We stayed at Ngama for 3 nights as part of a short break with Intrepid. It is a beautifully secluded lodge (as they all are in this park), and the tents are so comfortable and wonderfully appointed. The bed is huge, there's a claw foot bath and a choice of two showers (open air showers with monkeys nearby? Only for...

My partner and I stayed here for four nights in January and it was our favourite place from our trip across South Africa. We drove in ourselves in a sedan which required some skilled driving, but we were able to make it. Would recommend anyone doing the self drive option to opt for a 4x4 if possible especially if it's...

We stayed at Ngama for 4 nights last week... wow, incredible place to stay. Such warm hospitality, beautiful surroundings and wonderful tented accommodation. The food is really amazing, couldn't fault it. There is a lovely little pool for cooling down which the kids loved. Great tours too. I would highly recommend this lodge.

Ever heard of glamping? Well this is kinda like that as you're in basically a high-end tent right in the middle of nature. If you're aware of what type of stay you will have here you will absolutely enjoy it as you are truly one with nature in all ways. The staff is absolutely incredible and their meals are great!...

We got a warm welcome on arrival and immediately felt totally relaxed. We loved the ambience at Ngama. The tent and lounge decor are beautiful and in good taste, the canvas structure really works fantastic. The peace and tranquility in the camp makes it very special. The personal are friendly and well trained. All the meals we had was exquisite....

Great food, great accommodation, great service. Not in the park but close enough to do a day tour self drive and/or see the close-by animal rehab facilities. Ngama will also arrange tours to see the Kruger Park and game drives on near by reserves. Ngama is value for money and actually offers luxury accommodation at very reasonable prices. Proof of...
