Camp Ndlovu, has a direct arrangement with a Kosher caterer that delivers lovely pre-made meals to the lodge daily. They can cater all the way up to Chalav Yisrael dairy, and Mehadrin commission meat. Please ensure you make special mention of this level of ingredient, if required on your enquiry form. 

This incredible reserve has more than 300 kilometres of private safari roads, allowing the lodge to explore large , and interesting eco systems to locate the Big 5. The hilly and scenic terrain is very different to any other reserve in Africa, and hence a great plus point for safari goers wanting endless vistas, incredible sunsets, and close photographic encounters with the wildlife. 

the lodge has 5 exclusive suites, with private plunge pools, overlooking the river course, and 

the main lodge area directly overlooks a waterhole, which is regularly visited by elephant, lion, antelope and even leopard.  Its a haven of tranquility, awesome setting for a private , upmarket lodge experience, which is as good a safari, as any other safari in South Africa, and it offers the added benefit of being in a malaria free area, and a lot less travel time from Johannesburg than other more distant safari experiences.
