Experience awe-inspiring wildlife encounters at Ngala Safari Lodge, located within Ngala Private Game Reserve.
Hidden among massive mopane and tamboti trees, the lodge and its twenty-one thatched cottages meld into the landscape. Privacy is at a premium in each hideaway, which exudes safari ambiance with creamy, soft linens, mosquito-draped beds, muted prints and etchings, and a traditional thatched roof. Each private cottage also features an en-suite bathroom including a shower, twin vanities, and a relaxing bath. For added privacy, each suite comes with a shaded veranda. For families enjoying a safari adventure together, book the two-bedroom Family Suite, complete with its own swimming pool, dedicated vehicle, and ranger. The lodge also has three family cottages, each consisting of two suites that are conveniently interlinked via a door for easy access and can accommodate two adults and two children per cottage.
The lodge is located within the 36,000-acre Ngala Private Game Reserve, known for being the first private game reserve to be incorporated into world-famous Kruger National Park. Because Ngala shares an unfenced border with Kruger National Park, animals are able to roam freely, allowing a great diversity of wildlife viewing. With almost 150 species of large mammals, there are certainly sightings of the “big five”: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino. In addition to supporting the packs of endangered African wild dog, the area is home to zebras, cheetahs, giraffes, hippos, wildebeests, impalas, and spotted hyenas. Over 500 bird species flourish in the region, and indigenous reptiles include the black mamba and crocodile.
