Sitting in the Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge restaurant, you’ll find yourself carried off into soothing late night conversation, while you experience a euphoria of the senses.
Ambient lighting, gentle chit-chat, the soothing hum of wildlife outside, infused with a crackling fire and a glass of wine that encourages you to exhale.
You’ve had a day worth celebrating.
Now, melting into your chair, you’re anticipating an exploration of Africa’s finest flavors. Little do you know, the ingredients on this menu are a collaboration of the continents.
Situated on a prime sector of the Nambiti Private Game Reserve outside of Ladysmith, Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge offers an unforgettable personal retreat, filled with rest and relaxation.
The thrill of wild animals and 5-star luxury whisking you away from your everyday stresses and routine.
It’s the perfect place for those who love escapes to romantic settings, for those who need to be truly pampered, and for those who appreciate the quiet calm of nature.
The air is crisp, the drinks are cold, the animals are wild and the food is prepared with the utmost care and attention to detail.
In fact, our ingredients are so fresh, we get them specially delivered directly to us, from the source.
Our chefs pride themselves on impeccably great tasting food. And great tasting food is only achievable if the ingredients are of the best, freshest quality. So… you can imagine the logistics that go into preparing a seafood dish here at the lodge, some 250kms from the nearest coastal city.
But it’s not just the seafood. Most of the items on our menu, including the basics it takes to prepare them, are not available in the nearest town.
Our Salmon is flown in from Norway, our red meats are anti-biotic and hormone free, from a small abattoir in Richmond, KwaZulu-Natal, where we can trace its origins back to the exact animal. Our micro herbs, fresh greens and garnishes are delivered to our door and you’ll even find an edible flower or two on some of our salads and desserts. Although these didn’t grow in our garden, we know precisely which one they came from.
By ensuring only the best ingredients, and in turn, the best dishes are made, is just another way of showing you that we care about your experience here at Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge. A successful day for us involves early morning coffee wake ups, Big 5 sightings and… taking empty plates back to the kitchen at the end of a meal.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our little piece of 5-star paradise in the wild and wonderful African bush. See you soon.
