I recently realised I never reviewed my stay. Which was hands down the best place and experience in all of my travels.
From the moment I arrived, till the moment they dropped me at Lady smith the staff made me feel at home (well even more luxurious) and they were so kind, anything that I needed they would supply instantly.

You had the wild animals at your balcony, you could listen to them make callings at night if they weren't beside your room. The reserve has the big 5!!!! With game drives morning and night, you get to witness the beauty of Africa with a glass of wine or a cuppa tea and all of the animals in their natural habitats. The reason I went here was purely because they're is a cheetah rehabilitation project. By the first game drive I knew the animals were well respected here.

The food was delicious and came in abundances. Many months later and I am still craving those dinners! I couldn't fault a thing. Dining at it's finest!

As for the rooms, they were luxurious! The bed was huge and so perfectly comfortable, with a delicious chocolate waiting on my pillow each night, outdoor shower, a bath too look out to, and watch the sunsets over the horizon.
Magical Mornings and Evenings.

I highly recommend staying 3 nights. Although no stay would ever be long enough.
No words or pictures can justify the beauty and exquisite accommodation.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else & cannot wait to return!

Thank you for having me!

At Nambiti Plains I loved that I could watch the sun set over the horizon whilst capturing the moment of a pride of lions stalking their prey, beautiful wildlife.

I loved dinner in the Boma next to the evening african fire.
