See Trip Map
Distance about 20 km.

Leaving Riverwild for Manyeleti Game Reserve, we headed towards Lydenburg to join the R36 and up to Ohrigstad and through the tunnels to Diphuti, where we turned right onto the R531 to Klaserie and Orpen gate. About ten km before Orpen Gate we turned right to the Manyeleti Gate.

After paying our entrance fees, we entered and our wildlife experience began. On the way to Ndzhaka camp you will see a large dam where there's always some animal life. Crocodiles, Hippos, Elephants, Buffaloes, Waterbuck, and many others frequent this dam for their water needs.

Riverwild to Ndzhaka

Ndzhaka Ndzhaka is the ideal place for people who love self-catering and the Big Five experience.

Situated in the Manyeleti Game Reserve, which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park, you have all the advantages of going to the Kruger, with the added advantages of exclusivity and the absence of masses of other tourists who get between you and a peaceful nature experience.

To see animals, one can drive on the main roads with one's own car, while it is easy and affordable to go on a game drive with the guides. One can also go on a game walk in the bush in the company of an armed ranger. Finally, you can see animals while staying in the camp, since the camp is not fenced and wild animals pass through the camp at will, adding to the excitement of camping in truly wild bush.

Accommodation The accommodation at Ndzhaka consists of five luxury tents with beds and mattresses. One has to bring your own bedding, towels, etc.

The tents have a bathroom en-suite and shower water can be heated with a gas stove by you before showering. There is no electricity in the camp, this being a true rustic bush camp. The kitchen facilities are in the lapa near the tents, where you can put your food and drinks in a fridge or two freezers. Water for washing, and drinking is available in the tents and at the lapa.

Cooking is on gas stoves in pots and pans provided by the camp. Cutlery and plates and dishes are also provided. Tables and chairs are provided in the lapa, which also has a large deck under a massive and cool Jackalberry tree enlarging the communal area.

Activities include Bird watching, Game viewing in the camp, game drives (day or night or combined) and game walks.
