Having travelled the world, stayed in some wonderful locations, one of the most important characteristics of a great place is the feeling of belonging, which Ndaka always provides, from the greeting at the gate to Graeme our ranger, Fana (front of house manager), Kate (GM), Mark (Owner), the wonderful dinning staff and all the behind the scene staff.

This was our third visit to Ndaka. Each visit has been terrific. This time we stayed in one of the'tents' which was quite palatial. Our ranger was lovely and very knowledgeable. We had a family reunion at Ndaka and it provided a comfortable and interesting venue. We can't wait to go back.
