An Unforgettable Valentine’s Getaway

Melissa & her husband
Melissa Mitchell planned a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway with her husband, at Nambiti Hills. She wrote in to tell us about her stay, and we thought we’d share it with you:

“I was on Google checking for getaways when the Nambiti ad appeared. I decided to choose the safari experience – something my husband and I have always wanted to do. From the moment we got there, what stood out the most were the ‘people’. They were so helpful, accommodating and professional.

When we arrived at the lodge that afternoon, the team was waiting to welcome us with drinks in hand. We loved that. In the distance, we could see the beautiful view through the entrance. Our first activity was the game drives – amazing! Just amazing! Our ranger was Kingsley. He really impressed my husband and I with his vast knowledge of the area and all its landmarks. I remember one guest asking an arb question about the type of grass that animals eat and I was so surprised to hear Kingsley provide such in-depth details about it.

What stood out for us was that the game drives weren’t just an endless rambling journey with no direction. Kingsley took the time to drive to the best locations and even ensured that we get beautiful shots of the wildlife at sunset. He also asked us what we would like to see instead of just driving around. My husband and I especially enjoyed the sundowners and loved the soft ponchos on the game drive that kept us warm as it got chilly.

The lodge went above and beyond to make Valentine’s Day really special for us. Needless to say, the meals were absolutely delicious. What really caught our attention were the little heart cookies that were nicely hung on a tree for the Valentines Day sundowner stop off. The room drops were also such a nice touch. We even had amazing turn downs (chocolates, Valentine’s Day postcards and petals) on the bed as we got to our warm rooms after the cold game drive. I really loved the heated towel rails – everything was pure perfection. Add to that the views which were gorgeous beyond words – and you get the perfect Valentine’s getaway. Thank you for this amazing, luxurious and beautiful romantic getaway, Nambiti Hills.”
