We have been to this lodge quite a few times and we always have a wonderful time. Dennis the manager is excellent and makes you feel at home. The game viewing was excellent and the luxurious tents are very comfortable especially now they have changed the chairs on the tents decks to much more comfortable ones. Dumi the chef went...

Ngala Tented Camp had it all. We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon and it exceeded our lofty expectations. The lodge itself is nicely spaced out allowing each cabin to enjoy a feeling of privacy. The cabins are well appointed with beautiful indoor bathtubs and outdoor showers. Our balcony had a lovely view of the riverbed and along...

Ngala Tented Camp was our second andBeyond property during our five night safari, having stayed at Exeter River Lodge for two nights prior. It was a nice change of pace to be in the tented rooms, which were very well done and felt quite luxurious. Why not five stars? The tents on the website all feel private, with a river...

We spent 4 nights at Ngala tented camp on our recent South African adventure. We had 3 nights at Ulusaba Rock Lodge in the Sabi Sands, then 4 nights at Ngala. It was simply magical. Game Rides: Scott was our Ranger, Ernest our Tracker. Both were excellent. After our experience at Ulusaba ( which was really good too) we appreciated...

What a fabulous start to our safari. Everything was more than perfect. Service was personalised, chef Dumi turned out some delicious meals (best Peri Peri sauce). Afternoon Bloody Mary was hard to beat. Luxury tents equipped with everything we needed & a well stocked complimentary bar. What a pity we could not spend our entire safari here. Due to high...

Had tried to book this destination in the past but it was never available. Tried once again in February and found three nights open in October so immediately booked it.

What an amazing stay at Ngala Tented Camp! My wife and I spent our honeymoon in South Africa and were recommended two different locations for game drives. Both were spectacular, but Ngala really won me over. The staff was amazing, and there was literally not a thing that I would change in our stay. As others have mentioned, game drives...

Firstly you are warned to travel light due to the capacity on the small planes. There is no need to bring extra clothes for the evening as the Rangers radio ahead to say you're nearly back and you roll off the jeep into the social bar area and dinner is nearly ready. The tents are truly wonderful with comfortable beds,...

Ngala Tented Camp is one of two properties on the Ngala private reserve west of Kruger in South Africa. This is a tent, but a very nice one that has complete electricity and running water and even air conditioning. In months when temperatures don't go much beyond 90 degrees F you can expect to be comfortable even during the day,...
