Winter is in full swing and we’ve got to say, we absolutely love it. Avid bush enthusiasts will know exactly why it’s one of the most glorious times to visit us. If you need a little more convincing , here are a few reasons why we can’t get enough of winter in the bush. 

Amazing Game Viewing 

During winter, cooler temperatures and thinner bush make for easier game spotting. At this time of the year, you’re also more likely to see more because animals tend to spend a lot more time together around watering holes. This makes the behaviour a little more predictable, giving you the chance to get some incredible sightings. 

Travel Is More Affordable 

With winter falling into the low season, many people take the opportunity to travel at this time of the year. Thanks to more competitive pricing and even less busy lodges, they can relax and enjoy a safari experience without the crowds. Although be warned, bookings tend to go fast in winter as many are looking for a mid-year escape.

Spectacular Sunrises & Sunsets 

Sure, we get these all year round, but there’s definitely something special about taking them in when you’re wrapped up in a blanket sipping on your favourite hot drink. If you’re able to catch a sunrise from a game vehicle, you’ll know what we mean. Coupled with an Amarula-spiked hot chocolate or coffee, it’s a start to the day that you just can’t beat. 

Luxurious Pampering 

It’s no secret that we enjoy the finer things in life. It’s why our Zolile Spa somehow feels even more luxurious in winter. This could be why many choose to book an array of treatments when visiting Nambiti Hills Private Game Experience at this time of year. From full-body massages to indulgent facials, our treatments keep the winter chill and all of its dryness at bay. We also happen to think that luxurious bubble baths in your suite feel even more lavish when it’s chilly outside. 

Food For The Soul 

Our culinary team pulls out all the stops in winter to bring our guests the ultimate in comfort foods. From hearty potjies to stunning soups, hot desserts and even a winter-inspired cocktail menu, it’s a celebration of all things winter and fabulously South African. If you’ve got any dietary requirements, the team will even find a way to work this into their menu so that you don’t have to miss out on any of the flavour.
