Sindisiwe

Head Chef

We are super excited to introduce our new chef,  Sindi! She has fitted in so well at Qambathi and with our team we feel like she has always been a part of the family. Her recipes are already legendary and we had most wonderful feedback about her talent for cooking from our guests.

Mendoza

 Junior Assistant Manager

(& Wine Master)

Mendoza is such a special soul at Qambathi. He walked down our driveway looking for work a couple of days after we took over the lodge and his smile and sincerity quickly crawled into our hearts. Mendoza very quickly progressed from gardener through general assistant to front of house and now he is our brand new assistant Manager,  whilst still our front of house.... oh and Mendoza is still our wine expert. Make sure you ask for the details of what has grown to be know as “Mandoza story” next time you stay at Qambathi.

Nhlanhlo

General Assistant 

Nhlanhlo is definitely a Magic Maker at Qambathi. If you ever wondered who set up your room so beautifully for your romantic arrival or who is a master at romantic turndown look no further! Nhlanhlo also known as Shosho for those of us who struggle with our Zulu pronunciation is also an assistant to the chef- but we do keep her away from the chilli as she grew up in Durban and sometimes thinks we can all take the heat.
