  • Bruce, Judy, Justin and Sabre. I am so sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have no excuse. However, I do want to thank you for the wonderful experience I had while at your place. Your place had to be the highlight of the trip. And thank you for making the cake for my birthday. That was so nice. Also thank you to Justin and Sabre for giving up their Sunday. By now you have probably forgotten who I am. Hello to mamasinna (?spelling) and Thankyou for all the good food. Did your son ever get his papers he needed? Should have stayed in Africa-we've had no spring and its pouring today. Looks like we may not even get a summer. No point in complaining-BUT. Also enjoyed the talks you did in the evenings around the fire. Once again thank you so much.. Regards Linda Lamb

Testimonials

Our family has booked a 3 nights’ safari with Bruce and Judy and will remember if for many years.
Thanks to the patience and expertise of Bruce we have seen the big five, discussed (by eyes !) with 8 lions during 20 minutes, watch beautiful groups of elephants besides the river and so many other great moments in another dimension. Back to the lodge, Judy welcomed us with a truly family atmosphere.
We hope other people will have the same chance to spend a safari with them.
We wish Bruce and Judy good luck in their daily meetings with Kruger animals.

Thank you more particularly for arranging my trip to nDzuti, at such short notice and against all the odds of stolen passport and therefore also no currency exchange! I did so appreciate the utter trust you placed in me when you paid for the entire trip yourself! I hope you did not have a sleepless night!

In recommending nDzuti I think you interpreted my wishes exactly! The style of the place suited me perfectly and it was the most marvellous experience.
The facilities, as you will have found, were fairly basic but quite adequate for a comfortable stay. Brett and Sherie were welcoming and hospitable.
Sherie supplied plenty of nourishing food for breakfast, lunch and supper in a friendly, homely fashion. Brett was a great guide on our safari drives.

The lodge was full for the first night, including a lively and talkative family group, but when they departed midday on Monday it was then calm and peaceful, with just a young couple and myself, and it was a real joy to be in the midst of the vastness of the bush with no other people within sight or sound! The wildlife, apart from fairly ubiquitous impala, was somewhat scarce (not that I have any measure of experience to go by!) but I liked the feeling that there was no guarantee of seeing game that was free to roam far and wide. Sometimes fleeting glimpses were all the more exciting for being so brief! We did get very good viewings as well!

On the first evening we saw quite a wide range of wildlife, including a close-up of a very large rhino who was not in any hurry! On the way home in the dark we came across a lioness with two 6 week old cubs (what a great guide we had!). I was amazed how unperturbed she was by our presence and was moving in a very leisurely way, so we had extremely good viewing. Brett found them again the following evening, just as relaxed, with the cubs playing within yards of the landrover - fantastic! Talking of lions, that same evening, as we relaxed after supper, Brett heard a couple of lions roaring some distance away and said "Let's go and find them!" - so he did, and in the spotlight we saw two fine males unhurriedly patrolling their territory. Again they were totally unfazed by our presence, stopping for a scratch and a lie down. While the lights were turned off to conserve batteries, a roar from a far distant lion prompted a response from our two, and their roaring just a few yards from us in the darkness was a spine-tingling experience!

We spent some time tracking a leopard which was stalking impala and which Brett was determined to find, but we had to be content with leopard tracks!
Elephant were unusually elusive and it was only on the final morning that Brett located a fine 25 year old male after hearing a solitary trumpet from across the river, so I did see all the big five except the leopard.
Together with sightings of many other mammals, birds and reptiles as well as the bush, the scenery and stunning panoramic views it was a wonderful and memorable safari trip!

Some people might want slightly more sophisticated accommodation and cuisine but the style of nDzuti in the hands of Brett and Sherie suited me very well.

With many thanks for your excellent arrangements of my safari trip, best wishes, Gervase.

I recently returned from my first Safari experience in South Africa. Not only did the Ndtuzi camp experience meet every expectation I had, but it far surpassed them! I give my highest recommendation to anyone seeking a comfortable and exhilarating safari wishing to see a host of animals (including the big 5) and birds with a truly knowledgeable and genuinely caring staff. Brett, Sherie, Don, Bruce and the staff could not have been more accommodating and professional throughout the entire 5 day Safari and stay at Ndtuzi. The vast knowledge of every animal, bird and plant that our guide Brett presented was only surpassed by his ability to track them down. The landscape allowed for breathtaking views high above rivers and made for some amazing photo opportunities. Getting close to the animals was an absolute thrill and a feeling that I will remember for a long time to come. I will not soon forget the elephants, lions, wildebeests, rhinos, giraffes, cape buffalo, antelope, water buck, hippos, zebras, and birds too numerous to count that we encountered during our safari. We loved it so much that we decided to extend our trip an extra day, just so we didn't miss a thing. Sherie made delicious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner that gave the experience a wonderful touch of home cooking. The entire experience was made even better by the comfortable atmosphere and friendships that we developed with our guide Brett and cook Sherie; I could not imagine that a better Safari experience is possible than my experience at Ndzuti, an experience of a lifetime and one that I will always cherish!

Hi Sherie and Brett,
Hope you are keeping well and the camp is getting busier by the day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both for a fantastic Easter weekend at nDzuti, we had a fantastic time and would highly recommend it to anyone needing to escape the city and relax. We still talk about the rhino that Brett chased and the lioness with the baby cubs. We will definitely be seeing you guys again, maybe sooner than later!!
Thanks again for your hospitality

I did not plan to stay with Judie and Bruce but i think that this was the best part of my journey. Sometimes you do meet people in your life where you do have a good vibe with. It is unbelievable that you can have that kind of connection after a couple of hours.
They help you out if you need their help, the give you the right advice if you ask for it. They are very professional in what they do and there heart is on the right place. I learnt a lot about the bush, there are so knowledgeable and i spent one year in the bush before i met them.
I did not spend only that first night at there place. I have been back twice to spend more time with them. I hope to keep in touch with them for a long time. I will be a visitor again when i will visit them but it feels as a member of the family.
