I'm so glad we stayed here. Beautiful setting and luxury "tents". The staff were all top notch and treated us so well. We definitely felt special. The food was unbelievably delicious (and I came away with a few recipes). We were very fortunate to have Ranger Andrew and Tracker Adam. They take their jobs seriously, know what they are doing,...

The tented camp was beautiful. The trackers and rangers were knowledgeable and friendly. The entire staff goes out of their way to make your trip memorable! There was a variety of food and it was all delicious. Just fabulous all around.

LOVED THIS TENTED LODGE! Fabulous room with spacious area for my daughter and me. Superb cuisine and we loved young Dan our ranger who was a wealth of information on all the animals. Saw wild African dogs and their pups and their den in the base of a tree. Also check out Forest Lodge and Kirkmans Kamp. &Beyond is first... More

Had a great time at Ngala Tented with the missus in June. Safari was well run from the bookings to the transfers all the way to the actual safari itself! Special mention to: Andrew & Adam - truly the ranger & tracker 'A-Team'. African wild dogs, lions, leopards, hungry hippos. Great easygoing people to have on your ride! Richard -... More

My partner and I are seasoned safari travellers but this time we brought my daughter and my niece, who had never been to Africa. We had 4 magical days of great weather, great game viewing, including such rare sightings as wild dogs, african wild cats and civets. Dennis, Dillon, Amos and the entire crew looked after us in impeccable style... More

What were we waiting for!! Ngala Tented Camp has been rebuilt after the floods 3 years ago and what a winner it is. The rooms are huge with everything you could ask for and you would never know you are in a tent. Barney (head ranger) and Giyani (tracker) seeked out the most incredible sightings imaginable. David, our butler, was... More

Beautiful experience from top to bottom. The staff could not have been more helpful, meals were delightful, Richard our butler was on every detail and a pleasure to deal with! The drives were terrific, with Derrick and Jonas, able to search out all exciting game for us to see, very knowledgeable! The tents were fantastic (not roughing it) with canvas... More

Ngala does an excellent job of providing the feel of the bush with luxurious accomodations. "Tent" is a misnomer for your tent is anything but. All guests are housed in private huts which are completely outfitted to satisfy any possible need. The central lodge provides restaurants and a bar. Service is excellent with a staff member always present to provide... More

We recently came back from an 8 day trip to Ngala Tented Camp. We were greeted by a very professional but friendly staff. Richard was our butler. His laugh was infectious. He took outstanding care of us. Dennis who is the manager always asked how we were doing. The food was outstanding and they would cater to your needs. Amos,... More

Just got back from 8 nights at Ngala Tented Camp managed by & Beyond. Having been to several safari lodges in South Africa this location sits at the top of the list with us. Now to clarify we are not looking for maximum opulence. There is a point where one must ask "what am I paying for". If you are... More
