We had the chance to stay at the safari lodge ( 1 night) and the tented lodge ( 2 nights) so I thought I would offer my thoughts for those making a decision between the two. The safari lodge is beautiful , rooms are gorgeous, personnel is top notch. But the tented camp had superior game viewing when we were...

An amazing experience! I had been to Krueger park once before but did not see the same variety of animals nor at the same close range. From lions to elephants to rhinos... The driver and ranger were knowledgeable and fun. The lodge was 5* in terms of if beautiful renovated cabins in a natural setting, the staff were very friendly...

My first visit to Africa allowed me to see Krueger national park. I was blessed to book my trip with &Beyond. They met us at the airport and made sure every transfer went smoothly. The hospitality was beyond compare. I loved the drives, breakfasts in the bush, food, hospitality, and setting. It was great to be greeted whenever we returned...

Spent three wonderful days at the Ngala Safari Lodge with my wife and two children (7 and nearly 5). Most importantly the rangers and trackers were outstanding and each game drive was great (this is my 6th or 7th safari). The Lodge facilities are very nice for a Lodge this size (I would estimate the guest capacity to be 25-30)....

We have just returned from a lovely three day stay at Ngala Safari Camp which rounded off our SA trip. I can only agree with previous comments and highly recommend this as a wonderful destination located at the heart of the Timbavati game reserve. The welcome we received from Beatrice, Herbert, Tussen and team made us feel immediately at home...

Special Thanks to head ranger Barney and tracker Harold for their friendliness and great knowledge, butler Norman for his service, chefs Simon and Esther for their excellent meals.

My wife and I visited Ngala Safari Lodge for our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing. The staff prepared a couple of surprises for us throughout the trip which made it feel like a special experience. The food was some of the best food we've ever had - which we were not expecting. Our Ranger/Guide was Andre and he absolutely crushed...

There is just to much to praise, so simply put, you must go here! The people, the animals, the food and accomodation, all of it was 100% 5 Star! If you are looking for full Immersion into a game park, with animals literally wandering in and out of camp, this is the place. We cannot wait to go back!!!!

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
