Our stay at Nungubane couldn't have been more perfect. Staff were warm and welcoming. rooms were lovely, and the food delicious (the chef even went above and beyond for a vegan member of our party!). And our guide Josphat was amazing. Full of fun facts and knowledge of the bush, a genuine passion for the subject and a joy to...

Excellent game lodge! We saw lots of animals, only a few jeeps are at the same spot. Very nice game drive, but also great view from the lodge itself, so even during breakfast or lunch there is a lot to see. Very friendly people that help you with everything. Luxurious lodges, great experience!

This was our first safari experience. We recently stayed for a week and had the best time. The staff were outstanding at every turn and we felt as though we were welcomed into their Nungubane family. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them, without exception. The food was delicious and the accommodation was secluded, spacious, very clean and well...

This is a small quiet lodge in the Welgevonden game reserve; but, great for a peaceful getaway, and not too far from Johannesburg. The game rangers are wonderfully knowledgeable and open to many questions. Viewing of smaller game is excellent. We were lucky enough to see a cheetah on the hunt... The staff are friendly, accommodating, and give you just...

Convenient and comfortable getaway. Close to JHB (3hr drive). Staff was great, Skye the ranger and manager was excellent at hosting with great knowledge of the reserve. The only thing better than Livingstone the chef's food was his great character.

We took our son and his new wife to Nungabane for 2 nights. It was her first visit to SA and her first experience of the bush, wildlife and game drives. We all had a wonderful time, the lodge is small, the rooms are beautiful and pretty private from one another. The staff were incredibly friendly and Livingstone and Anna...
