About Ngama Tented Safari Lodge

Ngama, meaning "Place of the Eagles" is a delightfully intimate, family-run tented safari lodge that offers a true African experience, where guests fall asleep to the sounds of the bush and are pampered with the warm-hearted service that embodies the soul of Africa.

Sharing borders with the renowned Thornybush and neighbouring the famous Kruger National Park, guests are invited to experience the exhilaration of Big 5 sightings or take part in some special interest safaris, such as walking or birding around the beautiful bushveld of Guernsey Private Nature Reserve.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the African sun, indulge in authentic traditional cuisine, head out on early morning game drives, or escape from it all by exploring the natural beauty of the bushveld from a hot-air balloon. Unwind and relax in one of our six modern, tented suites which offer a tranquil escape for city dwellers and travellers alike. At Ngama Tented Safari Lodge, we’ve taken the utmost care to ensure you experience pure relaxation accompanied by warm and welcoming African hospitality - it’s the little things that really count.

Enjoy the romance of canvas, with sounds of the wild and flickering lanterns lighting the camp grounds. Feel the bushveld breeze into your tent or enjoy a view of the great outdoors from the luxurious bathtub. Ngama is an intimate safari lodge with six modern, spacious tented chalets, designed after classic safari tents, but with all the modern amenities.

Our tented chalets have been designed to take advantage of their beautiful natural setting, while ensuring guests can enjoy plenty of privacy. Each tented chalet has its own en-suite bathroom with a bath, separate shower, an outside shower for those wanting a more natural bush wash, and a private deck.

The main lodge area is a comfortable place to relax and enjoy a drink or good book while admiring the birdlife around the waterhole, while the sun deck around the pool in the lodge area is the perfect place for those who just want to sit back, relax and enjoy the African sun.

Dinner and breakfast are enjoyed outside on one of the decks or around the fire on a chilly winter’s night. Our boma creates a truly memorable atmosphere, where guests enjoy dinner while taking in the sounds of the African bush. Where ever you chose to spend your time at Ngama Tented Safari Lodge, the experience is always completed with the warmest of African hospitality.

                  The food, both breakfasts and dinners, were all delicious and beautifully presented. The boma dinner experience, lit by paraffin lamps under a starry sky, was exceptional. Some stunning photos were taken. A morning walk in the bush with Devin, who's immense knowledge of the flora and fauna is commendable, is highly recommended.Cellphone and WiFi signal are currently limited, which may be an issue for those who need to be connected at all times....

                  We expected more from Ngama tented camp. The host, Devon, was very friendly and tried to assist us in every way. The accommodation is not like presented on the website! The tents was not very well maintained and had no extra blankets for those cold nights although a heater was supplied but when switched on the whole room was lit up. The food was also cold and not up to standard. Otherwise not too bad for the bush. Oh, and the main gravel road was in a terrible condition! The game drive at a nearby private reserve was excellent and highly recommended!

                  We spent 2 days at Ngama over 2013 new years eve. Devan the owner was such a lovely host and made us feel welcome and relaxed since we stepped out of the car. The chef Donald made a super memorable new years eve dinner around the boma, and the food was delicious - thank you very much!!!The tent was so private and secluded - we felt as if we were the only people in this whole Guernsey reserve - very well placed! The lodge and tent's interior in excellent, comfortable yet stylish.We would recommend Ngama for any nature lover that needs to relax, put their feet up and enjoy a break away from the...
