Start planning your safari, an adventure, a trip of a lifetime!
We are here to help you customise your time here at Nsele.

Planning a safari can be a fun experience, but there are many things to consider when planning one, especially if it’s your first time. Some places are remote and the roads can be long, so you need to plan it out carefully with flights, the choice of car hire or airport transfer.We recommend letting Nsele do that for you!We can take care of your whole holiday! We are more than willing to collect you from the airport and then drop you back off.Whether you’re planning a family holiday, a group trip, a company bosberaad or a romantic getaway, we have you covered.

“If there were one more thing I could do, it would be to go on a big 5 safari holiday once again.” – Karen Blixen

The iconic Big Five – the lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and buffalo – is the highlight of every safari. Catching a glimpse of these animals in their natural wild habitat is becoming a privilege experience. It's sad that many wildlife species are decreasing in numbers due to habitat destruction and becoming the target of poachers. On a Kruger National Park Big 5 safari game drive, you will be guided by one of our trained rangers and experience wildlife interactions like no other. We highly recommend booking the Big 5 Game Drive!

Nsele offers unforgettable spaces made for memorable celebrations.
Our function spaces can accommodate 15 to 25 guests indoors and up to 35 guest outdoors.
We will be able available to assist you in planning your exceptional event,
