About Nkomazi Game Reserve

Nkomazi Game Reserve is a private wildlife area, located south-west of the famed Kruger National Park in South Africa. It is surrounded by vast mountains, river valleys and large grasslands - which stretch over 15,000 hectares and give way to a hugely varied ecosystem. This area is known for its abundance of wildlife and birdlife, making it the perfect safari destination for those seeking something more intimate.

Nkomazi Game Reserve is host to just 14 luxury tents, all wonderfully situated on the banks of the Komati River. The tents provide a sought-after safari glamping experience with all the comforts of home, and feature private river-facing decks, spacious king-size beds, lovely relaxation spaces and luxurious outdoor baths and showers. The main lodge is host to a bar, swimming pool, and dining area where breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are served daily.

  • Weekend spoil

    Beautiful small game lodge with accommodation to die for. 5 star ... setting magnificent on the banks of the Komati River. Game is not like the Sabie... bit limited but reserve is quite beautiful. I would say an ideal honeymoon or R and R weekend, anniversary or simply a great getaway for a spoil
