The Homestead's Impact

Our selection of luxurious private villas are well-suited for celebrity retreats, romantic getaways, family adventures or peaceful solo hideaways, featuring outdoor showers, private infinity pools and skylights to view the African night sky. As a zero-impact lodge, every element, both big and small, effortlessly combines luxury and sustainability, from our state-of-the-art electric Land Cruisers to solar panels which help power the lodge.  The Homestead will be a conscious luxury lodge, on the one hand offering you a truly unparalleled and opulent experience but balancing that with a corporate social responsibility (CSR), outreach and schools strategy, which will focus on not only helping the local community but will aim to ‘bring the reserve’ to inner-city schools and disadvantaged young people to allow them experience the wonder of Nambiti and help them understand their ability to make a positive impact on the world around.
