&Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge

The magic and mystery of Africa come alive in the colonial ambiance of elegant &Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge.

A timeless, unhurried atmosphere, combined with the quaint traditions of a bygone era, creates an aura of romance and nostalgia. This old-world haven in the midst of the African bush charms with its colonial antiques, silver cutlery and crystal glassware.

Here, style and grace mingle faultlessly with the rugged natural beauty of the setting, as manicured lawns give way to dense mopane thickets and wild animals saunter down to drink at the waterhole.

The lodge’s fun-filled WILDChild adventure programme makes it the ideal place for families.
