Went for three nights and had the best Safari experience! Prince was a great driver and tour guide. We saw all of the big 5 multiple times and got up close and personal with some of the big cats! The ladies in the kitchen cooked some fantastic meals. If you want to have a great viewing of Africa's wildlife, then this is the place to be! The large canvas tents added a unique experience, but had bug nets and a bathroom attached. it was very quite at night, and if there are no clouds, the stars are amazing. We could even had a few lions roaring in the distance! As we went on to other accommodations after, the wildlife viewing did not compare to our safari experience we had with Prince.
When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by Charlotte and Daphne. The tents are luxury and have a bathroom with a hot shower and a toilet. Ndzhaka tented camp is located near a small lake where a lot of wildlife is drinking from the water. The camp has no fences so the wildlife can also be spotted inside the camp. We saw an elephant walking in our backyard! Lunch, dinner and breakfast are cooked well and they have enough vegetarian options. You eat together with other guests, which was a great wat to get to know each other. In the evening, there was a nice campfire. The gamedrives are an experience and our guides Prince and Bongani are really cool! In the morning it can be quite cold so make sure you bring a warm jacket. Earplugs at night could be useful because of the sound of the animals. It is quite expensive, but worth every penny. Highly recommended to stay here one or two nights!…
We stayed for two nights in this simple, beautifully located camp in Manyeleti reserve and for us it was just perfect - we got up close with the Big 5 and many other animals on our drives, the food was great and the staff (guide and ladies in the camp) were nice and competent. The camp is unfenced, so you can even see animals in the camp. Do not expect luxury, everything is quite simple, but for nature lovers it is a great choice and we can defitely recommend a stay there!
We had selected Ndzhaka for our first safari experience based on good reviews and an attractive price. We were not disappointed. The Manyeleti reserve offered a wide variety of animals and no crowded areas. The team in place to take care of us was great. Our guide, Prince, is very knowledgeable, experienced and very friendly. In the three days we were on site, he was able to show us everything we hoped for and more. No promises upfront, as all this is unpredictable, but a commitment to make all efforts to find the nice experience that makes the difference. The camp itself is nice, the tents are comfortable and the food was surprisingly good, better than expected. We definitely recommend for those that want a more affordable way to experience game drives around Kruger.
We spent 3 nights in Ndzhaka, just amazing!!!! The lodge is very comfortable, there are no fences so animals walk around all day, elephants, hyenas and nyalas visited the lodge. The food is very nice and the staff are really friendly. We saw the big 5 in 3 days, lions eating a giraffe, a leopard eating an impala............. At night you can hear the lions roaring , elephants trumpeting.......amazing. If you like nature ....Ndzhaka is the place to stay. Thanks Prince, Fani and all the staff for everything. Hope to come back soon.
