Ngala Safari Lodge is a much more economical option than its neighbour Ngala Tented and substantially less expensive than its Sabi Sands competitors. With 20 rooms, Ngala Safari Lodge is much larger than its neighbours but the size drives down the price and makes this lodge one of the most economical options in the Kruger and its surrounding reserves. This is certainly still a high-end luxury lodge and a great option for saving some cash. An excellent option for families.
Ngala Safari Lodge - The Details
Ngala Safari Lodge sits in the shade under a canopy of mopane and tamboti trees. The 20 classic thatched cottages, each air-conditioned and with a private veranda, exude a romantic colonial ambience with nostalgic safari memorabilia throughout. The gracious Safari Suite offers guests a spacious sitting room, private swimming pool, and some added privacy.
The Lodge’s large swimming pool overlooks a natural riverine woodland, ideal for avid birdwatchers. Breakfasts and lunches featuring fresh pan-African flavours are served in the shade of an enormous weeping boerbean tree.
On returning from evening game drives, guests are welcomed by Ngala’s staff to a banquet in the courtyard, or to an African feast around the blazing boma fire. The Lodge’s thatched dining, bar and sitting areas are open to the warm breezes of the inviting African bushveld.
