The lodge is designed and decorated in an authentic way-- the buildings blend beautifully into the typography. The tents are beautifully appointed and lack nothing. The highlight are the animals that drink daily from the swimming pool, most notably elephants and Cape buffalo. The pool water, however, was cloudy and the pool floor was slimy.

This safari tent was AMAZING! The tent had heated running water, heating, air conditioning, and heated blankets. It had two bathroom sinks, bathroom, bath tub and outdoor shower. All of the doors lock, and there is a locking safe in the tent. The staff at this resort were beyond expectations. Our ranger, Lee-Anne, was the most knowledgeable person about animals...

We stayed here in 2010 and we cannot wait to return. Everything about the place was magical, the food was second to none and the staff were great, especially the spotter who was amazing, he and the driver/ranger were great banter. We lucked out that we shared drives with a great couple too. Awesome!!

This is one of our favourite Safari destinations. It never fails to deliver and we just love the facilities location and the total professionalism of the whole establishment. Game viewing and location just suberb. Big 5 is a given.

This was our third lodge over 7 nights and our only tent. We loved it! Of course, you are not roughing it at all--the tent had wooden floors, a gorgeous tub, a dressing area and an outdoor shower. All set amid an intimate camp setting, where impalas and warthogs frolicked right in front our tent, and buffalo gazed up at...

We first came to Ngala Tented camp 3 years ago. We just returned from 2 nights at Tented camp as our third stay in as many years. This lodge is incredible. Since it's maximum capacity is 18 people (9 tents), it has a very nice, intimate feel. The "tents" are very comfortable and spacious. The beds are perfect for a...

Although you are sleeping in a tent, don't be fooled. There is nothing tent-like or ordinary about this property. It is luxurious and beautiful, very private and comfortable. We stayed in tent 1 which has a view of the dry riverbed and is close to the pool. Be sure to bring your own converter - there are none provided in...

Several weeks ago we spent four days on safari at Ngala Tented Camp. It was our first time on safari, and I joke that the first day we saw 7 of the Big 5. Some of the African safari reviews rate the Timbavati lower in game density than say Sabi Sand, but I don't see how that would be possible....

Loved our stay at Ngala. We had room 7 which is one of the more modern tents and has an excellent view over the river (currently dry) where elephants walk up and down. The food throughout was good (although not as good as Kirkman's) with service from our butler David attentive, warm and friendly. We were treated to a visit...
