We have had such a wonderfull time staying 4 nights at Ngala. The tents are beautifull and spacious, the beds are huge and very comfortable, and the feeling of being in the middle of the wildernis is great. We felt very very welcome and were pampered by all the staff members. We enjoyed the personal approach enormously. On our last night right after our game drive, the staff surprised us. Because off our anniversary, they filled our bath, they put lots of rose petals in our tent and lit lots of romantic candles. Also, they arranged for us to have a private dinner on our terrace. And then the scenery. When we sat at our terrace, we saw the impala's grazing around the tents. And from the lounge, you have a great view on the (dry) riverbed, with lots of animals walking by (elephants, girafs, impala, kudu, baboons, etc). Off course, we stayed here to see some wildlife. And we sure did!! We didn't expect to see so many animals, and from so close by as well! We hoped to see some of the big five, but we saw them all, on several occasions and so many more! We had a great tracker and ranger (Richard and J.P.). They explained a lot and took the time to enjoy the scenery and the sightings. We can also recommend the walking safari. We had a close encounter with a rhino, wow, what a rush! In short, an unforgetable experience!
