Ngala Private Game Reserve lies in the southern part of the Timbavati Game Reserve bordering the Kruger National Park. In fact Ngala Tented Camp lies only 3km from the Kruger. Meaning 'Lion' in the Shangaan language, Ngala is home to several prides of these majestic cats as well as large herds of elephant. Cheetah and wild dog also regularly move through the 14,700ha reserve.


Ngala Tented Camp is a sophisticated tented camp with six deluxe tents on raised platforms with secluded wooden decks. Here the romance of canvas with flickering lanterns lighting the camp grounds, flawlessly combines simple elegance with sophistication. Outdoor showers, deep baths, air conditioning and electric blankets create comfort in an exceptional natural setting overlooking the seasonal Timbavati riverbed. The tents have wooden sides with gauze screen windows so that delicate breezes from the bushveld will keep you cool. Ngala Tented Camp has a very light eco-footprint as existing trees were cleverly incorporated into the design.

Surrounded by a timber deck, the lap pool merges with the contours of the river bank and offers the perfect place to relax in the heat of the day and even do a spot of indolent game-viewing from the comfort of your sun lounger.

Dining at Ngala Tented Camp is always an event with lunch offered at the pool or on the viewing decks, whilst their al fresco dinners in the dry riverbed are quite magical.

Elegant facilities

"Our favorite safari location was &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp due to it’s rustic but elegant facilities, and the food was superb as well. Within the first 2 days at Ngala we saw the big 5 and also got to see the more rare cheetah, wild dog and a white lion. "
