Charlotte Overend

Student

It is incredible! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. It was such a familiar feeling staying at Namibiti, all the staff were so friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. The guides where so informative and really interested in what we wanted to learn as well as giving us a educational experience. I could not recommend enough and I am counting down the days until I can go back.

Nicole Cochran

Student

Nambiti was amazing, the staff were lovely and really caring. I really loved the fact our days were fulfilled; we were constantly out. I enjoyed going out on the jeep and seeing the elephants and rhinos. I enjoyed going on the walks and doing camp maintenance. My favourite part was going and seeing the children and donating to them.

Vincent Taylor

Student

Nambiti widened my view on how animals act within the wild and taught me so much that I didn’t know before, it was a great camp and in general was an amazing experience.

Caitlin Pearson

Student

While at Nambiti Game Reserve, we were able to take part in many activities. We even got to help track down two male Lions for them to be moved reserves. The guards took it upon themselves to give us all the facts and knowledge about what we were doing so we knew why we were doing this and how it helps. The food we were made by the camp chef allowed us to try new foods out of our comfort zones so we were really able to embrace the South African culture.

Kieran Sherwood

Student

Having gone to Nambiti my experiences where as wild as you can get. The activities that we all participated in where nothing short of spectacular. I must thank Lundy and Bronwyn for allowing us all to participate in what was an unbelievable experience over those 11 days in the bush, definitely going back sometime on my own. Everyone there reminded me where I feel most at home...THE WILD!!

Rabiah Khan

Student

Staying at the Nambiti research camp was a once in a lifetime experience. While at the campsite, it never seemed awkward or boring as everyone felt like a big family and it was great to be able to play games and talk with not only our classmates but also the guides and rangers. Lundy and Erik were two of my favourite people at the camp, they were friendly, funny and extremely interesting as they shared their own stories on living in Africa which gave me a different insight to how life goes on outside the reserve and in the villages.

Stephane Robertson

Staff

Nambiti Research were fantastic hosts for our animal management students, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the moment we arrived. Staff became friends and students have continuously spoken highly of their time and memories from camp. A huge thank you to all those involved in the project who made our time an unforgettable experience.

Rebecca Grey

Staff

Nambiti was incredible experience! Living in such an innovatively sustainable camp felt both ethical and at one with nature; waking up to the sunrise, falling asleep to the sound of wildlife, all whilst being safe and nurtured by the incredible team. The cooks were so talented and diverse, the guides experienced and passionate, and the animals mesmerizing. Can't wait to go back!
