The entire staff was amazing - my wife and I went to celebrate our honeymoon and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. We were there for three days and say the Big 5, all up close and personal. Saw a lioness playing with her four...More

We hadn't even stepped out of the vehicle upon our arrival before Dennis, camp manager, welcomed us home. This was the foundation of an incredible pampered and fascinating experience in the South African bushvelt. The team at And Beyond go over and beyond -- literally...More

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.
