Guest Testimonials

Graeme and I would like you to know that our trip to South Africa was absolutely wonderful. The highlights were our time at Ngala Safari Lodge and the day trip from Victoria Falls across the border to Chobe National Park in Botswana to see the ANIMALS! Those outings were amazing! We also saw and learned so much about South Africa itself. It truly is a beautiful country.
- Graeme and Margaret Anne Robb
