FAQ

What makes Nambiti Plains different from other lodges?
The lodge itself only caters for 14 people, allowing exceptional service while existing harmoniously with the nature surrounding it. The lodge is set in the bush with no fencing, allowing animals to move freely through the lodge area resulting with as little impact on the natural setting.

What facilities can I expect to find in my room?
All our rooms, whether they are the inter-leading luxury units or the more private executive suites, are expansive and larger than typical hotel rooms found elsewhere. Both room types have their own private decks and open-plan bathroom areas with large bath tubs over-looking the African wild, as well as indoor showers. The executive suites additionally include an outside shower as well. All rooms have a safe, minibar, tea & coffee station, torches, hair dryers, towels, bathrobes, fans, mosquito nets & underfloor heating.

Our amenities are produced by Africology who pride themselves on their award-winning, natural & eco-friendly range of soaps & body lotions.

Is there a swimming pool?
Yes – there is a swimming pool located at the main lodge, over-looking the waterhole. Our pool is often frequented by elephants stopping by for a drink.

Is the water from the tap safe to drink?
The water is safe to drink however we take further precautions by triple-filtering it and exposing it to UV light to purify the water. This water is available from the main lodge and each room has a jug of filtered water which is refilled twice a day.

Is Nambiti Reserve free of malaria?
Yes.

Is there internet and cell phone reception?
Yes there is, however internet is limited.

Will I definitely see elephants/lions/leopard, etc?
While our guides are trained to provide a diverse and holistic safari experience, it is not always possible to see all of the animals. Invariably, we are very successful at finding four of the Big Five and an abundance of general game, as well as some unique species that are not seen in other parks such as Oryx, Steenbuck, Serval, Porcupine and Red Hartebeest, although at times animals can be unpredictable and elusive.

Are children allowed on game drives?
Since Nambiti Plains are not fenced in, please note that we therefore do not accommodate children under the age of 8 years. Children between 8-12 are welcome on game drives with their parents.

How many other guests will be on the game vehicle with me?
Our game drive vehicles can accommodate up to ten people, however we aim to keep the maximum number of people on vehicles between 6 – 8, subject to family groups and couples. If you would like a more intimate safari experience, a private vehicle and guide can be booked at R 3,000.00 per day.

What should I wear?
We recommend comfortable, closed shoes and neutral-coloured clothing. It is also advisable to bring a jacket or warm jersey to wear on drive as the vehicles are open.

Do you cater for different dietary requirements, allergies, etc?
Nambiti Plains is owned by the founders of Fry’s Vegetarian Foods therefore we are very flexible with other dietary requirements. We can easily cater for different diets including vegetarian, vegan, Halaal, gluten-free, dairy-free, LCHF diet (banting).

Do you do anything special for anniversaries and honeymoon couples?
We do have a romantic package on offer which includes a romantic bubble bath with sparkling wine & flowers, followed by a private dinner.
