Whilst the wildlife experience in the Nambiti Game Reserve is enough to attract visitors, guests staying at Springbok Lodge experience a different style of camping. Springbok Lodge’s elevated safari tents offer opulence in the African bush. The tents are air-conditioned with cool or warming capability, electric blankets in winter keeping guests warm. The elevated tents all have private bathroom en suite and a viewing deck with comfortable chairs. The rooms are furnished with a king size bed (twin bed option), comfortable seating, a tea station, complimentary sherry, safe and a hairdryer. A new concept in tent accommodation has been initiated with the addition of 6 new tents with brick walls, canvas window inserts and a canvas roof. One has to look particularly hard to notice the difference between the two types of accommodation.
Two of the tents at Springbok Lodge, adjacent to the main lodge facility, are equipped with an access, catering for those with mobility challenges or who are wheelchair-bound. The Main Springbok Lodge and the boma are also accessible to wheelchairs. The lodge has a uniquely-designed, wheelchair-accessible plunge pool.
