&Beyond has launched a new Specialist Safari at &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Expect the Unexpected at Ngala is a five-day experience offering guests the opportunity to tailor their own itineraries with a private ranger and tracker. The pace of the day is theirs to choose: how much walking, how long to be out on game drives and how much relaxation time they would like by their pool.
A truly unique element of the specialist safari is the opportunity to track big game on foot before an optional night spent sleeping out under the stars in the middle of the bush – all followed by a helicopter pick-up the next morning for an aerial tour of the Blyde River Canyon. Nightly accommodation is at either Ngala Safari Lodge or Ngala Tented Camp.
According to Alastair Kilpin, General Manager of &Beyond Ngala, “Today’s travelers are looking for a fuller experience from fewer places rather than the superficial at many. Ngala’s new Specialist Safari offers the opportunity to experience the African bush like nowhere else.”
“The fact that each itinerary is tailor-made ensures that our guests’ personal needs are taken into account so we can make the most out of their five days with us. The chance to sleep out in the wild Kruger bush is also not to be missed; and then imagine being picked up by helicopter at dawn and flown up to the world-class Blyde River Canyon. All this combined with hammocks out in the Timbavati River for a post-lunch siesta and unbelievable game-viewing opportunities guarantees that this is no ordinary safari,” he added.
