My boyfriend and I stayed at the Ngala tented camp for 4 nights in November and would not have wanted to be anywhere else. We travel extensively around the world for work and play and have stayed in top hotels and eaten in the best restaurants but this is by far the best service we have ever had.
The food was incredible and there was tons of it! Gift and Oscar (the two chefs) surpassed our expectations. Oscar was king enough to give me his recipe of the best Tiramisu I have ever had (Amarula Tiramisu)!
The tents were very spacious and luxurious (the pictures do not do justice to the camp). We heard animals roaming in the camp every night (lions, buffalos, leopards) it was incredible.
The game drives were so much fun with Richard (our tracker) and Jeff (our ranger) going out of their way to find sittings that would blow our socks off. Jeff's off road driving skills in the bush were impressive. We will always remember the two lion cubs with their mother, the leopard and the 3 cheetahs!!!!
The team even surprised us with champagne and nibbles in the dry river bed at candle light on the last evening (fabulous!).
Our personal butler Wilson gave us service that surpassed any 5 star hotel service by a mile!
The manager (Desire) went out of her way to make everybody part of the family. As the camp is quite small (6 tents only) it was a key element to the success of our stay!
We would recommend this destination to anyone, even the most seasoned travellers!
