What our guests say

“Nambiti was everything and more than we wished for. The staff are brilliant from the chef, to the manager, to the house staff to the game guide. Food is truly special, the room is outstanding with excellent views of the plain. The drives are awesome too. Our guide Etienne our guide was brilliant. We saw a lot of game and every drive was different. I can’t recommend Nambiti enough.”
