Bush and Mountain Retreat – the ideal combination of the bush and the berg for an unforgettable Hosted Retirement Retreat. Your first 2 nights will be spent in the Nambiti Big 5 Game Reserve and the next 2 nights in the Drakensberg.

Nestled in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields, the Nambiti Reserve and Springbok Lodge offer guests a chance to unwind in a picture-perfect setting in a conservancy offering 22 000 acres of pristine, Malaria-free bushveld. The Springbok Lodge epitomises the perfect safari experience with beautifully appointed tented suites, service excellence, superb cuisine and prolific wildlife.

Nestled in a tranquil and secluded valley in the heart of the Drakensberg lies Cathedral Peak Hotel, providing premier accommodation and entertainment surrounded by the magnificent peaks of some of the World Heritage Site’s most impressive and iconic mountains. With a wide array of facilities and activities, there is a diversity of entertainment.

“10/10 for Africa Memories Travel – the care and attention shown all the time to each one of the group. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and was like travelling with a daughter. 10/10 for our careful driver and attention to the needs of his passengers. 10/10 to our guide who must be the best guide of all – her knowledge and humour were super and pays attention to detail” Bridget
