Stayed here shortly after the floods about five or six years ago. Even then they’d managed to bring luxury to the camp. Incredible experience and offers a more intimate experience than the lodge. Absolutely blissful time here.
From start to finish- the service, the food, the staff, the setting and the safari exceeded my expectations.
The rooms are beautifully decorated natural, yet very stylish ambiance with comfortable beds, beautifully appointed bathrooms, fabulous outdoor shower!

As the previous person said, you won't be getting out of the vehicle except for during breaks for a drink/snack/potty. You also won't be standing in the vehicle, in part to keep from alarming the wildlife. My husband used a Canon 100-400L lens to get some amazing shots, including closeups of, for example, an elephant's eye or a beautifully colored bird. He rented it online--cheaper than buying such a large lens but if you're serious about getting great shots it was worth it. We brought a fixed lens camera for wider shots, which was useful for establishing context or shooting photos of the people on our drive. We also picked up a monopod in Johannesburg before heading out, but you might be able to get by with just a beanbag. I believe Ngala doesn't put more than six guests in any of its vehicles so everyone has a "window seat," although they're all open-air so you don't have to worry about a roof or frame blocking your view.
