The great ‘family’ escape!


We recently received a letter from a special guest, Sean Martin, who really enjoyed his stay with us. Here is an account of his experience:

“We decided to take our family holiday to Nambiti Hills. My wife and two teenage sons were really excited and from the moment we arrived, we were taken aback by the cosiness and intimate feeling that the lodge exudes. My wife loved the special welcome we received. The staff come out to meet us and had drinks in hand. The food was amazing! What stands out for me is ordering a specific starter, being told I could take a second! I really loved that because it gave me the opportunity to sample the menu quite a bit, and I am quite a foodie, you see. The scenery was breath-taking. Our rooms were beautiful and set the ambience for a relaxing family holiday!
Since there was much talk about the games drives, we went on all of them. Needless to say, they were ‘unbelievable.’ I got to see the Big 4 as the leopard could not be spotted. The rhino, buffalo and the lion sightings blew us away. On our first game drive, we drove through a herd of elephants, which was absolutely amazing. I felt afraid and excited all at the same time, being so close to these wonderful animals. What really struck me was the stories I had often heard about Rhino Conservation – but to actually see them in action was something else. We saw rangers walking around with rifles protecting the rhino, which was really fascinating. They are so dedicated to what they do! The game drives were fantastic and I especially loved the ponchos, which keep you warm from the wind and chill on the early morning drives. Reggie, the ranger who drove us around, was extremely impressive with his vast knowledge of the wildlife and layout of the reserve.
This was my first stay at Nambiti Hills, and the experience has by far given us the best memories. We would love to visit again soon.”

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Sean. We look forward to welcoming you back at our lodge.
