It was our 1st trip to Nungubane and wow what a wonderful weekend it was. The lodge is beautifully positioned with an amazing view. The accommodation was beautiful and private. The beds very comfortable and the fire place was lovely. The food was absolutely delicious and offered a great variety of beautifully prepared food. The staff were warm and welcoming and made us feel very special. Our guide was Anushka and she was super lovely. Friendly, informative and she has a wonderful sense of humour. She is takes pride in making sure her guests are happy and is very accommodating with personal needs and requests. We loved every minute and would love to return.

Room tip: All rooms are lovely and have a great view into the bush.

I stayed at Nungubane for 4 days in May, What a wonderful place. Very intimate with only a few rooms, which allowed for great interactions with both the staff and other guests. Cosy little bar, great food and fantastic guides for the game drives. The rooms were beautiful, spotlessly clean and well appointed and the whole lodge was well managed and friendly. The game and birdlife in the reserve is of a high standard, I was lucky enough to see a great variety, including the elusive Aardwolf! A special thanks to Peter, Keegan and Bertud for making it such a memorable experience. I shall return!

I have recently returned from a week at Nungabane Game Lodge spent with friends from France.
I cannot imagine that our week could be bettered. Great comfort in the middle of nowhere. The lodge staff and guides are charming, helpful and highly competent. The cuisine was excellent with a choice of enticing main courses every day.
The wildlife we saw was breathtaking. We had the extraordinary experience of being surrounded by a herd of 30 or more elephants twice, once in daylight and the other after dark. Thanks to our guide what could have been a frightening experience was not.
My main interest is in the birdlife and I was very spoilt. We spotted over 70 different species ranging from three varieties of both bee eaters and kingfishers to various raptors including a very fine spotted eagle owl sitting on a branch in the failing evening light.
I hope Nungabane Game Lodge continues to thrive. It certainly deserves to.

A safari experience has always been something I've dreamed of doing, and safe to say that Nungubane exceeded all of my expectations and more. My fiancé and I had an absolutely incredible week away in the bush and for that we have Nungubane Game Lodge to thank.

The staff are so friendly and attentive, by the end of our stay they felt like family. Miriam and Lizzie's cooking was second to none, with various options each day to choose from. Not to mention the quality, presentation and attention to detail is of a particularly high standard.

The facilities are exceptional! Our room was cleaned each day, beds made in the morning and turned down in the evening which was a lovely touch after coming back from the game drives. The pool added the perfect opportunity to cool down throughout the day as we spent time relaxing on the sun loungers. The main deck and lookout points around the lodge were perfect for catching a glimpse of elephants, zebras and giraffes as they moved through the bush or drank from the watering hole.

Throughout our stay we were taken care of by the manager Chris, and two wonderful rangers, Keegan and Anoushka. Thank you so much for making our game drives unforgettable and unique. Keegan and Anoushka have incredible knowledge of the bush and every day felt like a new adventure. We were able to see some fantastic sightings and encounters with wildlife that will stay with us forever and be talked about with friends and family for years to come.

I would confidently recommend Nungubane to anyone and everyone. The value for money is exceptional and we will definitely be back again hopefully very soon.

Thank you again to the team at Nungubane for a wonderful stay!

Visiting Nungabane lodge was so incredibly special, I don't know where to begin. The whole experience from start to finish was just amazing. The lodge itself is in the most beautiful setting with views for miles over the bush. Each room felt very private and secluded, out in the wilderness with nothing around and the pool area was the perfect place to relax between game drives.

The staff were so amazingly friendly, warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone always had a smile on their face. The "family" that has been created within the lodge really shines through every element, creating a truly unique experience. The food was absolutely delicious, we had such a great variety of meals, with options to choose from every day. Coming back to reality and not getting to choose between specials of the day has been a real shock to the system!

The game drives were really wonderful. We had some very memorable and special sightings of so many different animals. Both Keegan and Annushka were so incredibly knowledgable about the wildlife, I learnt so much and with their understanding of the animals we were able to position ourselves in places allowing us the best view points, as the animals went about their daily business.

I also had a massage with Elisa, which was amazing, so relaxing and a lovely treat, I would highly recommend.

Overall we had a totally unforgettable experience, surrounded by the most warm South African hospitality and I already can't wait to go back again ASAP!!!

Room tip: All rooms are secluded and very similar in design. 1 and 5 are furthest from the main lodge.
