I stayed at Ngala Tented Camp toward the end of June, wrapping up a short business trip to South Africa. I flew on Federal Air from JNB to the Ngala airstrip and had a wonderful drive back to the tented camp where I was greeted warmly, given a short overview of my stay, and headed directly out on a game drive with our ranger, tracker, and four other guests. The camp was delightful, the food wonderful, and the surroundings supremely relaxing. I only regretted my wife & children were not with me. However, I have another business trip coming up in a few weeks and am taking my wife with me - and we will return to Ngala for three nights. Of all the places I've visited in the world, it's the one place where I'm most excited to take her. I saw all the wonderful animals and was absolutely amazed at how close we get to them in the trucks! I almost felt lucky to have brought a poor digital camera, because I only took a few photos and spent most of my time watching the animals without a camera to my face. At night, in the tents, you can hear animals shuffling around and calling out during the night - it's very peaceful. I'm excited to go back.
