We visited Ngala for 7 nights in June. You did read that correctly - 7 nights of safari !! It is a long time to go on Safari but I have to say, Ngala made everyday different and we had a wonderful time. The lodge itself is really nice with great rooms, a lovely pool and plenty of areas to relax. The best thing about Ngala is the food and the staff. The food is amazing and the staff are simply superb. You will really be looked after here.
Our ranger and tracker were brilliant. They really work hard to find you what you want to see and we were lucky enough to be around when some lions killed a buffalo. We only saw it because they tracked for hours to find the lions!
We were lucky enough to spend some of our time in the Safari Suite which is stunning. If you get the chance to stay in the Suite you will have a fantastic time. We had a few chilly days while we were there and the fires that were lit in the Suite made it really cozy. We were then lucky enough to have some really good weather and got the chance to use the Suite swimming pool.
I could go on and on but if you are lucky enough to go to Ngala you will not be dissapointed. It's a wonderful place. Be prepared to put on a few pounds - the food really is gorgeous!!
