Good for game viewing and relaxation. Easy to get to by car from Gauteng. 4 of big 5 in one day, Leopard still outstanding. Plenty of Kudu, Zebra. Never been that close to elephants and some other animals.

The animals are in good condition, very green and lush especially after so much rain - and can recommend Ndaka as THE place to stay

We stayed at Ndaka Safari Lodge. Awesome place. Game viewing in the reserve was spectacular. Saw 4 of Big 5 and a cheetah walked past our vehicle!
