&Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge

Ngala Private Game Reserve

&Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge is situated in &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve, which shares an un-fenced boundary with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuary. A spectacular diversity of wildlife moves through this immense wilderness, including breeding herds of Elephant, Leopard, Spotted Hyena, Giraffe, Buffalo herds and White Rhino. The reserve supports several large prides of Lion, and African Wild Dogs can also be seen.

Ngala has exclusive traversing rights over 14 700 hectares of game-rich wilderness. Game drives are led by expert ranger and tracker teams while careful off-roading practices allow close-up game sightings. Walking safaris and  bush walks are also offered.

The annual lease, traversing fees and a percentage of Ngala’s profits from your stay are paid to the National Parks Trust to further conservation projects throughout South Africa.


Ngala Safari Lodge consists of  20 classically thatched cottages, including three family cottages with inter leading rooms and the spacious family suite. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows make the most of sunny safari days and a private veranda offers the perfect setting for private dinners.

The family suite can accommodate four guests and includes a private swimming pool and the use of a private vehicle with guide and tracker team.
