Visitors to Ndumo have the opportunity of taking a guided game drive around Nyamithi Pan, an attractive lake fringed with pale fever trees and reedbeds where they will be rewarded with sightings of numerous water birds and the many crocodiles lying on the banks.

The reserve has a mix of vegetation, including acacia savannah, riverine bush, and sand forests, offering additional opportunities to view and enjoy the resident wildlife.
