Experience 5-star luxury in an earthy, unpretentious setting when you come to Nambiti Plains. 

Imaginatively weaved and constructed, our lodge is perched on the edge of a waterhole overlooking the abundant plains of Nambiti. Spaces are open and uncluttered, leading your gaze to the incredible views of the bushveld beyond.

The lodge is unfenced so that animals can roam freely. Similarly, we want you to feel like you are part of the bush, more than just a spectator.

Every spacious suite at our 5-star luxury lodge is equipped with all the amenities – along with our extra little touches – and has a private deck overlooking the expansive plains.

Our chefs are proud of their ethnic-inspired cuisine, which is presented in a fine dining format, using only the freshest ingredients.

Enjoy spectacular safari sightings during your two daily game drives,

Nambiti Plains is situated only 28km North of Ladysmith, roughly a 4-and-a-half-hour drive from Johannesburg and 3 and a half hours from Durban.

    Warm and welcoming reception staff. Amazing honeymoon suite! Squeaky Clean, fresh and great views. Sunrise view from the honeymoon suite is amazing , loved the outdoor shower 5 Star Food , amazing views while you eat , lots of animals pass by amazing wildlife with breathtaking views. Game Drives are fun and always see something new; our Guide Jason was amazing.


    This hit the spot for luxurious living and diversity of wildlife. Amazing close encounters on every game drive, including cheetahs and four of the big five, although the leopard eluded us. We even saw black rhinos wallowing in the mud on our arrival transfer from the car park! The waterhole close to the lodge attracts wildlife throughout the day, with excellent views from the veranda. Although the lodge is unfenced and we had to be escorted back to our accommodation at night, we felt safe and secure at all times. Cooking and food presentation were first class and nothing was too much trouble for the chef, with all culinary requests catered for and remembered at every meal. The honeymoon suite was amazing and worth the additional outlay.
