Absolutely amazing. Tessa, our ranger, our tracker and everyone including the guests were great. We hope to go back for an anniversary to celebrate because we enjoyed it so much.

Review of Ngala Safari Lodge

Nydia Duncan & Manuel Maturana

Our stay at Ngala was truly luxurious. We were so well taken cared of by the staff and they pulled out all the romantic stops for our honeymoon. We truly did not want to leave and I would go back to Ngala's properties. From the guides & trackers to the butlers to the security, everyone was so welcoming and it felt like home.
