Nambiti Private Game Reserve


Trade the big city for the Big 5


Nambiti Private Game Reserve is settled in the heart of Kwazulu Natal’s legendary battlefields. Wide-ranging grasslands mirror the plains of central Africa complemented by tall acacia trees and thornveld. The Sundays River weaves its way through the landscape, amid valleys and mountains before cascading down a dramatic 40m-drop.

The area’s biodiversity and perpetual natural water systems offer a sanctuary for more than 280 bird species. Goliath heron, giant kingfisher, and sandpiper can be seen in the riverine forests while vultures and martial eagles circle the skies. The usually elusive cheetah is a common sight, seen stalking through the savannah’s long grass while the Le Sueur Cheetah Project allows visitors to interact with these spotted felines. The Big 5 are no strangers to the area and can be seen roaming alongside eland, kudu, gemsbok, giraffe, zebra, and hippo. 

The local community is actively involved in Nambiti’s conservation efforts and the reserve is home to Kwa Cheetah, a breeding and relocation programme intent on releasing cheetah back into the wild. The reserve boasts seven lodges each with their own drawing card: think private viewing-decks, outdoor showers, swimming pools surrounded by lush gardens, and beautiful tented suites.
