Nature enthrals us from a young age; as children, backyards become playgrounds filled with endless possibility. There, we become fairies, soldiers, pirates and royalty. If we are lucky enough to travel to a Game Reserve, this feeling is magnified, and our imagination is brought to life.

From the moment we enter the gates, we are explorers. Every animal spotted is a new discovery – each animal is magical, undiscovered, unknown, unseen, untamed.

When we become adults, going back to nature resurrects this feeling of absolute wonder and delight. This is just one of the reasons we must fight so hard to protect it.

Back in 2013, the United Nations (UN) proclaimed 3 March as World Wildlife Day, to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild animals and plants.

While we are all too familiar with news about endangered species and deforestation, there are always instances of progress and positive storylines. Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge is surrounded by mesmerising wildlife, from large game animals such as elephants, lion and rhino, to vivid birdlife such as crested barbets to long-tailed widowbird.

Iconic flat-top acacia and distinctive blood-red flowers from the South African sausage tree are just some of the indigenous flora found on the Reserve which stir up romantic images of Africa. Enjoy the flora and fauna found at Nambiti Hills Private Game Lodge with twice-daily Game Drives and celebrate the natural wonders which we are blessed to share this earth with.
