Ngala Tented Camp

Tucked away in the heart of Timbavati’s famed lion territory, Ngala Tented Camp is as wild as it is wonderful. They may call it “tented” but this is hardly glamping. Instead, nine stylish abodes are carefully scattered along the sandy remains of the river in one of the best game-viewing spots in Africa. Watch elephant herds help themselves to a drink from the pool. Tuck into your seventeenth meal of the day in the dry river bed. Then ready yourself for an exciting line-up of nocturnal characters in a post-dinner night drive – one of the great joys of a private reserve – warmed from the inside by a stiff vintage port.


Stuff we love

The pride of Timbavati

  • Once-in-a-lifetime sightings of the Birmingham Pride’s rare white lions.
  • Baring more than just your soul in the wonderful outdoor shower.
  • Watching the bush buck and nyala munching their way around the camp without a care in the world.
