We spent two nights at Ngala Safari Lodge, and absolutely loved the entire experience. I have written a blurb on each of what we thought made up the key elements to our incredible time there.

From the extensive training they require of their guides to the attention their facility staff provides they have developed a great lodge. We cannot overstate how well our visit went. We... More

The Ngala lodge is an amazing property in an amazing location. It is surrounding a watering hole that is regularly visited by herds of elephants. What a surprise to watch these animals from the swimming pool area. During my stay a hippo had elected residence in the water, roaming about at night, but being back again lying in the water...

This place is incredible, upon entering the grounds, two seconds later we encounter a beautiful huge elephant just having some lunch. The lodge was spectacular and we had daily visitors ( herds of elephant and baboons) refreshing themselves in the watering hole in front of the pool.

We spent 4 wonderful at Ngala Safari Lodge. Mama Connie and from Foster was truly welcoming and made us feel at home from the start.

We spent three nights in the fa,ily suite, and had an unbelievable experience. Our kids will never forget it. The food was amazing (prepare for a diet when you get home!), our guides were amazing, and everyone is so welcoming.

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
