Ngala Private Game Reserve occupies a scenic spot in the Timbavati Game Reserve which is situated on the border of the Kruger National Park, a 15 000 hectare range of some of the most amazing wildlife spotting opportunities anywhere in Africa.
As one of the first concessions to be officially incorporated into the exclusive greater Kruger National Park, it enjoys otherwise unheard of traversing rights to this spectacular area. With first-class luxury facilities, a minimum impact construction, and a genuine sense of the adventure native to the Kruger, Ngala is a stunning safari getaway that is second to none.
Ngala is the Shangaan word for "lion", and is the name given to this romantic safari lodge which is located within an area that is renowned for regular sightings of black and white rhino, elephant, buffalo, wild dog, and buck. Ngala is a serene holiday destination, colonial in style with its soft-lit ambiance in the evenings, bold wooden finishings, courtyards and thatched bomas under which dinner is served - these are some of the touches that give Ngala its rich character.
Ngala Safari Lodge boasts twenty thatched Cottages, each complete with an en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning and private veranda. The cottages have floor-to-ceiling glass windows, making the most of the sunny safari days.
The three Family Cottages consist of two suites that are conveniently interlinked via a door for easy access and can accommodate two adults and two children.
The luxury Family Suite has its own en-suite bathroom, viewing deck, a personal pool and exclusive use of a safari vehicle.
The lodge offers guests early morning and late afternoon Big Five game drives, interpretive bush walk as well as tracking and photographic safaris.
Ngala Safari Lodge is ideal for families looking for an exclusive safari getaway, wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and for honeymooners or couples seeking the intimacy and romance synonymous with lodges such as this.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
