excellent, as good as you'd get in any nice restaurant back home! All in all I'd highly recommend Nedile, the service really did make it so special for us so a big thank you to all the staff!
