Very well run conservancy. Second visit and must say well maintained and not overcrowded. We stayed in Ndaka and could not have asked for better. Can't wait to return.

In the three days we spent at Nambiti Hills we saw lion (a lion kill!), elephant, hyena, jackal, black rhino, giraffe, numerous species of antelope and birds, mongoose and even sand snakes mating in the road! All in all an amazing game viewing experience.
