Beautiful, luxurious place, outstandingly skilled guides, extremely friendly staff. Top quality, highly recommended. You won't find a better animal experience anywhere on the planet, and at Ngala you do it in luxury.

What can we say about Ngala? This was our trip of a life time and the Ngala family made it much more than that. It is an experience that will stay with us forever. The people, the food, the accommodation and of course the animals were amazing. Mama Connie looks out for everyone as if they were her own family... More

We got to meet people from Sweden as well as Johannesburg at this camp. Our guide Dyke was an excellent tracker -- we saw leopards several times as well as wild dogs, white rhinos, and (briefly) a black rhino. The accommodations were exceptional -- breakfast in the bush was a highlight.

I always said if I ever get to do a safari I want to stay for at least part of the trip at a luxury camp. Wow, we loved Ngala. Lots of personal attention, even had our own butler, Norman. Food was exceptional. They even surprised us one evening with dinner on our cottage patio, candles, Champaign and all. The... More

For 8 years we've been waiting patiently to go back to South-Africa and enjoy a proper safari experience. The reason....our twins. If there's one thing in the world I wanted them to experience it was a safari. And as soon as they turned 8. We took of. We originally wanted to go to Phinda but as we decided only in... More

We stayed at Ngala safari lodge for 3 nights and it was the most amazing experience. We did not know what to expect since this was our first safari but we were blown away by the whole experience. Firstly we were met by a staff member at the airport and on our way to the lodge we saw so many... More

My husband and I kicked off our honeymoon in South Africa with a 3-night safari here. This was hands down the best part of our honeymoon. The booking experience was smooth, and Jayne took fabulous care of us, answering all my questions. From the moment we landed in Johannesburg, we were taken care of. A guide met us at the... More

My family and I were at Ngala Safari Lodge for 4 nights during the last part of our holiday trip to Africa. Words can not describe the amazing experience that you have from the moment you step foot on Ngala Private Game Reserve and for the rest of your life with the lasting memories. I was originally worried it might... More

This was our first Safari trip and at the last minute we decided to extend our stay from 2 nights to 5 nights. I am so glad we did. We had been advised by friends etc that 2 nights is plenty of time but I disagree. To fully appreciate the environment you need to immerse yourself in the rhythm of... More

I wanted to give my kids the experience of a safari but we all got so much more out of it. We were transferred into a fairytale as from the moment we arrived. We were confronted with a staff that made each single minute at Ngala worth while. We especially fell in love with our ranger Jenni who created the... More
