23 km east of Ladysmith in the extraordinarily beautiful and geographically diverse KwaZulu-Natal, lies Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve, home to elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino. As well as over 30 other animal species. It is also rich in birdlife and indigenous flora. Often described as 'heaven on earth', the Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve is also home to Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge. At Nambiti Hills Private Lodge, we believe in taking you 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. Our extremely knowledgeable senior guide and tracker will plan a personal safari that takes into account your particular interests and requirements. You can explore the reserve by 4x4, on foot or via helicopter. Or all three, if you so choose. The reserve has its own airfield and helipad. 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 San paintings on their rock faces. If you're interested in history, hiking and African culture, you will gain a great deal from a specially arranged personal tour of the area. Or you may decide that there is no richer pursuit than rest, and you will certainly get the best of that at Nambiti Hills.


Eight luxury suites grace the land at Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge, each one secluded to offer you the utmost privacy, a sanctuary in the wild African landscape. There is a private verandah that overlooks the game reserve and offers the ideal setting for intimate dinners. And an interior that is strongly influenced by the colours, patterns and textures of the wilderness in its well-considered combination of designs, materials and furnishings.

Even the en suite bathroom with its spacious shower and extra large stone baths connects you with the beautiful exterior, coaxing you to soak while gazing into the savannah beyond.


The honeymoon suite is spacious and grand, suspended from the hillside and offering the most spectacular views. On request special delicacies and treats can be prepared in our kitchen and brought to your suite.


Nambiti Hills guides and expert animal trackers will take you through the rugged and pristine terrain of the Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve in search of some of the most splendid animals in Africa.
