The Nambiti Reserve is a private Big Five bush retreat, boasting incredible biodiversity including Savannah, thornveld and tall acacia trees. Extensive grasslands mirror the plains of central Africa and the abundance of natural water, perennial rivers and the beautiful cascades of the Sundays River makes Nambiti a unique sanctuary for all forms of wildlife. We offer our guests a truly unique experience. Apart from the traditional, open-vehicle safari game drives where the big five and over thirty other species of game including cheetah and hippo can be seen, we can also pre-arrange Battlefield tours should you wish to incorporate it with your safari experience.
Our main area is imaginatively weaved and constructed in and amongst the indigenous forest with vast, expansive wraparound decks overlooking our waterhole and plains area, making it the perfect vantage point from which to view wildlife in their natural environment. Contemporary, simplistic decor, subtle earthy colors and cozy relaxation areas allow you to experience the African bush at its best. Glassed sliding doors, overhead fans and screeded floors ensure you stay cool in summer while large, beautifully constructed packed stone fire places in our lounge and dining room beckon you to absorb its inviting warmth in winter. Relax either in our lounge, separate bar, outdoor lounge or at the swimming pool which is also a popular drinking spot for the elephants - a fine line between luxury and the reality of the African wild.
All five of our suites are a short walk to the main area, completely secluded and luxuriously appointed, designed and decorated with the utmost care and detail to impress and surpass the expectations of even the most discerning guest. Enjoy panoramic views from your private deck, while having an indulgent soak in your freestanding tub or even from your indoor or outdoor showers. Each suite is equipped with romantic mosquito nets, underfloor heating, overhead fans, tea/coffee stations, safes and mini bars. Our family suite is separated by a solid, packed stone wall and leads to two totally separate and private rooms, equipped as the other three suites with the exception of outdoor showers. Our chefs will take you on a taste sensation with healthy, scrumptious meals, prepared with the freshest ingredients and is reflective of good Pan African cuisine. Look forward to hearty breakfasts on your return from early morning game drive, light lunches or high teas depending on the season and fabulous three course dinners after your evening game drive. Meals are informal and served either outdoors, in our dining room or under African skies in our outdoor boma around a roaring central fire-pit.
