About andBeyond Ngala Tented Camp

Located in the northeastern-most corner of South Africa, right on the edge of the famous Kruger National Park, the AndBeyond Ngala Tented Camp offers one of its continent's most-classic safari camping experiences. Each of the nine canvas tents here overlooks the Timbavati River, a seasonal waterway that draws Africa's iconic animal species. The Ngala Tented Camp boasts some of the traits that are an integral part of camping in the African bush: spacious canvas-sided tents, lanterns, mesh windows and shaded wooden porches. Guests are often able to sit right on their tent's private porch and see the wildlife. AndBeyond mixes these essential elements with luxurious features and simple, contemporary designs to create a safari experience that is at once charming and comfortable. Each of t ...
Located in the northeastern-most corner of South Africa, right on the edge of the famous Kruger National Park, the AndBeyond Ngala Tented Camp offers one of its continent's most-classic safari camping experiences. Each of the nine canvas tents here overlooks the Timbavati River, a seasonal waterway that draws Africa's iconic animal species. The Ngala Tented Camp boasts some of the traits that are an integral part of camping in the African bush: spacious canvas-sided tents, lanterns, mesh windows and shaded wooden porches. Guests are often able to sit right on their tent's private porch and see the wildlife. AndBeyond mixes these essential elements with luxurious features and simple, contemporary designs to create a safari experience that is at once charming and comfortable. Each of the nine tents has large gauze screens that let in the breezes and scents of the African bush while keeping the interior clean and pristine. A ceiling fan and air conditioning unit help keep guests cool while they are in their tent. Wireless internet access is also available. The tents are placed on a wooden platform. Wood and stone paneling divides the living space, creating separate areas for sitting, dining and sleeping. In short, each of the nine tents here has all the space and all the features of a suite in a fine hotel. But even the finest hotel cannot put you within earshot of lions, elephants and leopards. The main reason to come to Ngala is to see the wildlife. The "big five" animals are all here: Cape buffalo, leopards, rhinos, elephants and lions. Guests can take part in twice-daily game drives, safari hikes and even nighttime drives to see Kruger's nocturnal animals. With Ngala's skilled guides, you are virtually guaranteed to get snapshots of an amazing array of wildlife. Ngala has traversing rights that cover more than 15000 hectares of Kruger's most remote areas. Ngala offers more than safari adventures. Guest can treat themselves to a massage on a purpose-built sala that overlooks the river. They can also choose to dine at various spots around the camp, including in the riverbed. The camp has a lap pool as well. Gourmet meals are provided, as is one of the most quintessential (but overlooked) parts of a classic safari: traditional afternoon tea. Ngala is an ideal choice for luxury lovers, safari aficionados and adventure seekers. Conscientious travelers will also appreciate AndBeyond's approach to the environment. The camp was built with minimal impact to the environment and the safari practices do not interfere with the lives of Kruger's wildlife. In short, the Ngala tented camp offers the best of everything: luxury, adventure, nature and environmental friendliness.
