Enjoy a sensational South Africa wildlife adventure with an all-inclusive safari lodge stay, daily game drives and a bush walk – includes all travel

For adventure on an epic scale, there’s fewer places on the planet as compelling as South Africa – the so-called Rainbow Nation that’s edged on three sides by 3,000 kilometres of stunning coastline and fuelled by wildlife-stalked savannahs, lush grasslands, Big Five national parks, incredible game reserves and too-cool cities.

Managing to pull off back-to-basics with lashings of luxury, the unique, five-star Nkomazi Private Game Reserve on the banks of the Komatie River tempts with off-the-scale wildlife, as well as eye-popping views of towering mountains, broad river valleys, and lush grasslands. It's no wonder it dons a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

During your trip, you'll stay in a well-appointed tent overlooking your own private plunge pool, and enjoy meals down in the dining tent or Majilis Lounge, which has panoramic views of the bush, or in the traditional boma in good weather. Twice-daily game drives will give you the opportunity to spot the Big Five, and an included bush walk means you can get even closer to some of these magnificent creatures. 

The look in your luxury Noble tent is one of boutique-chic spiced up with traditional African artwork and aesthetics; think wooden, flooring, rich hues, lavish fabrics, and elegant design flourishes. A king-sized bed dressed with deluxe linens, private teak sun deck with private plunge pool, en-suite bathroom with indoor shower, and additional outdoor bath and shower complete the lovely touches.

You’ll get to enjoy a true taste of Africa, savouring authentic flavours and a classic bush dining experience – there’s an outdoor boma or an indoor dining tent, while elsewhere you’ll find the tranquil Majilis Lounge Tent with a viewing deck.


For top-to-toe pampering, you'll find Riverside Retreat Spa – the perfect way to wind down after a day searching for the famous Big Five. Pre-booking treatments is required.


Nkomazi Private Game Reserve sits in all its glory in South Africa’s Mpumalanga, right on the banks of the Komati River. Situated amid 30,000 acres of bushland, up-close animal encounters are assured, and with twice-daily game drives, you’ll have every chance of spotting the Big Five.
