Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow, where do I start?! From the moment we were warmly welcomed by Brandon at the airport to the moment we were waved goodbye by the entire team, we loved every second. We could list a thousand highlights but what really made it such a memorable holiday was the staff at Nyati. A special mention goes to Rome-Marie for her kindness and professionalism and Henry for his knowledge and dedication to the animals and his job. Finally, Daniel, for his friendliness, passion and warmth. He is a real credit to Nyati and a lovely gentleman all around. He shared his enthusiasm and answered all of the questions that were asked with thoughtfulness and expertise. The waitresses were very hospitable and always greeted us with smiles on the faces. The food was delicious and different every night. As for the Game Drives…. there was something new to see every day and the guides were dedicated to locating the animals for us to see. Even when the animals were hiding, the guides would be bursting with facts about plants, birds and even identifying animal tracks. We definitely recommend Nyati. We have only been gone for a day but we miss it already and are planning our next trip back! Thank you Nyati for the experience of a lifetime!

Property's Favourite Review
Nyati was lovely in every possible way. The property was lovely with African inspired design, all comforts, great riverfront views, and frequent visits by animals (you’ll still be safe though). The food too was really good - a different menu everyday and a lovely chef to explain it all. The staff too was excellent, and things ran like clockwork - the ladies at the reception would always ask you about your plans in advance to make sure everything was on track. The highlight of a stay here is obviously all the game drives you get to do. I was able to spot three of the big five, as well as a host of other interesting animals you could only find in Africa. The sundowners and morning coffees in the bush were great too, and the lodge took care to bring out more cars than necessary so that everyone had ample space. Best of all, being in a private reserve, we could drive in the dark as well, which was a really unique experience for me! The place also offers excellent value for money if you book online through their site. All in all, I’d highly recommend it to anyone thinking of heading to this part of Kruger, and definitely would return here myself at some point. :)

Fantastic - what a great experience! We were traveling in a large family group of 19 people. Age 8-70 and we all had an amazing week. Great accommodation with a very high standard (we stayed in the Rhino Tents). The food is amazing and the service and friendliness of the staff is absolutly outstanding. The rangers are highly capable and eager to explain about the various wonders of nature. We saw all big 5's and learned a lot during the Game Drives. The location of Nyati right next to the river means there is an aboundance of wildlife just around the camp. Thank you Nyati - we will be back! Best regards - Michael

We stayed in one of the suites and had forgotten what we booked, so when we first entered the suite it was amazing! The deck and private pool overlooking the river are awesome. The guides were knowledgable and fun, the food delicious!

One of the most amazing bush experiences of my life, which is high praise as I work in tourism and get to travel a fair amount. A few things that stood out for me: 1) The food has to be right at the top! Carefully prepared, amazingly tasty, beautifully plated 2) Being there in winter means that when you do get a sighting it is a pretty close encounter. Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo all played along. The top two sightings were a leopard walking inches away from the vehicle, and being in the middle of a large group of elephants and hearing their rumbling and sounds while a baby elephant flitted around family members and the vehicles 3) The birdlife is prolific. From the Pel's Fishing Owl to a Martial Eagle with a kill. Highly recommended for Birders! 4) Crazy beautiful sunrises and sunsets with the most magical natural scenery you can dream up 5) Luxurious accommodation with stunning views of the Olifants River 6) Kind, caring and friendly staff You can't go wrong visiting Nyati Safari Lodge!

The location is amazing. Private accommodation facing a river. Saw many animals on from our patio sitting area. The accomodation is relaxing and private, we didn't feel cramped up with other guests. Some of the fittings in the bathroom and bedrooms require some updating/repair and the mattresses were very firm but the rooms were very pretty and comfortable. Beautiful pool lounging area. The dining and bar setup is beautiful and social (if you like). The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful (no need to bring anything). Vegetarian options were great. Please exercise caution at meals regarding allergies. We had a seafood allergy in our group who was accidentally served prawn at lunch despite the allergy being advised twice at check-in (the food was replaced with a tasty alternative). The drink service was great. The dining, maintenance, and housekeeping staff were helpful, friendly, and accomodating. The atmosphere was amazing - all guests seemed extremely happy. Two complimentary game drives are offered per day. There are also options for nature walks. We very much enjoyed our stay and felt extremely relaxed and welcome right away. I would definitely recommend and would go again.

This place is really especial. The staff was friendly and attentive. Everything we requested was accommodated. We got there late on the day of check in and they arranged a private safari for us, giving us enough time to have lunch and drink. The safari were great. Probably not the best time of the year to visit as the bush is super thick and green. But we knew about that coming in and the animals will do what they want. We still had amazing sightings and took unbelievable pictures! The food was incredible. We loved all our meals and it drinks! Facilities were good and our place was very nice. An all 10/10.

It was a great 4D3N stay there! Prior to going there, we have yet to see any lions during our two days st kruger national park. When we were pick up at the main gate and were on our way to the lodge, we saw a pack of lions and it was an amazing start to our stay there. The staff there especially Natasha and chef Simon were really helpful and we really appreciate the quality service provided. They even ordered and prepared halal meat for us. The guides were very knowledgeable and fun too especially Noddy. We saw a lot of animals including rhinos, hyena and even hippos and crocodiles. The villa was really spacious and cosy. Really happy about everything there!

We had a great safari experience for a week wtith the big five and many other animals and birds. The bush walks and game drives were excellent and so was view the from the balcony in front of the chalet. We could watch antilopes, elephants, crocodiles and much more without leaving the lodge. We had several different guides through the week with different forms of knowledge and they all added to the total experience. Food, drink and housekeeping just worked. We have a couple of suggestions for improving even more: Please add more bushwalks, preferably every morning. It is the most amazing way to experience the African nature. Maybe also offer specialised birding walks/drives since there are numerous birds to be seen in the area. You should also ask guests to bring their own water bottles and have containers to fill them from. That could severely reduce the amount of plastic waste in a company that evidently care about nature.
