Welcome to Nambiti Self Catering Unit’s website

Situated in the Malaria free , big 5 Nambiti Game Reserve

Enjoy our affordable self-catering accommodation in the Cheetah Ridge Bush Lodge. Set apart from the Lodge, the Bush Lodge is a fantastic family get away destination and can accommodate 10 people comfortably in 5 unique spacious bedrooms one of which is an en-suite bathroom. The private boma is the perfect setting for family or friends to gather around the fire to chat about the days happenings while enjoying a traditional South African braai. The open garden allows guests the opportunity to do some mid-morning bird-watching while keeping a watchful eye for any passing wildlife. Dinner’s may be served in the dining room, on the veranda or perhaps enjoy a traditional braai in the boma. There are 2 bathrooms situated in the house, one of which has a shower and the other a bath as well as toilets. The farm-style kitchen and scullery  are fully equipped with all the essentials, the perfect opportunity for you to tap into your inner chef. The Bush Lodge caters for all seasons, in the warm summer months why not cool off with a quick dip in your own private swimming pool and for the chillier winter months our guests can curl up in front of the fireplace with a good bottle of red wine and a book to warm up.
