10/10 Exceptional

Nkomazi is such a beautiful and unique place with luxury beds and amenities to relax. We got into the rhythm of waking up early for a drive, relaxing and napping during the day, then going back out for the evening drive. The staff was very welcoming and always there to greet you with a hot towel and juice or a drink when returning to the camp. Our ranger was very knowledgeable and fun to go out with each day. You have the same guide for your entire stay so each drive builds upon the last and we got to see and learn so much about the wildlife at the reserve. The place is so beautiful, it is so much more than just ticking off the “big five” from your list. Remember it is not a zoo, so don’t go expecting to be presented with each animal quickly. You take your time and look for animals in a much more natural environment and feel the anticipation and luck of when you find something. During our five night stay we viewed cheetahs, a leopard, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostrich, warthogs, waterbuck, impala, and so much more! We look forward to making a return visit in the future!

Service is very, very good. The facility and the amenities are all well thought out. There are not as many animals in the reserve as there are in a national park, but we were lucky and saw many, many animals. It is possible, however, to go days here without seeing lions or elephants.

Alleen de rit vanaf de gate naar de lodge is al een ervaring. Nkomazi is de enige lodge op de 15000 hectare grond en de luxe tenten liggen aan een mooie rivier. Service is uitstekend, van ontbijt tot diner en de tenten beschikken over alle comfort. Gamedrives van 3u in de late middag en de vroege ochtend. Kortom: geweldig!

Luxurious "glamping" on a beautiful reserve
Lovely property with very comfortable luxury tents. The staff could not have done a better job making us feel at home and helping us experience the wildlife and gorgeous terrain. Food was delicious and very nicely presented. The game drives were a delight-something different at every turn and the knowledge and enthusiasm of the guides was inspiring. Thanks to all for making our stay so very special.
