We stayed there for two nights as a group of mothers and their daughters and we received the best treatment ever, from the minute we arrived till we left we were treated like queens. The catering is tops and to die for- presentation of food and the taste. 😇😇😇👍👍👏👏👏 May the almighty bless the Ngama team.

My wife and I went for a romantic overnight at this intimate camp and we loved it! The tent was beautiful- white furniture with light blue accents making it feel big and airy. It was also well equipped. The staff were very friendly, and made us feel welcome. The boma dinner and dining room breakfast were wonderful, and we thoroughly...

Not at all what we expected Non of the photos shown on the website represented our unit where we stayed in and honestly I would feel embarrased to charge people to even stay there. All the units are very close to each other so don't expect a lot of privacy. The pool is so small that you cannot really go...

Whilst this lodge is in a reserve, like with other reserves you cannot drive around in the reserve. Should you wish to take a game drive to see animals, you either need to self drive in Kruger (40 mins away) or go to another property (which you are charged for). The guests tended to be rowdy (not typical quiet bush...

Fabulous weekend getaway for my husband and I. From the moment we arrived until we left we were totally relaxed. Tim and Ben were attentive without 'hovering' and all other staff were efficient and friendly. Delicious food and reasonable wine list. Beautiful setting and day spent relaxing by the pool whilst the other guests explored the region. The walk with...

The service at Ngama was second to none. Ben and Tim were always on hand and the rest of the staff ensured a great experience by getting everything perfect in the background. They ensured we felt at home and assisted us with all our requests in a very welcoming manner. The dinners in the Boma were our highlight with amazing...
