Introduction to Ngala
Ngala has two camps and one lodge. I stayed in all three. Click the buttons below to view my text-and-photo web pages on them:
Kruger National Park
Unlike most Kruger-associated private game reserves, Ngala doesn't merely border Kruger National Park, it's part of it.
However, Ngala is off limits to non-Ngala guests. One cannot enter or set foot in it simply because he paid the Kruger National Park fee.
Noted for leopards
Ngala is a fine locale for spotting leopards. Reason: That animal survives best in a dense-vegetation landscape, which characterizes Ngala.
Other game animals
Ngala also has the other four Big 5 animals: lions, elephants, rhinos, and buffalo. But don't expect to see many cheetahs. They are scarce here because they are more successful hunters in an open savannah-type than in a bushy landscape.
Ngala means "lion" in Shangaan. It was so named because Ngala is renowned for its lions.
