|Ngala Safari Lodge has captured an atmosphere that is seldom found in the wilderness - of unashamed luxury and romance that makes guests feel like royalty.|
Ngala Safari Lodge Location
Ngala game reserve in the north-western Kruger National Park, lies on the doorstep of immense population of game that roam the plains, mopane woodland and bush of the Timbavati River Valley. There is so much game, in fact, that in the long warm evenings of the bushveld summer, animals wander around the thatched chalets at Ngala Lodge, en route to the waterhole, that lies right in the middle of the camp.
The waterhole at Ngala is actually an extension of the swimming pool, so that you can lounge in your deckchair soaking up the summer sun as elephants come down to drink a few metres away.
Today it ranks among Southern Africa''''s most luxurious game lodges, offering five star comfort and cuisine in one of the subcontinent''''s most densely populated game areas.

Ngala is the Shangaan word for lion, and there is no shortage of these cats here - few visitors to Ngala depart without at least one sighting of lions.
Huge breeding herds of elephants and most of the game animals are found here, and a walk or game drive in the camp''''s vicinity may reveal Giraffes, the elusive Leopard, Cheetah, large herds of Buffalo, White Rhino, Spotted Hyena and Blackbacked Jackal.
More than 350 species of bird find sanctuary at Ngala.
Ngala Safari Lodge Facilities
Main Camp - The spirit of old Africa has truly been captured with sumptuous decor at Ngala Lodge. Luxurious thatched bush chalets, spaced well apart to ensure complete privacy, nestle in the shade of indigenous trees festooned with beautiful orchids. A short distance away there is a sparkling swimming pool, fringed by such flowering shrubs as Impala Lily. The ice blue waters of the pool spill over into a natural rock pool that serves as a watering spot for animals. You may eat dinner inside the spacious lounge, dining room and bar complex, with its high thatched roof, green slate floors and bushveld artefacts. Or you may choose to dine by candle light in the courtyard, on a terrace of slate under the stars. Ngala Safari Suite - Lying in the shade of Bushwillow and Buffalo thorn in an isolated corner of the camp, is probably one of the most luxurious suites of its kind in Southern Africa. There is an ambience of Edwardian bushveld luxury as you stroll into the living room, with its open thatch and tar-pole roof, exquisite furnishings and large adjoining sundeck, which you access through French doors.
The bedroom also with its own fireplace and sundeck, has an en suite bathroom, with a white 1920`s bathtub and a twin shower overlooking a waterhole and the canopy of surrounding trees. The Safari Suite also has its own swimming pool, private Land Rover and exclusive game watching expeditions.
