Nambiti Private Reserve
Aptly referred to as the “treasure of KwaZulu Natal”, Nambiti Private Game Reserve is one of the true gems of South Africa. As they say, it’s all about location, location, location. Needless to say, the malaria free Nambiti Private Game Reserve boasts a prime location for many reasons, not least of all the driving distance from Johannesburg, a 3.5 hour drive, and Durban, only 2.5 hours away. It is also in close proximity to one of KwaZulu Natal’s major tourist attractions, the battlefields, with 82 battlefields, museums, old fortifications and places of remembrance.
To top it all, the infamous Drakensburg mountain range is only 30 minutes away, with its extraordinary beauty and numerous activities. But I digress, the real reason one visits this exclusive private game reserve is for the world class lodges and prime game viewing, including the big five and over 40 other species such as hippo, cheetah, zebra, impala and a host of other plains game.
The incredible biodiversity consisting of grasslands, riverine bush, savannah and thornveld, is the perfect recipe for exceptional game viewing. Nine world class game lodges are spread over the 10 000 hectare game reserve, catering for families, small groups of friends, honeymooners, “bos beraads”, conferences, weddings, events and even team building. You just can’t go wrong.
Budget an issue? Not to worry, they’ve got that covered too. Being malaria free means you don’t have to worry about medication and Cheetah Ridge and Ndaka Safari Lodge are fenced, offering maximum protection for the little ones. So, whether you’re Johannesburg or Durban based, Nambiti Private Game Reserve is ideal for that midweek break or weekend away. Or you can take and extended holiday and visit all that the surrounding area has to offer. The possibilities are endless.
