We had another wonderful stay at this lovely lodge. We had the safari suite which is really comfortable and it has its own pool. The rest of the lodge is now getting a much needed upgrade and will be even more amazing once finished. Ranger Alan and tracker Farnie are fantastic and always make us feel at home and we...

From the moment you arrive there is a warm welcome you are assigned a butler who is always available to cater for your needs. The safari was amazing both our ranger & tracker were very knowledgable and friendly! The lodge itself is just beautiful and wild animals walk freely through the grounds. It has a lovely pool and seating areas...

Upon arrival to the Ngala Safari Lodge, i had reasonably high expectations but the team at Ngala provided a service that was astounding and blew my expectations out of the water. I highly recommended requesting Andre and Joseph, with their extensive knowledge of the national park and its inhabitants was simply amazing. They could track down the big 5 and...

Ngala resort is a beautiful resort in the traditional style, with thatched roofs over the most fantastic room, the ultimate in luxury. Our room had an indoor and an outdoor shower, more room than we knew what the do with and the service was the most attentive non intrusive I have known. The safaris are fantastic and we were lucky...

My husband and arrived at Ngala to a warm, family feeling welcome. Our cottage was lovely with a cozy lodge atmosphere. We arrived on time for lunch and the buffet was amazing!! Then it was game drive time. Nothing prepared me for the excitement of tracking lions, rhinos and leopards and off-roading into the bush to find them. Truly thrilling...

We ended our 21 day South Africa trip by spending 4 nights here. After doing much research to find a Game Rich Safari we discovered highly rated South African Tourism Company on Trip Advisor and dealt with lovely Melissa. She provided us with options according to our wants and was extremely quick to respond to our many questions and worked...

Nice little safari lodge with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The six game rides we did were really exceptional. The ranger and the spotter really were good, so was our butler. The rooms were nice, but bathroom age stared to show. They will be renovated in the coming months. Food was the weakest point in the total experience, abundant but...

I can not say enough positive things about my experience at Ngala. The wild life viewing was excellent and the staff really went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. We sat a watched lion cubs stalking and wrestling one another, watched 2 bull elephants "play fight" (still pretty impressive) and woke 2 rhinos who had been sleeping in...

&BeyondNgala was the second of three game reserves that we visited in South Africa and a step up in accommodation from the first one. While we expected nice, Ngala was more luxurious than anticipated with antique furnishings in a most comfortable room. Attentiveness to needs was over the top as provided via our personal butler, Foster. While the weather was...

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
