      From arrival to departure was just amazing. A birthday celebration with my children and grandchildren turned out exactly the way I envisioned it, thanks to Ngululu Bush Lodge! The view, the spacious facilities, the service all get 100% plus. We all wished we could stay an extra day... will definitely be arranging to return there I the near future. Our bush experience of choice from now on ♡

      I brought my family to Ngululu lodge with the idea of just using it as a base to explore Mabalingwe. After the weekend was over, I realized that we spent most of our time at the house itself. It has such a nice deck and living area that the lazy tourist (such as myself) can really just relax and enjoy the bush from the house.The house is extremely well appointed, with almost any imaginable, small kitchen appliance one can think of.Owner & staff were very helpful & friendly, assisting with activities during our stay and making us feel comfortable.
