Ngala Private Game Reserve is situated within the western boundary of the world renowned Kruger National Park, at the heart of the South African lowveld. This is one of the richest wildlife regions on the continent, with a great diversity of large and spectacular wildlife. Elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffalo and white rhino are all common and are extremely relaxed when approached by vehicles, allowing for unsurpassed game viewing and photographic opportunities.
Caught between the dense riverine forest and the sandy bed of the Timbavati, extensive viewing decks give onto the river, giving guests a frontline view of game wandering down to drink. A rim flow pool mimics the contours of the river bed, inviting in for a refreshing dip. Plush armchairs beguile you to spend a lazy afternoon idly gazing into the river bed. At night, when tales of the day’s adventure are shared and compared, a roaring fireplace springs to life. The stirring scents of Africa’s famous spices waft up from a meal shared in a spectacular setting – among islands or reeds in the dry Timbavati riverbed, beneath the canopy of massive trees or on our expansive deck.
