Activities

Nature lovers will share in the many wonders of Nkomazi – its diversity of wildlife and habitat, its natural beauty and major geological finds. Here guests can take part in a range of discoveries leading from one natural wonder to the next.

Watch the sun rise over the North Eastern boundaries of the reserve during a morning game drive or take in the spectacular view from lookout points among the rocky granite sentinels in the highlands of the reserve. Waterfalls and rock pools are impressive, while rolling grasslands support large herds of free-roaming wildlife, making Nkomazi a game-viewing haven.

And, when the sun sinks low in the Mountainlands, settle the day by returning to the luxury and opulence of the Komati Tented Lodge.

Guests can take part in many exciting activities including game drives that can last up to three hours, nature walks, bird watching, star gazing and rock art viewing. The Lodge features a gift boutique, an outdoor boma dining area and a Majilis Lounge Tent with a viewing deck.

The River Retreat offers an escape to enjoy some pampering. Awaken your senses and allow us to rejuvenate body, mind and soul. Inspired by surrounding elements that guide us, our selection of body and beauty treatments cater for men and women.
