Hoedspruit finds itself in an enviable position today because of its access to the private game areas of the Timbavati and Klaserie and now the most recent discovery presented in the Blue Canyon Private Big 5 Game Reserve. It is evolving from an agricultural town into a world class safari location.

Just a stone’s throw away from the Kruger National Park and is surrounded by game-rich country that makes it an obvious growing demand destination. It has grown into a premier eco-tourism, wildlife investment destination because of its association with some of the best ‘Big 5’ viewing in South Africa.

This was a welcome return visit for my wife and I and this time we were joined by my daughter and partner so they could share the wonderful exclusive safari experience combined with luxurious accommodation and fine dining. It was also my wife and daughter's joint birthday and our lovely hosts Ian and Maxine, along with their superb chef Maria, made the day one to remember. Our excellent guides Ian O and Mike led us to unforgettable Big 5 game views.

As I was swinging in the hammock chair on the porch of our guest house with my eyes opening and closing while I listened to and watched the African wildlife at the drinking hole in front of Nyumbani, I turned to my husband and told him we were in paradise. Ian and Maxine have cultivated a stunning hideaway in the South African landscape. We were the only two people our first night and felt like royalty. We loved our game drives with Ian and Cuzzi, were delighted with our chef Stewart and his creations, and were inspired by our hosts Ian and Maxine. We hope to return with our teenage children someday. Absolutely loved our two night stay!

Many wonderful sightings and experiences. Spacious, tastefully decorated and very comfortable accommodation. High quality linen, bath towels and bathrobes were additional touches which amplified the luxury. Nothing was too much for the lodge management and staff - they were completely focused on guest satisfaction and experience. The food far exceeded that which I have had in many other lodges in the past. Knowledgeable rangers and guides ensured memorable game experiences.

My experience was excellent, overwhelming and everything is so beautiful here. This was the best experience I have ever had in my life. We are leaving with very fond memories. The food is marvelous and they take care of you 24 hours a day with personal attention, presence, patience and care. I have never had an experience like this. This is a place that the world should get to know. The food is indescribable and all the attention they give to it is un-explainable in words.

The detail that goes into ensuring that you have a lovely stay is second to none. The Ndlovu chalet has a modern rustic safari theme, it was beautiful. The whole estate is off-grid and eco-friendly, the perfect setting to get away from city life. The staff were friendly and always tried to ensure that we were comfortable and everything was to our liking. The meals were especially delicious. Ian has amazing knowledge of the bushveld, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We stayed at the "Honeymoon" Camp and was blown away by the reception, food and facilities. They cater to your every need and make sure they know what you like, dislike and even your favorite animal. You even get updated with posts before your stay. One tip is to try and get there in daylight as the road is a bit tricky and you easily miss the off turn. You will then also have more time to relax and enjoy the bush experience. All in all we had a wonderful experience and would definitely return.

Our son got married in this amazingly peaceful place. The lodges are stunning and you are treated like royalty. Such a special place and very special owners. They go the extra mile to ensure your stay is very special. The catering is first class and the game drives are amazing. Mr Smith has such knowledge of the bush which he loves to pass on to his guests. All in all truly first class and would highly recommend this beautiful place.

The level of detail was amazing, they understood everything we wanted to achieve and just made it all happen. We had our own game ranger, chef, housekeeper, every last detail was thought about and it was as if staff just popped up when we wanted anything! We would watch the sunset against the stunning Drakensberg mountains, with big game coming to drink at the waterhole. It was spectacular to look up to see the Milky Way above us! We could not have wished for a more magical place.

With only 2 rooms this is the epitome of exclusivity. Uncluttered and open, your connection with Nature (and the impressive Drakensberg Escarpment) is not impeded by the infrastructure. There is a natural flow between camp and the surrounding bush and unwinding here is unavoidable. The only thing exceeding the vast expanse of the skies over Nyumbani, is the hospitality of its staff. Highly recommend this for that private getaway to connect with each other and nature!
