Ngala, meaning 'lion' in Shangaan, was the only private safari lodge originally incorporated into the legendary Kruger National Park. Memories of safaris of bygone eras echo through the safari lodge. Stylishly thatched cottages serve as a temporary sanctuary for guests on their exciting Timbavati Safari.
Antique-filled interiors, priceless rugs and cut-glass crystal furnish this opulent retreat. The antique furniture in the rooms is a light wood, while the soft decor is cream and beige at the lodge. The living spaces are tastefully decorated with large African artwork. Private verandas allow for private dinners for guests wanting a night of seclusion.
Luxury family accommodation in the Timbavati Game Reserve is offered in 3 family cottages as well as a two-bedroom Family Suite, with its own swimming pool, as well as a dedicated vehicle and ranger / tracker team, offers an exclusive family getaway.
The main spacious, thatched lounge, bar and dining area offers guests an unashamedly old-world, elegant and luxurious haven in the midst of the African bush. A portion of the thatched lounge forms an open deck area, where afternoon tea and breakfast are served. Ngala also boasts a swimming pool and a spa and fitness sala, safari shop and a library.
