    We had two vehicles. 4 in one. 5 in other. It was really nice to have that much space.

    Very long, try flying to/from Hoedspruit instead which is about 1hr drive. You can also book airplane hop stopping at Ngala strip and that is even better!

    Hi, I am staying at this lodge March 4-8 and having trouble finding flights directly from Johannesburg to Ngala Airstip. South African Airlines is booked. Can anyone give me any recommendations? I'd prefer to fly but would also consider a shuttle service. I do not want to make the drive myself. Also, could anyone from the hotel let me know who I should speak to with specific travel questions prior to my arrival. Is there a toll free customer service number for the hotel? Did not see anything online. Thanks for your help and I'm so excited for my first safari experience!
