Kruger National Park, South Africa

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

While this property is a bit larger than our ideal, we only get great feedback on its experience. Because it is located on its own concession within Kruger National Park, you are not likely to run into other vehicles. &Beyond does a great job with conservation and wildlife management. Ngala Safari Lodge offers a very comfortable, permanent style accommodations.

The magic and mystery of Africa comes alive in the welcoming ambiance of the elegant Ngala Safari Lodge. This timeless and charming safari lodge is ideally positioned in Ngala Private Game Reserve, a private concession inside the highly acclaimed Timbavati Reserve within Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuary, and one of the biggest game reserves in the world.

Tucked under a canopy of mopane and tamboti trees, Ngala Safari Lodge boasts 20 Classic Thatched Cottages, including three Family Cottages with interleading rooms, and the spacious Family Suite. Each en-suite cottage exudes a romantic ambiance with nostalgic safari memorabilia throughout. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows make the most of sunny safari days and a private veranda offers the perfect setting for private dinners. The gracious Family Suite accommodates four guests and includes a private swimming pool and the use of a private vehicle.

A sparkling swimming pool and sundeck overlook a natural riverine woodland, ideal for avid birdwatchers, while a tranquil massage sala and a well-equipped fitness room can be enjoyed in between game drives. Evening dinners are set in the elegant candlelit courtyard or an African feast in the open-air traditional boma. Enjoy a variety of activities such as twice-daily game drives with intimate wildlife encounters, interpretive bush walks, tracking and photographic safaris and conservation experiences including rhino notching.
