Ngala Safari Lodge & Tented Camp

Safari Lodge

The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial ambiance of elegant  Ngala Safari Lodge.  Ngala Safari Lodge’s 21 classic safari cottages overlook a private waterhole frequented by wildlife. 


The Lodge’s fun-filled children’s adventure programme makes it the ideal place for families. 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.
