Ngala Tented Camp
is located in the Timbavati Reserve
in the Kruger
area to the Northeast
of South Africa
Set in the extreme southeast corner of the reserve, 1km from the Orpen Gate entry into the main reserve, Ngala Tented Camp is a high quality operation with intimate public areas on two levels overlooking the seasonal Timbavati River, with a lovely swimming pool and spa area beyond. Guest accommodation is in just six very stylish tented rooms. The service levels are very high.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife viewing in this Timbavati area is reliable year round. The level of guiding here is also very strong.
The main potential downsides are the proximity to main road to Kruger Orpen Gate and the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
In the Timbavati area the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, but that is true of almost all of Kruger.SeasonsPricesTrips
