“Marvel of Timbervati”

Diediker,

Cave Creek, Arizona

Ngala is an absolute treat! The service of the management team and the knowledge of the ranger and trackers is unrivaled. We have travelled often in these parts and can truly say this was one of our best bush experiences. The leopard sightings were amazing in terms of quality and quantity and there was also lots of rhino, elephant, lion and buffalo. The meals were superb and the little touches made the stay extraneous special. If you do get there you will be in for an unforgettably wonderful safari experience.

“Best place ever”

NGALA SAFARI LODGE

Ngala was most definitely the highlight of our South Africa trip. From the moment we landed and were greeted by the guides and our African Mama, the stay took on a magical feel. The room was fabulous, the food fabulous, the staff fabulous. But the safaris took my breath away! Our guide was so knowledgeable and educated us in a calm, quiet manner (along with healthy doses of humor!). It was amazing to be so close to these majestic animals! And yes, we saw the Big 5 and so much more. Because of Ngala, I will forever be in love with Africa.

“5 Star property at 4 star prices”

I LOVED this property. Although the main lodge reception isn't the largest, it is the dining/restaurant building that is HUGE and really ties this property together. After a recent renovation, the rooms/huts are spacious and perfect for a couple. The whole lodge has more of a social feel with a large pool, rather than private plunge pools and breakfast and lunch served in the main building. The rooms are all close together and the guides/rangers/trackers here were all full of energy and so knowledgeable.

Wow wow wow.... I have never been so happy on a holiday before. The place is so awesome - under the skies shower, are you kidding me?????? So perfect for a getaway. No TVs, the game drives are superb (Bernard is the best. Also Thomas, what a team). Haven't checked out yet but I am writing this. Connie is a breathe of fresh air. Everyone is so nice. We saw the big 5. This is value for money and more. THANK YOH, you made my wife and I feel very special. We are definitely coming back and very soon!!!!!!!
