Harmoniously surrounded by glorious mountain ranges, spend two days falling in love with the Cape Winelands. Known for its local fine wines, decadent food and award-winner restaurants.
Your Big Five safari is at the all-inclusive Ngala Tented Camp, positioned within a private concession of the world-famous Kruger National Park. With no crowds and ethical off-roading allowed, go in search of the Big Five and the famous white lions of Ngala Private Game Reserve. Two mystical animals that have been quite literally written into the folklore by the local Shangaan people.
Lastly – Experience luxury under a blanket of stars at the Ngala Treehouse. A four-storey treehouse with private panoramic views of an untamed wilderness! This is a South African safari worth toasting too… best wishes from us!
