• 8 Luxury Comfortable Suites
  • Balule Private Game Reserve
  • True african big five safari
  • Award winning & excellent rated

Located in an exclusive private reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park, Naledi offers two exquisite lodges: Bush Lodge, with three secluded suites set in atmospheric Kruger bushveld; and Enkoveni Lodge, whose eight suites overlook the game-dotted banks of one of Kruger’s rare perennial rivers – the Olifants River. The reserve holds high natural densities of Africa’s Big Five (elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion and leopard), and Naledi’s lodges provide a perfect base for guided game-viewing from open safari vehicles.

Among Naledi’s charms is the variety and flexibility of our idyllic accommodation. Whether you are a honeymoon couple, a trio of travelling companions, or a family group with grandparents and young children, Naledi will have the ideal suite (or combination of suites) for you.
Naledi’s founder Kjell Bismeyer still oversees daily operations, and his team’s commitment to excellence in hospitality and cuisine has repeatedly seen Naledi win the highest certifications from Booking.com and Trip Advisor. Naledi is also an African Continent Winner in the Luxury Safari Retreat category of the annual World Luxury Hotel Awards.

    Activities

    Coming to the bush is supposed to be a total experience – wild animals, in a wild place, often, up close and personal. Nobody understands this better than we do ! We know the thrill of watching lions on a kill at night, a few metres from our vehicle.

    We know what it means to be close to a fully grown male lion as it roars out its’ mighty challenge. We know what it is like to be amongst a herd of elephants, out on foot upwind of a buffalo herd, and close enough to a rhino to see it blink! …we also know how interesting our world is – the tracks and signs, the birds, the insects and the relationship between the earth, the creatures, the plants, the rain and the sun, and we’ll be very happy to share what we know with you …and not just close to nature, but right in it!!

    At Naledi we go out into the bush twice every day (at no extra charge) in our open game viewer – in the morning we’re up before sunrise and we’ll stop for coffee somewhere in the bush – in the afternoon we’re out as the day begins to cool and the animals start to move, at sunset we’ll stop for sundowners and then drive on into the night, looking for wildlife adventures ! After breakfast, we will go out into the bush on foot and whilst we are certainly in big five country, we’ll not forget the smaller marvels of the bush – from tiny flowers hiding under bushes to tracks and signs, birds and insects. If you are a keen photographer, you will love Naledi, because so are we! You are welcome to make use of our special camera mounts and we’ll do whatever we can to bring you that special photo – be it stopping for birds, small game, or just magnificent scenery.

    “Best experience we've ever had!”

    My husband and I were there for our honeymoon and this place deserves more than 5 stars. The staff are so funny and friendly, and the food is delicious. If you have any food preferences they will cater to your needs. We stayed in the Enkoveni Camp, in the Bushbuck Suite and it was worth every penny. You have meals with the other guests which is fantastic because you get to meet interesting people and share stories about the safari drives. The lodge is also very family friendly, and in between drives (one at 5 am and one at 4 pm) we were able to go back to our suite, relax and have alone time. One night they surprised us with a dinner in our suite on the balcony, overseeing the river, it was beautiful and so intimate. Benny and Thully were our safari rangers and they were fantastic, we saw 4 of the big 5 on our first drive, and saw the big 5 by our 3rd drive. They were very funny and informative, and always ensured we were safe. They were so good that they even spotted a chameleon at dusk, that was green in a green tree… We gave them a big tip at the end because they made our experience unforgettable. Would 100% go again.

    “Wonderful stay”

    We loved our stay at Naledi Enkoveni. We stayed in the Tusker suite and it was spacious and clean. We loved the sitting area and outdoor covered patio; saw elephants, antelope and monkeys in the river outside our room every day. Food was good and they did a nice job accommodating vegetarians in the group.
    The drivers and trackers were really fun to spend time with and we enjoyed the two safari trips each day.
    My only suggestion to make the resort better would be to share the food menu/selections in advance. The chef came out each meal to share what was being served, but having this the night before or that morning would be even better.

    “Amazing Lifetime Experience!”

    Five stars is simply not enough for the amazing Enkoveni Lodge and its wonderful team. To start, the grounds are beautiful. located on the banks of the Olifants River, Enkoveni provides sweeping, panoramic views filled with wildlife. It was wonderful to wake up, grab a cup of coffee and take in the view, checking out baboons, impalas an occasional giraffe or two and other wildlife as they come to the river for their morning drink. The drives were incredible. Jimmy and Vuyani were knowledgeable and both had great senses of humor. They were more than willing to go off-road to catch a sighting. The list of animals we saw is long, including the four of the big five, missing only the elusive leopard. The meals were fabulous. The chefs take pride in their preparations and the meals were as filling as they were delicious. Wait staff was attentive and entertaining, once performing folk music after a particularly beautiful dinner outside on the bridge and once after a sundowner. TK and Marcus did everything to make our stay wonderful. They were lovely to chat with at meals and provided interesting information about the area. Our stay was a beautiful experience and one we I’ll never forget. Thank you to the Enkoveni team!

    “The best place we stayed during our South Africa trip”

    We stayed for 3 nights at Naledi Enkoveni Camp and enjoyed it very much.
    The Safari tours were very successful- we were lucky to have a great team so we met many animals and birds. The guidance during the rides was very good, enriching and clear.
    The rooms very high standard- spacious, comfortable, clean and had a great view towards the river- were many animals came.
    Meals were varied and tasty.
    Staff was friendly and service was very good.
    It was the best experience we had during our 3 weeks visit in South Africa (and we had many great experiences…)
