Ngala Tented Camp
Timbavati Game Reserve
Ngala Tented Camp is an intimate and tranquil safari getaway that celebrates the romance of African nights under canvas. Situated in a private reserve of the same name, which shares unfenced borders with South Africa's famed Kruger National Park, game drives from the camp explore an untouched Big Five wildlife wonderland famed for its lion encounters and vast herds of buffalo, as well as sightings of the rare African wild dog.
One of the few luxury tented camps in the area, Ngala is wild and remote, with animals walking freely through the camp and the camp's rim-flow swimming pool situated along the river bank so guests can view wildlife in the thickets while splashing in its cooling waters.
The excellent game viewing experience is complemented by other activities such as stargazing, moonlit riverbed dinners and bush sundowners. Constructed with a light footprint and reflecting &Beyond's ethos of sustainable luxury, the camp has been carefully designed to minimise environmental impact. The latest technology in insulation materials, extensive use of LED lighting and most energy efficient air conditioning and hot water generating solutions have resulted in significantly reduced energy requirements for the camp.
Six tented suites offer exclusive comfort and warm hospitality, combined with the thrill and immediacy of big night sounds and close natural encounters. Overlooking the seasonal Timbavati riverbed, the stylish interiors feature a fusion between easy living and contemporary design. The overall essence is undeniably African, with warm, earthy tones used throughout. Al fresco showers, private wooden decks and an open design invite the wilderness inside, creating an exclusive retreat where the ultimate in simple sophistication combines with exceptional outdoor experiences.
