Guests return again and again to this classic safari lodge with its timeless Out of Africa ambiance. A massive, double-sided fireplace dominates the lodge, opening onto a lounge filled with elegant comfy sofas and chairs on one side and a dining room on the other. Dinner at Ngala is quite formal (kids on their best behavior, please!); it's served in a reed-enclosed boma or a tree-filled courtyard lighted by lanterns with crystal and silver. Comfortably furnished air-conditioned
guest cottages, in mopane shrubveld with no views, comprise two rooms, each with its own thatch veranda.
