Private Big 5 Safari Experience

Nambiti is the only game reserve in the area with the Big 5 and currently has over 40 other species of game including cheetah, giraffe, hippo, hyena, impala, eland and zebra.

Close to the Drakensberg Mountains

Less than an hour away, the majestic Drakensberg Mountain Range is a World Heritage Site full of extraordinary beauty and numerous activities.


The spirit of Africa will fill your soul and the experience will remain forever.

Nambiti Private Game Reserve is set in KwaZulu-Natal on 22 000 magnificent acres near the town of Ladysmith, conveniently close to Johannesburg/Pretoria (3.5-4 hours) and Durban (2.5 hours). Nambiti is also close to the renowned KZN battlefields, a major attraction of this region. One of its major drawcards is that Nambiti is situated in a malaria-free area, meaning that guests don’t have to take medication before visiting.

This reserve boasts the attractions of the Big 5, the only one in the area to do so, and Nambiti’s biodiversity (it encompasses grasslands, riverine bush, savannah and thornveld) ensures a thrilling and unprecedented diversity of game (there are 40 other game species besides the big 5) and birding sightings.
