Both Ngala Tented Camp and Benguerra Island were incredible in their own rights and to say which one we preferred would do the other a disservice. The game drives and bush dinners at Ngala and the island picnics and diving at Benguerra were definitely the highlights of each. The service and hospitality that &Beyond; provides is unmatched and perhaps even more notable is how the company truly makes wherever they are a better place by investing in the employees, their families and all the locals. They build homes, teach children (and adults), provide emergency services and so many other things. We are guests for life and can't wait for our next adventure with them!
I would give Ngala Tented Camp a higher rating if i could - every moment we spent there was pure perfection. We will never forget our guide Derrick, our tracker Thomas and our butler MK. We will return to this camp in the future and are already recommending it to all our friends and family.
Benguerra Island is breathtakingly beautiful and the &Beyond; lodge is the best on the island! We particularly loved the secluded picnics - we did one on the South point of the island and one on the North point, both spectacular!
Claire was amazing from beginning to end and we owe all of the lifelong memories from our honeymoon to her! She took the time to chat on the phone multiple times to really nail down what we are looking for in a honeymoon and was enthusiastic (and patient!) during the back-and-forth while finalizing our itinerary. Full marks for Claire! I hope we can work with her again in the future.
