On our first game drive with host and ranger Xander we had a magical close encounter with a large male lion! Of course we saw a lot more animals like elephants, giraffes and antilopes. Back at the lodge Lory spoiled us with her amazing Italian/south African cooking skills. If you’re looking for a intimate yet adventurous safari experience ngalali is as good as it gets! We will be back!
Wonderful hosts , superb cooking, absolutely spoilt during our stay( which we extended) game drives were excellent- zander is a great guide. Rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious. Swimming pool a real bonus! Nothing was too much trouble!
We shouldn't tell anyone about Ngalali, because it is a hidden gem and we would love to keep it all for ourselves. But then, it is just too good not to talk about it. Everything (and I mean: Everything) was absolutely amazing. The hosts, Xander and Lorenza, were going above and beyond. Lorenza's attention to detail is incredible. Both, Lorenza and Xander are so generous, going the extra mile, always. All this made our stay a fantastic experience. The location is stunning, watching the elephants from the pool or the giraffe drinking from the waterhole right next to the braai plek - what an experience. When we heard a lion, not too far from the lodge, Xander immediately got the safari car out and drove us right to the lion. Top service - all inclusive. Rooms are super clean (with a pleasant smell), breakfast is 5-star, with excellent quality ingredients. On request, Lorenza will cook delicious Italian cuisine for the guests. Excellent recommendations for day tours were part of the service. I could go on raving and raving about Ngalali. Our only regret was that we had to leave. But we will definitely be back. Thanks Lorenza and Xander for making our holiday extra special!…
Amazing private stay. Wonderful hosts. Good food, very clean and comfortable rooms, lots to see and do. Definitely a recommend to anyone. (Mens se mense). Service is excellent all around, hosts are very clued up.
Our stay at the Ngalali was wonderful. Traveling with a baby can be tricky- but the hosts made sure that we were all well taken care of. It’s a great place to visit if you’re looking for a break from the city. Baby friendly, great hosts, amazing location-everyone has a good stay
