Ndzhaka Safaris

Guests may use their car to explore the bushveld and drive on the main gravel roads. These gravel roads are about 75km in extent and are in decent condition to drive on in a small vehicle. The two-track roads in reserve are used by the safari drive vehicles of the reserve's camps and lodges.

Guided safari drives are available and can be booked during which travellers enjoy close encounters with the 'Big 5' and other animals who are home in this area of South Africa. The game rangers share their in-depth knowledge of the local wildlife, flora and fauna.


  • Self-drive in own car
  • Guided safari drives with a professional ranger.


This no-thrills adventure camp lies hidden in the dense riverine forest on the banks of the seasonal N’waswitsontso riverbed. Situated in proximity to the main dam of the reserve, guests enjoy viewing the herds of elephants and buffaloes. An abundance of wildlife surrounds the camp as animals move to and from the dam to quench their thirst. Besides nyalas, the big game is also often seen in the thick bush surrounding the camp.
