The Springbok Lodge epitomises the perfect safari experience with 21 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.

          Perfect location for a travel between Joburg and Durban, tents are nice and the food was great.Unfortunately the staff, specifically the rangers haven't got no passion for there job ....... they haven't understood that to be at the Springbok lodge is holiday and we have paid enough money to be entertained. Unfortunately the staff was not willing to give us (family with 2 kids) the time of our life .......

          Lovely establishment. Tents are spacious and well kitted out. Rangers are knowledgeable and helpful.

          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.
