Ngwenya Lodge is situated on the southern boundary of one of the biggest and best-known wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the Kruger National Park. At Ngwenya Lodge you can literally reach out and touch the Park because the resort is situated on the bank of the Crocodile River overlooking the game reserve from the wild side of the fence.
This means you have every opportunity to see all the same species (Big Five included) that occur in the game-rich southeastern section of Kruger without having to leave the lodge.
The evergreen riverine habitat of Ngwenya provides an excellent setting from which to enjoy great year-round game viewing and birding.
The River view chalets, set out over two kilometres of prime river frontage, overlook a scenic flood plain, which allows for magnificent views of a wide variety of animals as they come to the river to drink.
Along this frontage the big cats often hunt and each year a number of kills are seen.
Other chalets, called Dam/Bush view, are set back on the property and overlook tranquil dams or bush area, however, game viewing hides maKe game viewing on the riverfront accessible to all.
There are many accommodation options available from one to three bedrooms. All have fully equipped kitchens including microwave, lounge with TV, a veranda or patio, and air-conditioning and/or fans.
Resort amenities include three game viewing hides overlooking the river and the Kruger National Park; five outdoor swimming pools; a mini golf course; two tennis courts; trampolines and jungle gyms; a visitors lounge and a kids room; plus a games room with pool tables, table tennis, Playstation, limited DSTV and board games.
But it's really the wild environment and its inhabitants that the majority of guests spend their time interacting with. Apart from the large mammals - lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, elephant, rhino, hippo, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest and zebra, you can also spot baboon, Vervet monkey, impala, waterbuck and kudu.
On the smaller side, birdlife abounds with more than 300 species recorded; reptiles are plentiful and diverse and you can even see bat colonies emerging from their own ‘bat hotels'.
For activities of a more indulgent nature you'll enjoy excellent cuisine at the a la carte restaurant; review the day's excitement over a few ales or wines at the pub; pamper yourself at the beauty salon; or pick up supplies or souvenirs at the mini-shops on site.
For the most luxurious ‘wild' experience you could ever imagine, Ngwenya Lodge has to be on the agenda!
