Ngala was the first private reserve to be incorporated into the Kruger National Park and its established reputation and impeccable service is immediately apparent. In terms of wildlife, this 14,7000-hectare reserve is similar to what the Kruger possesses (Big Five) but Ngala benefits from good concentrations of lion, frequent leopard spottings and wide open terrain preferred by the wild dog.

The nine tented camps positioned on raised platforms and spaced out for more privacy at Ngala are exceptionally cosy and romantic. Soft swathes of canvas draped into a dome look over a large king bed, wooden floors, modern appliances and simple, stylish fittings.

Well-equipped for both hot and cold weather the tents have en-suite bathrooms with deep bath tubs, an outdoor shower, separate toilets, and although the tents are quite sparsely decorated, it’s all you’ll need and more.

The main tented lodge has a refreshing lap pool with loungers and some good elevated patios looking onto the Timbavati riverbed. The rolled-up sides allow for good views from the sitting room and dinner is usually under the stars on the patio.
