"A place of hidden gems"

"The food, both breakfasts and dinners, were all delicious and beautifully presented. The boma dinner experience, lit by paraffin lamps under a starry sky, was exceptional. Some stunning photos were taken. A morning walk in the bush with Devin, who's immense knowledge of the flora and fauna is commendable, is highly recommended.Cellphone and WiFi signal are currently limited, which may be an issue for those who need to be connected at all times...."

"We expected more from Ngama tented camp. The host, Devon, was very friendly and tried to assist us in every way. The accommodation is not like presented on the website! The tents was not very well maintained and had no extra blankets for those cold nights although a heater was supplied but when switched on the whole room was lit up. The food was also cold and not up to standard. Otherwise not too bad for the bush. Oh, and the main gravel road was in a terrible condition! The game drive at a nearby private reserve was excellent and highly recommended!"

"We spent 2 days at Ngama over 2013 new years eve. Devan the owner was such a lovely host and made us feel welcome and relaxed since we stepped out of the car. The chef Donald made a super memorable new years eve dinner around the boma, and the food was delicious - thank you very much!!!The tent was so private and secluded - we felt as if we were the only people in this whole Guernsey reserve - very well placed! The lodge and tent's interior in excellent, comfortable yet stylish.We would recommend Ngama for any nature lover that needs to relax, put their feet up and enjoy a break away from the busy city life!!"
