Welcome to Ndaka Safari Lodge

We’re open!

Our modern lives are simply too busy, rushing from task to task, we don’t get enough treasured time with family. That’s why owners Mark and Tracey created Ndaka Safari Lodge in the first place – they wanted out from the rat race, and they wanted others to have the opportunity to take some time off too.

Breathe out and let us take care of everything for you. You’re here at Ndaka Safari Lodge, where you’ll feel right at home with nature.

Ndaka Safari Lodge is a fully-catered, truly child-friendly lodge in the Nambiti Big 5 Private Game Reserve. Conveniently located between Johannesburg and Durban, Ndaka is the perfect meeting place for family and friends. Although you can’t choose your family, you can choose Ndaka – it’s kind of the same thing!

COVID-19 Lockdown Update

We are delighted that we are now open for inter-provincial leisure travel! We are of course following all preventative and proactive Covid protocols for the safety of our guests and Team Ndaka.

If you reside outside of South Africa, we look forward to welcoming you as soon as South Africa’s lockdown policy changes and our borders reopen.

Please contact Sandile or Kwanele for any booking enquiries, information on cancellations, or for help planning your future safari.

Until we see you, keep safe and take care.

Unlocked Safari Special

The wild has been waiting for you during lockdown. The bush is the perfect place for a breather and our post-lockdown specials will give you every reason to leave online game drives behind and escape into the landscape. Give the whole family a much-needed change of scenery or meet up with friends when regulations allow.

We know you’re tired of being at home, but nothing beats being at home with nature at Ndaka.

Be welcomed as friends; leave as family
