Ngala’s eco-friendly tented camp
Ngala Private Game Reserve, famous for being 1 of the 1st privately owned properties to be incorporated into Kruger National Park, has a new and improved tented camp.
The refurbished tents are eco-friendly with double insulated canvas, which means less heating and cooling is needed. The air conditioners are energy efficient, as are the LED lights.
The camp is set in a place of tall trees and thick bush – so each tent and its ‘sala’ are completely private (the sala is a place where you can reflect in peace, retreat, read, meditate or be quiet with nature).
But there’s more feel-good stuff here. Ngala is part of the Kruger now, but as a private game reserve within it, it pays South African National Parks an annual lease fee. This is used to fund conservation initiatives in smaller parks around the country.
Also, Ngala has exclusive traversing rights, which means visitors have a massive stretch of wilderness to themselves.

Apart from the tented camp, the original safari lodge remains extremely popular.
Ngala is owned and run by &Beyond, 1 of the top safari operators in Africa and India.
