Ngala Safari Lodge accommodation is set within South Africa’s largest and most well-known game reserve; the Greater Kruger National Park; and is part of the andBeyond luxury lodges in Ngala Private Game Reserve.
Traditions of a bygone era with colonial antiques, silver cutlery, and crystal glassware; create an aura of romance and nostalgia. Style and grace blend with the rugged natural beauty of the setting; as manicured lawns give way to Mopane thickets and wild animals walk down to drink at the waterhole; which forms the heart of this authentic safari lodge.
The lodge’s swimming pool and sundeck overlook a natural riverine woodland; which is ideal for avid birdwatchers and ‘couch safaris’; while a tranquil massage sala and a well-equipped fitness room are also available. Dinners are in a candlelit courtyard, or as an African feast in the open-air boma.
There is also a great Safari Shop and Wifi is available in the guest rooms and guest areas; excluding the reception and pool areas.
