ABOUT THE LODGE & RESERVE
Situated only three kilometres (1.9 miles) from Orpen Gate - one of the major gateways into the world-famous Kruger National Park - this elegant safari camp is known internationally for sophisticated tented accommodation in tranquil African bush surrounds.
Set on the banks of the great seasonal Timbavati River, Ngala Tented Safari Camp was built with a light footprint to minimise impact on the environment. Rated in numerous prestigious listings such as the US Conde Nast Traveler's "Hot List", it is a gracious camp with a contemporary feel and flamboyant styling. Guest areas feature retro pieces from the 50s, 60s and 70s and beautiful timber decks which overlook the seasonal riverbed.
Private lunch platters of delicious Pan-African cuisine can be enjoyed on the viewing decks or at the poolside. Exciting bush banquets in spectacular wilderness settings and theatrical alfresco dinners in the dry riverbed are an unforgettable experience
