Aircons!! Fans and a great view. Being welcomed with champagned and valet service to chalet was a big surprise. With all the luxuries from home from daily cleaning. Satelite TV great braai facilities and good spots to watch game when lazy going into park. Much needed upgrade to the shop and contents will keep me in lodge longer.

We spent 3 days at this lodge, and have only good things to say. Our unit was one overlooking the large dam. The unit had everything that you would need in a self catering unit including a dishwasher. The place was spotless, and when we had an issue with one of the bathrooms, it was sorted within half an hour....

Chalets are well equipped, clean & properly maintained. There is a constant refurbishment program in place that ensures all chalets are upgraded at regular intervals. The main restaurant & bar area is also a pleasant place to spend a few leisurely hours watching river activities.

We stayed in unit HB50 once again. I think it has the best views over the crocodile river into Kruger Park. It has its own deck with a rim-flow pool. This resort is well positioned for easy access into Kruger via Crocodile Bridge gate (10km) or Malelane gate (About 50km) but remember to book as a day visitor in school...

We had the best experience, the views from our deck, the restaurant and excellent house keeping made us forget the rat race and we got real food for the soul. We stayed in a chalet overlooking the river. the sunsets and fresh early morning rays on the bush were something from out of this world.

Another fantastic stay. Great, peaceful, relaxing river front accommodation (except for the noisy geese!). We recently spent a week there to chill and it is so tranquil that you don't need to go into the park every day. You might not see all the big 5 on the river bed but you definitely see more than you would if you...

Ngwenya Lodge is situated on the southern tip of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. This means that visitors don’t even have to leave the resort to see a huge variety of game species – including the famous Big Five. The river view chalets overlook a scenic floodplain, which allows for magnificent views of the area where the big cats often hunt. Our Dam and Bush view chalets are set back on the property and also have beautiful views, as they overlook tranquil dams or bush areas. Game viewing hides make game viewing on the riverfront accessible to all – so no one misses out on spotting any of their favorite wild animals. Holiday in the luxury you’re used to… The units have fully equipped kitchens with a stove, fridge, freezer and a microwave. Each unit has a television and an undercover veranda with patio table, chairs and a braai, for unforgettable get-togethers with family and friends. Ngwenya’s on-site facilities include a pub, a beauty salon with a wide range of treatments, a curio shop, a small convenience shop, 6 outdoor swimming pools, 18 hole Mini Golf course, 2 tennis courts, trampolines, jungle gyms, a games room with pool tables, table tennis, Playstations with Xbox Kinnect, a kiddies room with various board games, puzzles, and kids movies.We can’t wait for you to visit us. ... more   less
