This is a small quiet lodge in the Welgevonden game reserve; but, great for a peaceful getaway, and not too far from Johannesburg. The game rangers are wonderfully knowledgeable and open to many questions. Viewing of smaller game is excellent. We were lucky enough to see a cheetah on the hunt... The staff are friendly, accommodating, and give you just...

Convenient and comfortable getaway. Close to JHB (3hr drive). Staff was great, Skye the ranger and manager was excellent at hosting with great knowledge of the reserve. The only thing better than Livingstone the chef's food was his great character.

We took our son and his new wife to Nungabane for 2 nights. It was her first visit to SA and her first experience of the bush, wildlife and game drives. We all had a wonderful time, the lodge is small, the rooms are beautiful and pretty private from one another. The staff were incredibly friendly and Livingstone and Anna...

We stayed at Nungumbane Lodge for 3 nights and had a wonderful time there. Food was great and we especially enjoyed our gamedrives with Josphat and his stories and facts about the animals we saw. It was amazing to see a cheetah being chased by baboons and we were glad Josphat turned out to be an elephant whisperer when two...

So we arrive at Welgevonden and within 20 minutes we witness what many only get to see on David Attenborough docos. Our amazing guide Josefat spots a cheetah mother and her two cubs. We follow them a short distance and then we notice the mother eyeing a group of unsuspecting impalas. She calls quietly to her cubs who instinctively know...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Nungubane Game Lodge in March 2016. It is an amazing place - the staff are so welcoming and friendly, and the facilities are beautiful. We saw so much on our game drive, and it is a much more intimate setting than at the larger parks. Our guide Josephat was extremely knowledgeable...

Thank you for making our stay memorable. Josephat knew exactly where to take us on our drives what a living GPS and Livingstone food was out of this world. Such a great Chef. Cannot stop thinking about the Boma Supper on our last night. Would love to bring my husband along next time.
