We stayed at the lodge a little over a week ago and still miss being there. The experience was exceptional for both the adult and child. From being pampered with a hot water bottle and blanket on the morning drive, a cocktail at sunset in the bush and seeing the Big Five in the first day gives you an idea...

We were delighted with the newly renovated facilities and great service and viewing. We saw all of the big five within a day of arriving and it still got better! The picks were: - the elephants coming up to infinity pool and drinking from a few metres away; - the special endangered dogs viewing and wandering around the viewing vehicle...

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you are treated like a king. The staff all know your name and are so friendly. The food is amazing. The one down side is the views from the lodge and rooms is lacking- if it were not for this the lodge would get all 5 stars. BUT, the game...

We stayed at Ngala for 3 nights for our honeymoon, and it was our first safari experience. From the moment we set foot on the property we felt like in a dream, where everything and everyone is just perfect, and a pack of elephants were having a drink from the watering hole in front of the swimming pool. What a...

My wife and i stayed at Ngala for four nights having just spent three with a more rustic camp called Rhino Post Safari. We were picked up by Andre (Dr Dre) from the airport and from the first moment his enthusiasm and humour came shining through and we could tell that we would get on really well. The camp itself...

Great stay to remember in the refurbished camp! Really wild corner of South Africa which is part of the greater Kruger National Park but without the crowds. Tourism here is managed by the premier tourism company in Southern Africa, &Beyond!

Based on my visit to Ngala and Kirkman's Kamp, I'm convinced you cannot go wrong with an &Beyond lodge. Like at Kirkman's, we had a marvelous time at Ngala. We were greeted by a family of warthogs on the lawn next to the dining pavilion then watched a vervet monkey steal some bananas. It's the real deal, y'all. Five stars...

This is one of the most unforgettable trip that I have ever taken. It was in June 2014. I stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed every moment. Game drives were excellent, and I saw big 5 due to diligence of guide Jabin. The room (cottage) was excellent, with moderately fast WiFi in my room. Food was excellent, may be...

There's not a moment to waste savoring the animals, the food, the sunrise/sunset at Ngala. I've been to many camps before, but Ngala was near the very top. Great guides, great location, incredible wildlife. Never been so close to leopards. And NO crowds. Room to roam. 1000% recommended. Would go back again in a heartbeat!

Highly recommend this safari lodge. Recommend the month of May. Service was fantastic and the safaris were exhilarating. I discovered Amarula liquor (South African) which was in our coffees on the morning safaris. I came back home and have been drinking it ever since and turning everyone I know onto it. (Not everyday...it's alcohol). Back to the safari! What a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The romance and mystery of Africa come alive in 20 thatched cottages tucked under a dense canopy of tamboti trees at Ngala Safari Lodge. Exuding classical safari charm, the spacious veranda, with its wonderfully comfortable armchairs, looks out onto a popular waterhole. For pure indulgence, the Safari Suite offers an elegant sitting room, private swimming pool and exclusive use of a safari vehicle. Mouth-watering meals are served in the shade of an enormous weeping boerbean tree, while a large swimming pool lies on the edge of thick riverine woodland. ... more   less
