A slice of heaven! We spent 4 glorious nights at Nambiti Hills. The service was excellent, accommodation luxurious, food amazing and game viewing excellent. Our ranger Norman and tracker Tico were full of wonderful stories and kept us intrigued and entertained with sightings: big and small. Keep up the good service. Chantelle and the staff were absolutely accommodating and made our stay even more pleasurable. Thanks to a great team.
