We spent two nights in February at Ngama Tented lodge for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect. Devin welcomed us with delicious cocktails (which were appreciated after the long road from Pretoria) and assisted us planing our activities. Our tent was simply perfect (loved the outdoor shower!!) which included everything we needed (including the amarula products which smelled really good). The food was simply delicious and we had a lot of choices (from salads, different meats, vegetables, etc.). We had dinner in a very romantic setting around a fire and the service was excellent. Everyone was making sure that we had everything we needed. Devin, one of the owners, was very attentive to our needs and always available to help and answer the tons of questions we had on the animals and the bushes. We did a bush walk with him one morning and we really enjoyed it. At one point we were surrounded by giraffes, zebras and wildebeests. The fact that the lodge is located on a private game reserve that is not a big five allowed us to walk around and feel safe which we really appreciated. For the big five game drives, we went to the adjacent game reserve (10 min. drive) and we had the chance to see all the big five and more. Overall, this is was a fantastic experience (for a lot cheaper than other lodges on private game reserves) and we will certainly go back for a longer stay.
