We stayed at Ngala for 2 nights and had a fantatic experience. The rooms were recently renovated and were very nice. The bathroom included an outdoor shower that was such a nice treat. There is an indoor shower as well, but why bother when you can shower outside! The room had lovely furnishings and came with a mini bar that...

We are so glad that we managed to have the opportunity to stay at both the Safari Lodge and the Tented camp. If you prefer a bigger resort with more "facilities" i.e. bar, extensive lounge areas and a very large dining hall then this is the place for you. As always the food was beautiful and tasty. Even the snacks...

andBeyond is a company that runs a large number of "safari" camps throughout Africa and other continents. They have done an exceptional job of refining the experience they offer. From the extensive training they require of their guides to the attention their facility staff provides they have developed a great lodge. We cannot overstate how well our visit went. We...

The Ngala lodge is an amazing property in an amazing location. It is surrounding a watering hole that is regularly visited by herds of elephants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The romance and mystery of Africa come alive in 20 thatched cottages tucked under a dense canopy of tamboti trees at Ngala Safari Lodge. Exuding classical safari charm, the spacious veranda, with its wonderfully comfortable armchairs, looks out onto a popular waterhole. For pure indulgence, the Safari Suite offers an elegant sitting room, private swimming pool and exclusive use of a safari vehicle. Mouth-watering meals are served in the shade of an enormous weeping boerbean tree, while a large swimming pool lies on the edge of thick riverine woodland. ... more   less
