Why we Love AndBeyond Ngala Safari Lodge

The fanciest treehouse on the continent comprising 4 tiers of sheer luxury complete with king size bed and open star gazing deck.

Intimate immersion in nature on guided nature walks to get up close and personal to wild animals – see the intricacies of the tiny critters around you too.

See all the Big 5 and more on early morning and evening game drives in Kruger when the animals move around, and the sensual delights of nature are enhanced.

Plush accommodation in eco chalets with enormous glass windows to invite the lush wilderness inside, and breakfasts on private decks are the ideal start to the day.

Conservation, anti-poaching, community education and sustainable tourism principles make Ngala the right safari lodge to choose.

Getting to Ngala Lodge Kruger Park

Self-drive from Johannesburg: take the N12/N4 through Witbank, then later left onto the R540 to Belfast (opposite the Engen Fuel Station). In Belfast, turn right towards Dullstroom and Mashishing (Lydenburg). Take the R40 towards White River. The entire distance is about 500km and 6 – 7 hours.

Fly with FedAir directly into the reserve, expensive but convenient.  Or take a scheduled flight with South African Airways to the Hoedspruit Airport (airport code HDS) and the lodge will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the lodge (about an hour’s drive, which is in fact an additional game drive).

Remember to chat to us about your add on holiday to this safari break – we customise essential bush-beach holidays between Kruger and Mozambique and we recommend a few full board nights in the Bazaruto Archipelago just because you need it.
