Cherish evenings under the African night sky at Ngwenya Lodge, where the chuckle of hippopotamus' in the River below at dusk creates a melodious backtrack to the melting of the hot sun after another perfect day. The evergreen riverine habitat of Ngwenya provides an excellent setting from which to enjoy great year round game viewing and birding from the comfort of a chalet, or game-viewing hide. The River View Chalets, set out over two kilometres of prime river frontage, overlook a scenic floodplain, which allows for magnificent views of an area where the big cats often hunt and guests are treated to unsurpassed game-viewing opportunities. The Dam View Chalets provide guests with a peaceful view over one of the fresh water dams across the Resort, while the Bush View Chalets are set back on the property and overlook tranquil bushveld.
Situated along the lazy, winding Crocodile River; these units look out over the riverine habitat of the bushveld and offer guests a tranquil environment from which to enjoy private game-viewing. Collectively, these chalets share swimming pools and are well-equipped for family entertainment.
Each chalet is situated facing one of the ponds on the Resort, set back from the River. The chalets provide all the amenities to make your holiday comfortable and enjoyable, while spending quality family time fishing, or watching the animals on the floodplain from one of the game-viewing hides.
Enjoy the stridulating of beetles, or the calls of jackals from the heart of the bush at Ngwenya. Bush Chalets are set away from the Crocodile River and provide a peaceful escape in the bushveld. Guests can experience game-viewing along the Crocodile River from one of the game-viewing hides, or at the Restaurant viewing deck.
Dotted along the Crocodile River, these chalets provide excellent all year-round game-viewing as the animals gather on the floodplain. Enjoy an easy braai on a private patio and laugh long into the evening to the accompaniment of bushveld sounds.
Ngwenya has deservedly won the 'Resort of The Year' award more than once. It is exceptionally beautiful, ideally located, and the staff - from the entry gate to the housekeepers - are all incredibly friendly.
Not even one negative thing to mention. It's absolutely excellent in every aspect. We had wonderful weather while we were there. Beautiful, clean, and very well-equipped accommodation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the braai and bingo night. We enjoyed the viewpoints and saw quite a few different animals. Never a dull moment while being there. Highly recommended it! We're looking forward to the next visit.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with neat and clean accommodation with the friendliest staff, go to Ngwenya Lodge. This is our home away from home, with the best view into Kruger National Park.
An awesome establishment! Extremely well-managed with super friendly staff. The security guards at the gate are a real tonic and never fail to raise a smile with their personality and wit. The accommodation is spotless.
Excellent value for money. Beautiful resort. Friendly staff. Well maintained accommodation. Quality equipment. Secure location. Perfect view of animals in the Kruger National Park on the banks of the Crocodile River.- dinayjansen5, July 2018
