Ngala Safari Lodge
Timbavati Private Reserve
Meaning “lion” in Shangaan, Ngala lives up to its name, supporting several prides of these powerful cats. It was the first private game reserve to be incorporated into Kruger National Park and is part of one of Africa’s most innovative conservation partnership agreements. Ngala is home to two magnificent lodges: The classic colonial style Safari Lodge and the luxurious and the Tented Camp.
Tucked under a canopy of Mopane and Tamboti trees, Ngala features 20 classic thatched cottages and the luxurious Safari Suite. Each of the romantic cottages offer a private veranda amid the African bushveld. The gracious Safari Suite offers guests a spacious sitting room and private swimming pool.
The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial ambiance of elegant Ngala Safari Lodge. A timeless, unhurried atmosphere, combined with the quaint traditions of a bygone era, creates an aura of romance and nostalgia. This old-world haven in the midst of the African bush charms with its colonial antiques, silver cutlery and crystal glassware.
Style and grace mingle faultlessly with the rugged natural beauty of the setting, as manicured lawns give way to dense Mopane thickets and wild animals saunter down to drink at the waterhole that forms the heart of this authentic safari lodge.
