If you love walking safaris into the pulse of the Kruger National Park bushveld, then you will love the idea of a five-star luxury safari under canvas at AndBeyond Ngala Tented Camp, nestled deep in the beautiful Timbavati Nature Reserve. Private, exclusive and exceptional big five game viewing.
It’s quite the place to be for wildlife lovers who seek a bit of luxury and being surrounded by trees and birds. This is sophisticated camping, in 9 elegant tents raised on wooden decks in the shady trees to decrease their impacts on the environment. At &Beyond Ngala Tented Camp, luxury is a vital part of the equation and these canvas suites promise aircon, fans, electric blankets, delightful outside showers and bathtubs with bush views, and large gauze screen doors and windows.
Meet with fellow guests on the main deck for a swim in the pool that seems to link to the riverbed and chill in the comfy lounge later after a grilled dinner around the fire. Wildlife viewing goes on all day from any spot in the camp and guests can indulge in a bit of star gazing later. This is classic South African accommodation close to nature in a refuge of colonial comfort.
Ngala Tented Camp is a haven of solitude in the famed Whie lion habitat of Timbavati and more than 40 different species of animals run wild in their fantastic 75 000 ha of freedom. See buffalos, lions, giraffes, wildebeest, impalas, baboons, cheetahs, leopards, huge soaring raptors, anteaters and warthogs too. Your game drive goes off road so you get to see more wildlife than you would in the main Kruger region.
Everything is centred about the safari and seeing wildlife, so a bush walk is the ultimate activity at Ngala – a sensory experience where you completely tune in to your wild surrounds. Amazing!
For many lucky guests, the highlight of their Ngala tented Camp safari is tracking regal Wild Dog packs and learning their team dynamics. It is an exhilarating experience simply watching these beautiful animals hunt information, sharing their kill.
Listen to the fantastical stories of the bush from your experienced guides and trackers during your once in a lifetime experience of the Kruger National Park. Your tracker may find the white lions so famous in Timbavati and you can learn what makes them so unique.

Nearly 15 000 ha of natural beauty brimming with wildlife and meaning – and adventuring off road means you get to see more than usual.
Arrive in camp for a dip in the sparkling plunge pool and a delicious dinner in the dry riverbed, set up perfectly with lanterns and special table settings for each group. Or formal dining on the deck beside warming braziers and atmospheric lanterns. The rim flow poll seems to connect to the waterhole where elephants and bird species love go visit and drink, curious about the guests who observe them. End an exciting day with a massage at the spa with a view.
A time to replenish heart and soul at Ngala Tented Camp and a time to become part of the AndBeyond anti-poaching campaign just by going out on a rhino tagging experience. Participate in the once in a lifetime darting and capture of a rhino, watching a veterinary team notch the ear for research purposes or remove the horn painlessly to prevent poaching.
Or visit a local community to see how ecotourism benefits can uplift people living beside the game reserves. Most of the staff come from these communities and the lodge is involved in the establishment of schools, local business, and healthcare for the people.
Your exclusive night in the Ngala Treehouse will be part of the contribution to this project so go on, pamper your partner in this remote treehouse refuge, sleeping alone in nature on a timber platform under the stars. What an innovative design, calling you to stay longer if you can.
