Each of the nine tented suites at Ngala Tented Camp sits on a raised platform for safety and to maximize the view. An outdoor shower enhances the natural experience, and an indoor bathtub mounted on a beautiful wood base adds a splash of luxury when you want to relax. Stay cool with the powerful overhead fans and air conditioning or use a provided electric blanket to stay warm in winter. We love the private wooden deck outside each suite, and we’re also impressed with how each suite disappears into the riverside trees, reducing the footprint of this environmentally responsible camp.
Ngala Tented Camp
The Ngala Tented Camp near Kruger National Park offers you an authentic African experience that we love – with the comfort and amenities you have the right to demand. We find the canvas, lanterns and wide-open sky very romantic and relaxing. The beautifully polished wood decks, decadent fabrics and carefully considered construction of the camp add sophistication to the rustic charm.
At Ngala Tented Camp from andBeyond, you get a genuine safari experience surrounded by lions and other Big Five animals – yet you can rest easy in safety thanks to the well-designed camp’s protections. Plus, the excellent service makes you feel like you’re staying in a fine hotel.
This sturdy tented camp is located permanently between a dense river-fed forest and the sandy beach at Timbavati to ensure that you have a diverse and rich African experience. You can simply step out onto your viewing deck overlooking the river and the game that drink from it when you need a reminder of where you are. You can also experience a pool that will make you think you’re with the animals in the river as well as other fine amenities like plush chairs, roaring fireplaces and more. Have your meals with the exclusive group of other guests in several spectacular venues, including the dry riverbed, a canopy of impressive trees or simply on the deck.
The experience is carefully plans to give you options and plenty to do – when you aren’t relaxing in amazement at your magnificent surroundings.
