Ngala Tented Camp
Peering out onto the banks of the seasonal Timbavati River from the shelter of dense indigenous trees, nine tented suites offer a tranquil escape for city dwellers and travellers alike.
The sights and sounds provide a gentle backdrop, as the ancient patterns of African life carry on around you. Every step unveils a new surprise, whether it’s a dainty impala tripping down the Camp path or a smart detail in the clean lines and flamboyant styling of the guest areas.
Mounted on raised platforms, large gauze screen windows let the bushveld breeze into your tent, stirred and amplified by swirling overhead fans. Stone partitions and wooden sides carve cosy niches in the spacious suite. An oversized bathtub awaits on a wooden platform, where gauze screens open up to the outside and give the effect of bathing in a giant leafy chamber. An outside shower invites and entices from the embrace of a thick stone screen.
Set between riverine forest and the sandy bed of the Timbavati River, extensive decks give front row views of game wandering down to drink. A rim-flow pool mimics the contours of the riverbed, inviting you in for a refreshing dip, while a tranquil massage sala adds a touch of pure indulgence. At night, the stirring scents of Africa’s famous spices waft up from a meal shared in a spectacular setting.
The days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife encounters and the nights to spoil you with the romance of Africa.
Sophisticated ‘camping’ at its best, Ngala Tented Camp’s nine luxurious safari tents overlook the banks of the seasonal Timbavati River.
True African hospitality lies at the core of &Beyond's lodges and camps throughout the continent.
