Ngala Private Game Reserve

Your exclusive access to Kruger


In the Shangaan language, ‘ngala’ means ‘lion’. It should come as no surprise that exceptional number of lion prides call the Ngala Private Game Reserve home. Ngala was the first privately-owned concession to be incorporated into the legendary Kruger National Park and boasts superb numbers of elephants and buffalos and exclusive ranging rights across 14,700ha of densely-populated wilderness.

The Big 5 roam in large numbers across Ngala, particularly in the case of the elephant and buffalo herds. Frequent leopard sightings are also bound to delight even the most expert safari-goer. The reserve’s varied habitat of mopane forest and acacia bushveld are home to a flourishing bird population that includes various owls and raptors. The endangered African wild dog has regularly denned in the reserve in recent years, with pups often seen in the summer months.

Visitors to Ngala will be enthralled by the interpretative Bush Walks and walking safaris tracking rhino, buffalo, and elephant or the night-time Game Drives that heighten your chances of seeing a predator on the hunt. Visitors will be startled by the reserve’s serenity and abundant wildlife while enjoying game-drives, moonlit riverbed dinners and star-gazing. Guests can reach the reserve via road transfer from the Ngala airstrip, Skukuza, and Eastgate Airport.
