About Springbok Lodge

The Springbok Lodge epitomises the perfect safari experience with beautifully appointed tented suites, service excellence, superb cuisine and prolific wildlife ensuring an unforgettable experience. Nestled in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal battlefields, the lodge offers guests a chance to unwind in a picture-perfect setting.

Well positioned on the main route between Johannesburg and Durban, Springbok Lodge is a four and a half hour drive from Johannesburg approximately 400 km and three and a half hours from the coastal city of Durban. The breathtaking mountains of the central Drakensberg lie a mere one and a half hours away. Bringing the lodge even closer is 1.2 km landing strip for light aircraft or helicopters.

Springbok Lodge is situated in the Nambiti Private Game Reserve, a conservancy offering 20000 acres of pristine, malaria-free bushveld. The reserve is home to the Big Five, as well as cheetah, hippo and over 30 species of plains game. Nature lovers will enjoy the area's biodiversity, with Thornveld and majestic Acacia trees complementing extensive grasslands which mirror the plains of Central Africa.

The abundant natural water system, with perennial rivers and the beautiful waterfall and cascades on the Sundays River, makes for a unique sanctuary, attracting several rare bird species and an enviable array of raptors and vultures. Feast your senses on the magnificent sights, sounds and smells of this untouched African bush. With every dawn, renew your bond with nature as you embark on a safari with your experienced and knowledgeable field guide.

Safari: We offer game drives of appoximately three hours long, depending on sightings and weather, as well as boma dinners and bush breakfasts (weather permitting) and fly fishing (seasonal).

Spa: We have 2 massage therapists who offer a variety of relaxing massage treatments, reflexology, manicures and pedicures in the privacy of your tent or, if the weather allows, out on your deck!

          We spent one night at Springbok Lodge and went on two game drives. The game sightings were very good and our guide knowledgeable. The tents are very comfortable, as is the lodge. Highly recommended, we wish we'd been able to stay another night.

          We stayed at Springbok Lodge in the Nambiti Reserve for 6 nights. The Lodge itself had an beautiful setting. The tents we very comfortable, not really tents more like a chalet with canvas walls. The staff were very friendly and rangers very knowledgeable. The reserve itself is in the early stages and is still settling down as they bring in more lions, cheetah and other animals. The views and surroundings are very good and even if its a slow day the views are enough to make you want to carry on. We had a very very good time and will be returning.

          Never had such excellent treatment as was given to us by the Lodge Management Bret and Wendy. Food was out of this world and must complement the chef Bongani.

          We had a lovely time at Springbok - made even better by the fact that it was out of season and we had the place pretty much to ourselves which was great. Geraldine was a good host and the food was very good. Vicky was an excellent ranger and the game drives were great. The tents were exceptionally clean with good facilities. Overall we had a fantastic stay at Springbok and all at a very reasonable price - we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend NAmbiti.
