We loved everything about Ngala! Everything was very well kept and the service was beyond our expectations. There was thoughtfulness in everything they did. They paired us up with fellow travelers of the same age and safari experience (it was the first time for all of us.) The food was fantastic and every one of the staff members was kind, welcoming, and friendly.

Please see above comments under South Africa, but if I could give this a 6/5 I would. I cannot recommend this lodge enough and, in particular, our guide Jappi and our tracker, Harold, made it an absolutely wonderful experience. I cannot wait to go back.
