Outstanding would cover every aspect our stay at Ngala! The property was updated in 2016 and the large rooms are lovely. Modern conveniences such as plugs and usb ports everywhere are a nice touch. The indoor/outdoor bathroom is fantastic with floor to ceiling windows and a free standing tub and indoor shower as well as a nice outdoor shower area....

Ngala is an absolute treat! The service of the management team and the knowledge of the ranger and trackers is unrivaled. We have travelled often in these parts and can truly say this was one of our best bush experiences. The leopard sightings were amazing in terms of quality and quantity and there was also lots of rhino, elephant, lion...

I can't recommend this place enough! We saw all of the big 5 animals plus many more over a 2 night stay. The"camp" is incredibly luxurious. All of the staff are super helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about the animals. Our room was better than most executive suites! It had a king sized bed, a beautiful outdoor private shower, a bath...

Having completed 4 separate ones, I feel I can finally add some value to the African Safari discussion. While wildlife and guides remain a staple feature, facilities, service and property set &Beyond's Ngala Lodge apart. From the private runway pickup, where you get greeted by your assigned guide, to the dining area, where you receive a warm "welcome home!" you...

I LOVED this property. Although the main lodge reception isn't the largest, it is the dining/restaurant building that is HUGE and really ties this property together. After a recent renovation, the rooms/huts are spacious and perfect for a couple. The whole lodge has more of a social feel with a large pool, rather than private plunge pools and breakfast and...

Ngala was most definitely the highlight of our South Africa trip. From the moment we landed and were greeted by the guides and our African Mama, the stay took on a magical feel.

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
