About Ngala Safari Lodge

Nature is never far at Ngala Safari Lodge, with breakfast and lunch served in the shade of an enormous weeping boere bean tree. A walled courtyard provides a sheltered space to indulge in sumptuous cuisine, while the boma creates a dramatic setting for fire-lit dinners.

Secret nooks and crannies with cushy sofas are ideal for quiet hours of contemplation in the leafy shade or while away the hours at the beautiful pool area. At night, a myriad lanterns and candles peep out between the boughs of trees, shining out a promise of warmth and comfort.

The days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife encounters and the nights to spoil you with the romance of Africa.

The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial lodge and accommodation.
