"Had a great time, everything at the lodge exceeded our expectations." - Gavin & Pam, Hillcrest
At Ndaka Safari Lodge you can be sure of game drives that will live up to your imagination! You have an excellent chance of close encounters with the Big 5 and keen birdwatchers will also be treated to over 260 bird species (although the birders suspect that there are well over 300 species!).
Nambiti Private Game Reserve landscape
There are two game drives per day (the timing of which depends on the seasons), during which our experienced guides will share their knowledge and love of the African bush with you. Each drive lasts about three hours.
The morning game drive normally leaves between 5:30am and 6am. Our guides will find a spot where you can enjoy the stunning views, whilst enjoying your hot coffee or hot chocolate.
The afternoon game drive leaves between 3:30pm and 4pm. After sundowners and snacks, our guides will use the spotlight to find nocturnal animals, before returning to the lodge for dinner.
Game drives have access to the entire 21 000 acres that make up the Nambiti Private Game Reserve and strict vehicle limits at animal sightings ensure an exclusive game viewing experience. Guides are also in constant radio contact with each other keeping track of animal movements.
POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN ON GAME DRIVES
With us being a child-friendly establishment, children aged 4 years and younger are welcome to join us on our game drives. We do have car seats available for younger children. We do however encourage parents to be sensitive and aware of the sometimes unpredictable behaviour of the wild animals. Please carefully consider the safety and comfort of your children especially those under the age of 2 years. Please note that generally, these drives will not be allowed within 50 meters of a Big 5 sighting - however this is at the sole discretion of the ranger at the time of the sighting. We will do our best to accommodate guests with children of similar ages together on game viewers but in the event of this not being possible, then parents are requested to be considerate of other guests also enjoying their experience in the bush. Children must remain quiet on drives so as to not inconvenience other guests on the vehicle as well as other guests on other game drives. Any unacceptable behaviour cannot be tolerated and may result in the game drive returning to the lodge and then continuing without these children and their parents.
