We spent 4 days at Ngala Safari Lodge in the family suite, which was comprised of two bedrooms, two very large and beautiful bathrooms, and a small dining room/bar area. In addition, our suite included a private pool. The accommodations were very luxurious, and service was impeccable. Our ranger, Dyke, was wonderful, incredibly knowledgeable and enjoyable to be with.

This is a small bungalow based first class hotel. Each bungalow has a queen sized bed, two chairs, table and sufficient space for luggage. The eating and bar area is in classic British african style. The food is good and the service excellent. There is a water hole for wild animals next to the lodge which adds to the value... More

We spent 5 days at the Ngala Safari lodge going on 2 drives per day. One in the very early morning and the second in late afternoon. For the rest of the day it is too hot. Our ranger Bernard and tracker Wiseman were absolutely fabulous. They both have an excellent knowledge of nature and its wildlife. Animal behaviour, freshness... More

Dear Janine, I have never been involved with a company so aptly named! Our trip was &Beyond. What an incredible country, so much beauty, history, culture… It is probably the first time I’ve ever been on vacation that I felt like I was getting more than I bargained for. Our time at Ngala was priceless. We completely lucked out when... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
