What a wonderful place ! The whole atmosphere at the Lodge and location was wonderful. The wildlife ie Zebra ,Giraffe Springbok etc was a real bonus for us and the chance to walk around the ranch was marvellous. The access road at 14km should not deter you from staying on the ranch. The road was in good condition and we had no problems in driving the road. We would highly recommend this Ranch for anyone wishing to experience the African way of life The host Dora and Franz welcomed us to their abode with welcome arms.

We saw ostriches and impala, and lots of birds, even though our stay was so short and not focused on wildlife. Don't forget to visit and support one of South Africa's most important art and craft centres at Rorke's Drift! Severa...

A beautiful restfull place to stay. Perfect location. Dora and her husband very welcoming hosts. Wish we had booked for more than one night. Really enjoyable evening on the stoep watching the weaver birds in the trees and the swallows nesting in the stoep.

Fantastic end to our holiday. Nxala Lodge was just perfect. As one guest said, "I thought I had died and gone to heaven." That sums it up very nicely. Book the Zebra Room if you can with lovely views over the lake and veld.
