Our stay at Nitani has been a memorable one. The combination of a beautiful lodge, funny and interesting and knowledgeable staff members and incredible animals made our stay really great, Thanks

For someone who does neither “the bush” let alone the wild, this has been the most wonderful and relaxing holiday. All the staff have been excellent. One could not ask for more attentive service and all done with such enthusiasm. We shall not forget Nitani nor the friends we’ve made. Thank you all so much!

A real pleasure to stay at Nitani and to witness the river flow! A privilege to visit Shane and Ade and for them to share their incredible lifestyle with us. This truly is a magnificent place in the heart of Africa – we will be back!

This will truly be a most cherished adventure, the setting sun, the animals and the hospitality are all memorable. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime. We can’t remember anywhere that there has been such a personal touch to a vacation as here – we will surely be telling others about this.

Thank you for an extraordinary experience. The lodge is perfectly designed, crafted and decorated down to the smallest detail. The staff are beautifully organized, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. Shane taught us a tremendous amount about the history, fauna, flora etc. A truly unforgettable experience. Thank so much

We had a fantastic time! What a perfect place to start our “African Journey”. A real luxury to have this beautiful lodge. It says a lot about the two of you that all the animals come here in peace and allow themselves to be admired. We have learnt so much from both of you and we are delighted to be able to count you as close friends.

Shane & Ade,
I came to Nitani and found that I was at Eden’s heart and that my friends were its keepers. Thank you so much for your persistent encouragement and patient support of the research into elephants and trees, for all these years. It is immensely gratifying to know that we have convinced at least a few, that a gun is not a particularly suitable tool for custodianship or the planet’s inhabitants, and it is singularly appreciated that the lesson has its origins here.

Many thanks for a unique experience – the aardvark were truly stunning and wonderful to behold in this little piece of paradise. Amazing staff, fabulous (and constant) food and a battering with rocks in the wellness centre has made this a holiday not forgotten in a hurry.

It was great to meet old friends for the first time. Thank you for allowing us to see your special place through your experienced and gentle eyes. You’ve become like family and Nitani is a home that we are always longing to return to.
We love you all

Dear Shane & Ade,
Thanks for giving us a weekend that will stay with us all our lives. Lion, leopard and hyaena, all impressive but the way you and Ade live together was the most impressive and inspirational thing of all.
Hopefully see you back here

This is a wondrous place. We have never experienced a holiday like this. We have been warmly welcomed, tenderly cared for and carefully educated. We have been rested and inspired, stimulated and at peace. We are deeply grateful.

My first trip to Africa has been a brought to a memorable conclusion by my stay at Nitani. What a truly wonderful location and setting. The rooms are beautiful, the staff most welcoming and hospitable and the sights and sounds unforgettable. They say that once visited, the drums of Africa beat on inside one – never a truer saying. Thank you all and I will return one day.

To all the wonderful people at Nitani,
What a splendid lodge and reserve you have! It was all an exhilarating experience to be in the wilds of Africa, in the good company of the Nitani staff. You all made our honeymoon to Africa and extremely and unforgettable experience that will live in our memories forever! We will definitely be back next year.
Lots of love and best wishes

Nitani team,
Nowhere has man, animal and nature come together so perfectly! The harmony and peace will continue in our memory long after we have left. Thank you for the perfect ending to our stay in Botswana.
