          Nyala is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the wildlife, we stayed there in 2009.The staff were very friendly and attentive. Our ranger Gideon went out of his ways to ensure we see as many animals as we can and he was very knowledgeable.The rooms and the lounge area were lovely. We had a fantastic time and can only recommend it.

          Our stay at Nyala was just fantastic! We saw 4 of the Big 5, including cheetah! Gideon is a great ranger, and his knowledge of the bush is unbelievable! Lizzy and Goodness were so helpful in the kitchen, and ensured that everything was in place with the accommodation! Thanks to Bill and Kamilla for making my dads birthday a great memory, and for the breakfast! We will definitely visit Nyala again!

          This was a particularly memorable part of our 6-week vacation in S.A. & Namibia - certainly the best by far for game viewing. Apart from almost rear-ending a very-surprised rhino on the way to searching for a leopard, we rewarded by a wonderfully clear sighting of the leopard. The staff were excellent and VERY accommodating - we can't praise them highly enough.In short, it lived up to its claims.
