Ngala Private Game Reserve

Exclusive Safari Lodge

Located on the boundary of the world renowned Kruger National Park, Ngala Private Game Reserve is well known for its high densities of elephant, buffalo and rhino, as well as for its African wild dogs. Ngala was the first private game reserve to be incorporated into the Kruger National Park and has exclusive traversing rights on almost 15 000 hectares (37 100 acres) of one of the richest wildlife regions on the African continent. A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness, including elephant, spotted hyena, giraffe, buffalo and white rhino.

Ngala means "lion" in Shangaan and the Reserve lives up to its name, supporting several prides of these powerful cats. However, it is even better known for excellent viewing of a more elusive cat, offering regular sightings of leopard, particularly females with their young.



Internet access is available.


Children are welcome. Regretfully children 5 and younger cannot participate in the regular game drives and children under the age of 12 cannot participate in bush walks. Child minders can be booked at an additional cost. Children aged 6 to 11 years are accommodated on game-drives at the lodge manager's discretion.

Ngala Game Lodge

The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial ambiance of elegant Ngala Safari Lodge. 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.

Ngala Tented Camp

While Ngala Tented Camp never lets you forget that you are in the wild, there is nothing primitive about this chic and contemporary camp. Ngala is a true safari experience where guests go to bed to the sounds of lion calling, safely cosseted in modern tented suites and pampered with the warm hearted service that embodies the soul of Africa.

Ngala Walking Safari

Enjoy Ngala's exhilirating four day, three night Walking Safaris tracking rhino, elephant bulls and buffalo herds on foot during exciting morning walks and viewing nocturnal predators on informative night game drives. Led by specialist, armed rangers, safety is the highest priority. A maximum of eight guests are accommodated in four spacious en-suite tents with comfortable beds, hot bucket showers and flush w.c's.
