"Hugely hospitable staff. Amazing variety of wildlife. Sundowner surprise and food was wonderful. Must be one of SA’s best kept secrets – especially for young families!" - The Drews, Emmetts and Jays
Kids @ Ndaka
As any safari-goer knows, the chance to experience Africa ignites a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world unlike any other. For parents, this is something you’d naturally like to share with your children. With many lodges catering exclusively or predominantly for adults, many children miss out on the chance to go on safari with their parents.
At Ndaka Safari Lodge, our guest-centred approach extends fully to children. Our fenced-in indigenous garden and lodge facilities are an African wonderland for kids, offering a spacious sanctuary in which to roam, explore, and enjoy a range of exciting outdoor activities.
Ndaka Safari Lodge pulls out all the stops to create memorable safari holidays for the entire family. To young minds, there is a world of natural marvels to discover and you’ll love experiencing the bush, bugs, and wildlife through their eyes. There is a host of activities and facilities for kids including a safari playground, grassed area for sports, pool with a beach for kids of all ages, and board games for cold days and quiet times.
Game drives are a central part of any safari and children 4 years and under are welcome. Car seats are provided for younger children and our experienced field guides are at the helm to ensure utmost safety and enjoyment, following a code of conduct so as not to interfere with the game-viewing experience of other guests. With activity books to fill out and game drives tailored to suit the age, interest, and make-up of guests on the vehicle, the game drives at Ndaka Safari Lodge are focused on providing a memorable introduction to African wildlife.
The lodge and safari tents offer homely, luxurious accommodation with single beds or camp cots for kids (no mattresses on the floor) – an idyllic space to look out over the views of the reserve in comfort. The fire pit is perfect for roasting marshmallows and recapping the stories of the day after a delicious meal. From the excitement of game drives and learning about the natural world to playing in the pool or on the jungle gym, there is an assortment of wonderful childhood memories to be made at Ndaka Safari Lodge.
