Garth April will start at flyhalf in what will be his third consecutive Super Rugby game in the Sharks No 10 jersey.
Also making a return is captain Beast Mtawarira, who was rested for last week’s game against the Chiefs.
Lambie’s return means that Joe Pietersen drops out of the match-day 23.
Saturday’s clash at Kings Park is scheduled for 15:00.
