Big 5 Feeling
Often described as heaven on earth, the Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve lies 23 km east of Ladysmith in the extraordinarily beautiful and geographically diverse South African province KwaZulu-Nata. This reserve is rich in birdlife and indigenous flora and home to elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino as well as over 30 other animal species. At Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge, you will be taken on a holistic safari, covering all spheres of the eco-system, from the smallest insects and different grasses to the magnificence of Africa’s best known beasts, in as much detail as you desire. The extremely knowledgeable senior guides and trackers will plan a personal safari that takes into account your interests, wishes and requirements.
You can explore the reserve by 4×4, on foot or via helicopter – or all three, if you choose. Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve is close to the famous battlefields of the Anglo-Boer War and various other historic sites. It is also not far from the Drakensberg, a spectacular range of mountains with dramatic waterfalls, rivers, streams and caves that feature ancient paintings on their rock faces. A haven of sophistication, this luxurious lodge offers a unique combination of wide open spaces and discreet intimate places. Its lofty glass-enclosed dining and lounge areas provide panoramic views of rolling hills and savannah by day, and thousands of stars by night. A wide veranda with its neighbouring bar spills out onto a waterfall that splashes into a rock pool where you can float on cushions whilst sipping cocktails. And if you are looking for uninterrupted contemplation, you can escape to the discreet enclaves leading off the bedroom suites.
