Springbok Lodge

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Springbok Lodge in Nambiti is a great option for a safari adventure, a stopover option as well as to explore the surrounding scenic countryside.

Springbok lodge guests experience the best safari experience in the thrilling safari drives while staying in the elevated tented luxury suites while enjoying delicious cuisine throughout the day.

Nambiti is between Durban and Johannesburg. It is around a 4 and a half-hour drive away from Johannesburg and a 3 and a half hour away from Durban. A runway for light aircraft or helicopters is accessible for guests wishing to fly to the reserve direct.

Featuring twenty-one elevated luxury tents to accommodate 50 guests, the accommodation at Springbok Lodge offers private viewing decks where comfortable chairs await. One king-size bed or two separate twin beds can be requested while a safety deposit box, hospitality tray, complimentary sherry, and a hairdryer are available.

Two of the tents are situated adjacent to the main lodge providing an access ramp instead of stairs to make it readily accessible for guests who used wheelchairs and those with mobility challenges. The boma, as well as the main lodge, are available by wheelchair. Furthermore, this lodge in Nambiti offers a uniquely-designed, wheelchair-accessible plunge pool.

The adventurous safari drives in the Private Game Reserve are about 3 hours long, depending on sightings and the weather. Guests enjoy memorable dinners in the outdoor boma surrounded by the bushveld and the sounds of the untamed wildlife. Breakfasts in the bush are offered by prior arrangement.

Nambiti reserve consists of 20 520 acres of pristine bushveld which is home to the Big Five, namely lions, buffaloes, leopards, rhinos and elephants. Cheetahs, hippos and over 31 species of plains game can also be observed here. This area has significant biodiversity, with Thornveld and majestic Acacia trees adding to the extensive grasslands which are similar to the plains of Central Africa.
