The Lodge

The Lodge is imaginatively weaved and constructed, perched on the waterhole edge overlooking the natural plains. The Lodge’s emphasis is on a modern yet eco-friendly minimalist approach, located right in the bush with no manicured gardens, thereby reducing the impact on the surrounding environment. A fine line between luxury and the reality of the African wild. Guests can relax with a cocktail on the deck, take a dip in the swimming pool and watch as the animals drink at the waterhole.

 

Suites

Each of the 7 spacious suites are designed with the utmost care and detail. Boasting 180 degree panoramic views through floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. Guests can view the animals from the luxury of free standing stone baths, outdoor showers, and private wrap around decks. Suites offer ceiling fans or air conditioning, coffee and tea stations and mini bars to ensure guests can immerse themselves in the pure luxury that is Nambiti Plains.

 

Dining

Dining is a culinary journey that reflects and celebrates local South African flavors. A journey that plays on all the senses with an uncompromising commitment to using only the freshest ingredients. The Chefs are producing as much as possible on site from freshly made compotes with which to flavor your breakfast yoghurt; breads to tempt you at lunch; gorgeous fruit salsas to accompany your mains at dinner and a whole host of other delicious items. Vegetarians and any other dietary requirements will be cared for as far as possible.
