Mango Opinion

Ngala Tented camp is a fantastic option for those seeking a bit of quirky luxury while enjoying some great game viewing in Kruger National Park, South Africa. With it own prvate area guests can explore the reserve on foot, free from the constraints of roads and vehicles, go on a night drives, or sensitively go off-road enabling you to get close up photos of the adundant wildife.

Nestled between the dense riverine forest and the sandy bed of the Timbavati in the unspoiled Ngala Private Game Reserve, lies Ngala Tented Camp, a sophisticated tented camp perfectly positioned in tranquil bush surrounds. Ngala shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuary.

Chic and contemporary, Ngala Tented Camp comprises just nine intimate and luxurious tented suites set on raised platforms and cleverly designed to blend into the riverside trees, minimizing the impact on the environment. Each tented suite has an en-suite bathroom, swirling overhead fan, air conditioning, outdoor showers, snug electric blankets for winter and private wooden decks.

Mature indigenous trees form a cool canopy overhead and elegant guest areas overlook the seasonal Timbavati River. The camp’s lap pool, which follows the contours of the riverbank is perfect for afternoon game viewing, while a massage sala overlooking the streaming river is the ideal spot to unwind. The food at Ngala is as individual and inventive as the camp itself. Private lunch platters are savoured on the viewing decks, at the poolside or on the lush lawn. Theatrical al fresco dinners in the dry riverbed are simply unforgettable. 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.
