Some girlfriends and I decided on Nungubane for a Bush break! And we really weren’t disappointed. From the moment we arrived with all the staff waiting for us, it was just superb. Food delicious and ably provided by chef Lizzy. Ann who took such good care of us. Then probably the best field guide ever , Annoushka, we adore you! Keagan who had a baptism of fire with us, well done! And to Chris, a truly gracious human being. We will be back And next time, we will bring our better halves!

Chris, Annouchka and lodge staff proved attentive and competent hosts. Meals and game viewing happened like clockwork. Welgevonden Game Reserve is perhaps a lessor known gem, but we'll worth a visit. We were fortunate to see the big five on our Sunday morning game drive, which was very special. Overall a memorable stay and sure to return.

Magnificent find!!

Our family (3 couples) spent the weekend here for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday and we honestly cannot fault anything! The rooms are cozy and comfortable, with outdoor showers, magnificent views from the bath and bed, open balcony to have a mid-morning coffee or late-afternoon sundowner. The support staff and chef are so helpful and the food is second to none, including a spectacular birthday cake surprise!!

Chris and Annouchka are impeccable hosts with a clear passion for what they do! Chris is an awesome drinking partner and barman, and Annouchka's knowledge of the bush and surrounding area resulted in some incredible sightings, including an adrenaline-pumping run-in with a beautiful spotted bush snake on our drive-in.

Thank you team, looking forward to visiting again soon!

Room tip: Rooms 2 and 5 furthest away from main lodge if you enjoy a nice walk to your room after dark to see some nocturnal creatures!

My husband and I spent last weekend at Nungubane Lodge and can’t fault a thing. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, the main lodge, pool area and snug are just fantastic and the views over the reserve outstanding. Annie, Lizzie and the staff were so attentive and Lizzie is a great chef, the food was delicious. Annouchka is a wonderful guide and our game drives were most enjoyable and Manager Chris is efficient, knowledgable and a really down to earth person. On the whole a great team in a great location. We were fortunate enough to be with a lovely group of guests and had a fantastic time. Thank you Nungubane team.

Nungubane lodge ticked every single box!

We stayed at the lodge over the Easter weekend (4 nights) and from the hospitality, the incredible food selection, the game drives and the beautiful atmosphere that was created, we give them 5 stars +.
The rooms are big and well equipped with everything that you need with a king size bed to rest on every night.

The food is at least a two-course meal for breakfast and lunch and dinner with a three-course meal. There was a variety of dishes at every meal which suited everyone’s palette (even for the fussy eaters, they were satisfied).

Whilst in our quiet time, we lazed around by the beautiful pool side with some drinks which the bar was well stocked with.

Annouchka kept us well entertained and informed on our game drives. With her vast knowledge of the animals, the terrain and plants, we felt that we really had one of the BEST rangers that we have ever experienced. She made our trip so worthwhile by getting the best views of lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and more.

We even had a romantic setup dinner under the stars - which just made our weekend celebration that more special!

The way the lodge is managed by Chris and his staff is such a treat and we left making not only memories but great friendships too!

Thank you to the great team at Nungubane lodge, we hope to visit soon enough and book out the whole lodge with the family :)
