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.

At &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp, the days are designed to thrill you with intimate wildlife encounters and the nights to spoil you with the romance of Africa.

Morning Game Drive

As dawn breaks over the African bush, a gentle tap on your door will wake you to the delights of a new day. Your ranger will discuss what you hope to see that day over fragrant tea or coffee and morning biscuits or rusks. &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve is home to all of the Big Five, but is particularly well known for its prides of lion and occasional sightings of African wild dog, as well as large herds of elephant and buffalo. Venture out in search of leopard or lion sleeping off the exertion of the hunt from the night before.

Breakfast

Return to your lodge for a delicious breakfast, with platters of fruit and cheese followed by a selection of hot breakfast dishes. Choose from eggs, oats, waffles or a number of other options.

Lunch

If you wish, you can walk off your breakfast on a short walk near your camp, accompanied by your ranger, who will share his insight into the smaller animals and vegetation in the area before returning in time for lunch.

Afternoon Tea

Cool off with a refreshing dip in the sparkling swimming pool, indulge in an afternoon siesta or simply watch the wildlife from your private veranda. Over a late afternoon tea, your ranger will discuss what you hope to see during the afternoon/evening game drive.

Evening Game Drive

This game drive begins in the late afternoon and lasts until after dark, when spotlights are used for a glimpse into the nocturnal bush life. Drive down to the Timbavati River to watch the animals drink and bathe or watch out for predators getting ready for the hunt. Enjoy sundowners in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon.

Dinner

Return to your lodge for a mouthwatering dinner beneath the magnificent African sky.
