My husband and arrived at Ngala to a warm, family feeling welcome. Our cottage was lovely with a cozy lodge atmosphere. We arrived on time for lunch and the buffet was amazing!! Then it was game drive time. Nothing prepared me for the excitement of tracking lions, rhinos and leopards and off-roading into the bush to find them. Truly thrilling...

We ended our 21 day South Africa trip by spending 4 nights here. After doing much research to find a Game Rich Safari we discovered highly rated South African Tourism Company on Trip Advisor and dealt with lovely Melissa. She provided us with options according to our wants and was extremely quick to respond to our many questions and worked...

Nice little safari lodge with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The six game rides we did were really exceptional. The ranger and the spotter really were good, so was our butler. The rooms were nice, but bathroom age stared to show. They will be renovated in the coming months. Food was the weakest point in the total experience, abundant but...

I can not say enough positive things about my experience at Ngala. The wild life viewing was excellent and the staff really went above and beyond to make our experience memorable. We sat a watched lion cubs stalking and wrestling one another, watched 2 bull elephants "play fight" (still pretty impressive) and woke 2 rhinos who had been sleeping in...

&BeyondNgala was the second of three game reserves that we visited in South Africa and a step up in accommodation from the first one. While we expected nice, Ngala was more luxurious than anticipated with antique furnishings in a most comfortable room. Attentiveness to needs was over the top as provided via our personal butler, Foster. While the weather was...

My wife and I decided to honeymoon in South Africa from 9-22 October 2015. After doing a fair amount of research we identified &Beyond as the best travel company for us due to their emphasis on conservation and bespoke travel experiences. Our trip included 3 nights at the &Beyond Ngala Lodge and 3 nights at Kirkman's Camp. &Beyond also arranged...

This is an experience that you will never forget. The whole thing from start to finish is perfect. The staff are very attentive and the sole objective is that you have the most amazing African Safari experience whilst feeling like part of the African village. You have to game drives a day one early morning and one late afternoon both...

The andBeyond Ngala Safari Lodge was a wonderful place to stay, from the food and chalet to the search for animals every morning and evening. Steve, our guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable, as was our tracker, and the atmosphere in our truck was friendly and warm. Staff on a whole did their best to make sure we were comfortable and happy....

A brilliant exprience - the accommodation, the food, the service and of course the amazing wildlife. The staff were incredibly friendly and fantastically knowledgable; nothing was too much trouble. We felt in very safe and capable hands from begining to end. A different world, and such a treat.

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
