There’s an innate quality inside all of us that makes us feel fulfilled when we’re in nature. Ndaka Safari Lodge owners Mark and Tracey Marshall believe that every child deserves to experience the wonder and excitement of the African bush.
Ndaka was created to offer memorable holidays in the wilderness for families travelling with children.
This comment from a guest captures it all: “This has to go down as the boys’ most awesome experience; my eldest has moved from cartoons to watching Nat Geo Wild now.“
7 reasons why Ndaka is a family favourite
Kids at Ndaka get top-notch treatment, with their own fluffy animals or activity books to take home, and so much more!
Comfy accommodation with a choice of single beds or camp cots (no mattresses on the floor!).
We serve kid-friendly meals to keep little tummies happy.
Hours of adventure to be had – with game drives, swimming, bass fishing (seasonal), board games, a jungle gym and playground, indoor playroom, outdoor garden games and a lawn to play soccer.
A huge, fenced-in indigenous garden to let imaginations run wild.
We have a TV, but it’s rarely used.
A focus on friendliness and FUN!
Parents, come appreciate the bush through your children’s eyes, in all its wonder, novelty, surprises and splendour.
Children and game drives
Children of all ages are welcome to join us on our game drives. We have car seats available for children aged three and younger. However, we encourage parents to be sensitive and aware of the sometimes unpredictable behaviour of the wild animals (your own children may or may not be included in this description!)
Please carefully consider the safety and comfort of your children, especially those under the age of two years. Generally, drives with young children will not be allowed within 50 metres of a Big 5 sighting – however, this is at the sole discretion of the guide 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, parents are requested to be considerate of other guests also enjoying their experience in the bush. Children must remain quiet on drives to avoid inconveniencing 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.
