The Reserve’s incredible biodiversity; including savannah, thornveld, riverine bush, majestic acacia trees and extensive grasslands mirror the plains of central Africa.   The abundance of natural water, perennial rivers and breath-taking waterfalls on the Sundays River make Nambiti a unique sanctuary attracting several rare bird species and an enviable array of raptors and vultures.

A big thank you to all the staff at Nambiti Plains for giving us the best stay! The food, the room, and the game drives we're just awesome and the highlight of our holiday in South Africa. We plan to return one day.
