Ngala Private Game Reserve, the first to be incorporated into the renowned Kruger National Park, offers exclusive traversing rights within 15 000 hectares (37 100 acres) of untouched wilderness. With this much space and sharing an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, Ngala is a wondrous place to track and discover Africa’s Big 5, as well as other wildlife species, great and small, including the endangered wild dog. A flat landscape on the Lowveld with undulating crests serves as an ideal haven for game drive and walking experiences.
While Ngala Tented Camp never lets you forget that you are in the wild, there is nothing primitive about this chic and contemporary camp.
The romance of canvas, with big night sounds and flickering lanterns lighting the camp grounds, mingles with the simple sophistication of polished wooden decks, textured fabrics and clean lines.
Ngala is a true safari experience where guests go to bed to the sounds of lion calling, safely cosseted in modern tented suites and pampered with the warm hearted service that embodies the soul of Africa.
Peering out onto the banks of the seasonal Timbavati River from the shelter of dense indigenous trees, nine tented suites offer a tranquil escape for city dwellers and travellers alike. The sights and sounds provide a gentle backdrop, as the ancient patterns of African life carry on around you. Every step unveils a new surprise, whether it’s a dainty impala tripping down the Camp path or a smart detail in the clean lines and flamboyant styling of the guest areas
