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!
Ndaka Safari Lodge is your family’s relaxed, “home away from home”, your escape from the hustle and bustle. Sitting on the deck enjoying a light lunch, you’ll be surrounded by soothing sounds of the African bush as you look onto a peaceful vista dotted with passing game.
The open plan lapa with the lounge, dining area and well-stocked honesty bar, the relaxing wrap-around deck and rim-flow pool, the wood-fired pizza oven and fully-fenced indigenous garden with a kids playground overlooking the surrounding bushveld make Ndaka Safari Lodge the ideal getaway for families and friends.
Ndaka is a place where people reunite – not only those who haven’t seen each other in a while, but also those who see each other every day and never get the chance to truly connect. It’s a place where every day is Sunday, and a place where unforgettable family memories are made, time and time again.
There’s also free, uncapped, high-speed WiFi and a back-up generator.
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.

The tasteful, comfortable accommodation options at Ndaka Safari Lodge suit a variety of guests – private enough for couples, large enough for families, and close enough for elderly guests. We often have three generations coming to spend special quality time together.
Seven luxury safari tented suites
Perfect for a couple, or two adults with up to three younger children. These spacious, en-suite safari tents are situated within walking distance of the lapa, reception, pool, and bar. Each suite overlooks the expansive plains of the Reserve and has an open-plan bedroom/lounge, dressing room, full bathroom and an outdoor shower.
Three double luxury safari tented suites
Perfect for two couples or families travelling together, a couple with teenage children, and larger families, with each suite sleeping up to six guests. A little further away from the main lapa, the views of the valley and the dam are worth the walk. These double safari tented suites comprise two full en-suite bedrooms with outdoor showers, two dressing rooms and a shared lounge in the middle.
Three standard lodge rooms
Budget-friendly and located behind the lapa. Cheetah and Elephant (king bed/twin beds with en-suite shower and bath), and for the kids – Rhino (twin beds, bath and en-suite shower). The Elephant and Rhino rooms can be combined into an inter-leading family room.
