&Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve
Kruger National Park, South Africa
&Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve shares an unfenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, South Africa's largest wildlife sanctuary and one of the biggest nature reserves in the world (encompassing 2 million hectares of wilderness). A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness - elephant, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe, buffalo and white rhino. Meaning "lion" in Shangaan, Ngala lives up to its name, supporting several prides of these powerful cats. Cheetah and African wild dog also regularly move through the Reserve.
&Beyond Ngala was the first private game reserve to be incorporated into Kruger National Park, and has exclusive traversing rights over 14 700 hectares of game-rich wilderness. Ngala offers an intimate African wildlife experience, led by expert ranger and tracker teams. In one of Africa's most innovative conservation partnership agreements, an annual lease, traversing fee and percentage of Ngala's profits are paid to the National Parks Trust to further conservation projects throughout South Africa.
Ngala is home to two magnificent lodges, each with its own individual charm and character: Ngala Safari Lodge and Ngala Tented Camp.
Ngala - Untouched Wilderness
Ngala Safari Lodge - Take a step back in time to the classic Ngala Safari Lodge, deep in the heart of Big Five wilderness. Nestled under a canopy of mopane and tamboti trees, the thatched cottages exude safari romance.
Ngala Tented Camp - Sophisticated and intimate, this Camp sits sheltered under a luxuriantly cool tree canopy and overlooks the seasonal Timbavati riverbed.
