The whole family had a fab time at Nungubane, The lodge is very intimate and Jacque the general manager is really able to make you feel relaxed, like it's your own lodge. All staff were genuinely friendly and Livingston in the kitchen cooks up great 3 course meals - best lamb shank ever!

Allowing for a 4 hour drive from Jo'burg, we ( gf and I ) arrived just in time for the afternoon game drive on the 37,000 hectare Welgevondan private game reserve and were immediately impressed by our charismatic, very knowledgable ranger and Game Lodge manager, Jacque.
