Location: South Africa–>Kruger National Park–>Ngala Private Game Reserve
Accommodation Type: Lodge
Good For:Couple/Romantic, Family, Solo

Ngala Safari Lodge located in Ngala Private Game Reserve which occupies a scenic spot on the border of the Kruger National Park, a 15 000 hectare range of some of the most amazing wildlife spotting opportunities anywhere in Africa. As one of the first concessions to be officially incorporated into the exclusive greater Kruger National Park, it enjoys otherwise unheard of traversing rights to this spectacular area. With first class luxury facilities, a minimum impact contruction, and a genuine sense of the adventure native to the Kruger, Ngala is a stunning safari getaway that is second to none.

Ngala, the shangaan term for “lion”, is also the name given to this romantic safari lodge, at home in an area made famous by regular sightings of black and white rhino, elephant, buffalo, wild dog and buck. A peaceful holiday destination, it takes heavy hints from the colonial style of decoration long since lost to most lodges – softly lit, bold wooden finishings, courtyards and thatched bomas under which dinner is served – these are some of the elements which make up the character of this rich and colourful lodge.
Ngala Luxury Lodge is a fantastic destination for honeymooners or couples seeking the intimacy and romance synonymous with lodges such as this.
