My wife and myself spent 2 nights at Nungubane lodge. This was truly a unique experience. The manager Chris and our guide Anushka made us feel very special and went the extra mile to help make our experience unforgettable. The staff were all super friendly and helpful. Also a special thanks to Lilly the chef and Ann, they made sure we were spoiled and fed. The food was also superb. The game drives with Anushka were exciting and we had very nice sightings. All in all it was a memorable experience, we made new friends and will not hesitate to recommend Nungubane lodge to anyone contemplating a visit to Welgevonden.
We have just returned from Nungubane Lodge. This lodge is run by the most fantastic couple....Hein and Nikki are so hospitable and nothing is too much for them to handle...including a massive storm! The attention to detail is insurmountable. The rooms are spotless and the bed is very comfortable. Delicious home cooked meals. Informative game drives and an exquisite setting make Nungubane Lodge an excellent choice for a weekend in Welgevonden....you will find it hard to find something to fault. Thank you for a very happy experience.
Nungubane is a small lodge that is professional, but friendly and relaxed at the same time. The rooms were lovely and cool with the fluffiest towels and the nougat with turn down service was a special touch. The meals were delicious and there was certainly no shortage of food, even with a hungry teenager. Our compliments to the chef Meriam and her team. The lodge has a hide, a sala for relaxing with a book and a very inviting swimming pool area. The host, Nicky, looked after us from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. Our game ranger Hein, was extremely knowledgable and an excellent driver and is a huge asset to the lodge. The whole team made our stay extremely enjoyable and relaxing and we would not hesitate to recommend this lodge to future travellers.
We were 3 couples and spent 3 spectacular nights at the lodge. From our arrival to our departure there was not a moment we didn't feel like the whole lodge revolved around us. The service was exceptional as was the food. Our taste buds were spoilt by Miriam and her very competent kitchen team including a starry "braai" in the Boma. We had Anuschka as our guide and she VERY knowledgeable and friendly with a decent dose of humor. The only sad part was our departure. To Chris and his team, we hope to see you again soon!!
We had an amazing experience at Nungubane Lodge. The lodge is small and intimate and at a great location in Welgevonden Reserve. Annouchka was our guide and it was one of the best guides we have experienced at any game reserve. Her knowledge is unparalleled and she went out of her way to take us on a different game drive route every day. We were spoilt with amazing game sightings, most of them close to our vehicle. The Welgevonden Reserve is also extremely beautiful with all the game in prime condition and not scared of game drive vehicles. The reserve takes the management of the game and environment very seriously. All the Nungubane staff were so friendly and no special request went unanswered. They went out of their way to make our stay special. The lodge experience is top…
