Ngala Safari Lodge

Discover Ngala Safari Lodge

Ngala Safari Lodge is situated in &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve, which shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park. A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness, including breeding herds of elephant, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe, large buffalo herds and white rhino.

Ngala Safari Lodge boasts 20 classic thatched cottages and the spacious Family Suite. Each ensuite cottage, with private veranda, exudes a romantic colonial ambiance with nostalgic safari memorabilia throughout. The lodge also provides a swimming pool, safari shop, waterhole, outdoor dining area and offers a unique children's programme. Local wildlife in abundant throughout the Ngala Reserve, with multiple large prides of lions spending time nearby and wild dog moving throughout the reserve. Game drives in the private reserve allow guests to carefully travel off-road to track these amazing animals. Sharing an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, game drives are rich in wildlife big and small. For guests wanting a closer experience, specialised walking safaris and rhino notching experiences are available. Witness the darting of a rhino, and assist the veterinary team in notching the sleeping rhino's ear for research and security monitoring, before releasing it back into the wild. Ear notches enable researchers to correctly identify different individuals on the reserve.
