The Team

Meet the people who know your name and will make sure that you feel right at home from the start.

Lodge Owners

Owner-operators, Mark & Tracey Marshall, make the magic happen with Team Ndaka.

Co-Lodge Managers

Nolan Armstrong  & Siya Kheswa are our Co-Lodge Managers. They are hands-on and responsible for the day-to-day running of Ndaka ensuring that our guests & Team Ndaka have a great day.


Our exceptional guiding team is well-trained and knowledgeable; but watch out, they also enjoy a good laugh and they’re always up for a prank!

Siya, Nolan, Hayden, Luke, Dylan, Amon, David, Hala & Lisa develop lasting relationships with guests young and old while out on game drives as well as back at camp.


Sandile, Kwanele, Thando & Nompilo are always happy to assist with any enquiries regarding reservations.


Pam assists our reservations team while also fulfilling a vital administrative role “behind the scenes” with Tracey.

Front of House & Guest Services

Fana, together with Gugu, Pretty, Bongwe, Lucky, and Thandeka, take price in seeing to your every need while you’re at the lodge. Lisa is the glue holding the departments together.


Olgah and our inspired team of chefs – Princess, Kwazi, Given, Loveness and Thabisile – will surprise your senses with superb Safari Cuisine. Tell that diet to be quiet!


Neil and Sandile together with Shakes and Phumlani, are very proactive and keep our buildings, vehicles, plumbing and much, much more in check.


Our father and sons team of Nathi, Zama and Sabelo have enviably green fingers, keeping our gardens gorgeous and producing the fresh goods from our veggie garden.


Shakes is the cheery face you see doing the Lodge shopping and collecting deliveries and luggage from the car park.


Zanele and the housekeeping team of Zama, Zandile, Pinky, Winnie, Phiwa and Welile work their magic in the scullery and ensure that our guests feel at home in the comfort of their suites.
