I stayed at Nzumba for 3 nights. Werner, Rika, Andries, Katy and the rest of the staff were wonderful. I was constantly amazed at the breadth of Werner's knowledge of the reserve and its denizens. Katy's cooking is absolutely fantastic.
The compound feels utterly remote (until you go to check email and find that the wi-fi works great!), located right next to a much visited watering hole. The cabins are really comfortable and roomy, and the common areas are terrific.

Indimenticabile esperienza al N’Zumba Lodge
Siamo stati ospiti del N’Zumba Lodge dal 12 al 15 agosto ed è stata un esperienza straordinaria e indimenticabile. Il Lodge è molto confortevole e in un ottima posizione. Ciò che ha reso la nostra esperienza straordinaria e indimenticabile è stata però la grande ospitalità di Rika e la fortuna di avere incontrato Werner, una guida dotata di grande passione, conoscenza e professionalità. Con lui abbiamo imparato ad amare i grandi animali e a capire l’armonia che lega i loro comportamenti. Ci siamo sentiti immersi nella natura sempre accompagnati da parole competenti e appassionate.
Grazie a Werner e a Rika per questa straordinaria esperienza, speriamo davvero di tornare presto a trovarvi!!

Wonderful time at Nzumba 6/9-10
The food at Nzumba outshone our other lodges. Werner knows so much about wildlife, plantlife, the stars, etc. Most thrilling part of our experience was seeing a herd of at least 100 elephants of all ages gathered at the water's edge. It looked like one of the cows had 2 tiny calves that might even have been twins (or not). Lovely!

Amazing stay at Nyeleti
We spent part of our honeymoon at Nyeleti on safari with Shaun from Moriti Private Safaris. To say we enjoyed our time as Lee and Don's guests would be a radical understatement. Every aspect of our stay at Nyeleti was sublime, and we were so sad when it finally came time to say goodbye. The hospitality, accommodations, food, and company of everyone at Nyeleti were all among the best we've ever experienced in our travels. We can't wait to stay at Nyeleti on our next safari adventure (which can't come soon enough!) :)
Thank you for everything, and see you soon!

Amazing honeymoon at Nyeleti
We did a private 9 day safari with Moriti Safaris, and are so pleased that our guide took us to Nyeleti, it was by far the best place that we stayed on our whole honeymoon.
The camp is absolutely stunning, so beautiful and relaxing and the accommodation was very clean. The staff were all very friendly and the service was amazing.
Lee-Anne was incredibly helpful with advice on where to go in Johannesburg after our stay at Klaserie, and we really enjoyed the little touches like Lee-Anne and Don welcoming us back from each game drive. We were surprised on our last night by a beautiful candlelit dinner underneath the stars, which was the perfect ending to our stay, albeit not a welcome one as we didn't want to leave!

Our family spent five days at Nzumba earlier this month. We had a fantastic time and this is an experience that we will remember forever.
The camp is gorgeous, the chalets are beautifully decorated and offer more comfort than we could ever have imagined was possible in such a remote place. The food was spectacular and the entire staff, guided by Rika, did a wonderful job to make our stay memorable.
We would also like to address a very special thank you to our guide, Werner, and to our tracker, Andries, who went out of their way to make sure that we would get the most out of every single ride. When my wife first told me that she had booked a 5-day safari I was a little concerned that we might get a bit bored after a couple of days. Well, I could not have been more wrong and by the time we left, the four of us wished we could have stayed three more weeks at Nzumba. Every ride with Werner felt literally like setting out for a new adventure. We spent nearly 8 hours together every day on the rides only, and we just could not get enough. He is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to the bush and I cannot thank him enough for taking every opportunity to share his knowledge with us. We cannot remember it all but one thing we will not forget is his passion, and his love for the bush which quickly became contagious. We have so many wonderful memories, including some of a few very special moments: going off track in the middle of the bush to spot a herd of buffalos, chase a leopard, or stepping off the Defender to get a close-up of a rhino… Credit to Andries for his exceptional tracking and spotting skills: getting a sighting of a chameleon, at night, 50 meters away from our car with just a floodlight completely cracked me up!
When we got back home, our daughters got us a glass jar which they decided to use to start saving so we may return to Nzumba on another vacation, and we are very seriously thinking about it.
Thanks again for an exceptional experience!

What A Stay!
Where to begin...Our stay at Kitara was superb and nothing short of 5 star! We felt spoiled the entire time we were there. The facilities, room are outstanding and the views from the pool into the bushveld something to behold.
The food was excellent and we dined like there was no tomorrow from brunch to high tea and then onto dinner. Delicious and plentiful.
The morning and late afternoon game drives were relaxing. The knowledge that was imparted about the flora and fauna was great and we learned something. A big effort was also made to see game especially the Wild Dogs.
Lee-Anne and Donovan, I can't thank you enough for making this a once in a lifetime experience and for all your help and input into the engagement arrangements. A big thank you to all the other staff that made it possible and so memorable.
We will see you soon again.
Thank you & Much Love

Kitara is absolutely wonderful
We were treated like royalty and so appreciate all the personal touches the staff at Kitara allowed us to experience. Thank you for such a memorable few days. The meals were outstanding, game drives a unique treat, the grounds were pristine and our hosts gave us such special care. We were truly pampered!
