South Africa Lodges Vacation Rentals - Luxury Thatched Roof Villa on the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking the Kruger National Park.
This luxury, thatch-roof house overlooks the Kruger National Park and is situated on the scenic banks of the Crocodile River.
It can accommodate ten guests in five private rooms with en-suite bathrooms. Three large bedrooms are housed upstairs and two downstairs. The upstairs bedrooms lead to a large viewing deck and bar area where visitors can enjoy a sunset drink while watching a variety of bird and animal life. All the rooms enjoy air conditioning, a ceiling fan and an en-suite bathroom. Furthermore, an exceptional view of the Crocodile River from each and every bedroom makes for an incredible African memory.
Experience game drives in the Kruger National Park, walks amongst wild animals, stargazing in the African sky, open air dining and bird watching. This property is located within the fences of the Kruger National Park and visitors, while lounging in the private swimming pool, have spotted all the Big 5. Sitting on a riverbed where the bird-life is magnificent … lie on the deck and hear the distinct call of the African Fish Eagle.
The house is part of a large resort just 4 hours drive from O.R. Tambo (Johannesburg) Airport and is close to the Swaziland and Mozambique borders. Daily activities can be arranged such as Elephant Back Safari, Micro-lighting, Game Drives, Quad Biking and Tiger Fishing. All of this offer guests a superior living environment enhanced by an impressive Big 5 safari experience. Guests have full access to Tennis courts, swimming pools, a restaurant, pub, beauty salon, entertainment area, bat houses, bird hides, children’s game center, a convenience store, putt-putt course and much more.
Enter the Kruger National Park through the Crocodile Bridge Gate on a self-drive or an open-vehicle game drive organised directly with Crocodile Bridge. The more adventurous can experience the unique thrill of a foot safari accompanied by an armed game ranger and Shangaan tracker who will walk the bush with you, show you how to stalk impala and the short-sighted rhinoceros or chuckle at the antics of a family of monkeys.
Often you do not need to go for a drive as most of the game can be seen from your private patio. All day, relax around the rim-flow infinity swimming pool with its crystal clear water, or put your feet up with a good book on the special viewing deck overlooking swaying riverine vegetation - the natural habitat for elephant, buffalo, hippo, leopard and an abundance of buck.

Our party of 10 stayed for 5 nights. The purpose of the visit was to celebrate a 50th Birthday with friends and family ( From South Africa, Scotland, England and Australia) The accommodation was perfect for our group. There were 5 rooms each with separate bathrooms. 3 rooms were twin and 2 doubles which suited us very well as we were a mix of couples and singles. The property was very well maintained both inside and out. The self catering facilities were excellent. The day we arrived there was a herd of elephants passing through literally at the bottom of the garden! There were always hippos, buffalo and waterbuck in the area. We also saw a cheetah early one morning but sadly missed the pride of lions with cubs the previous day. We arranged a full day game drive in a private vehicle and a Kruger sunset drive. Both were arranged via the desk at Ngwenya Lodge and this facility was well organised. We are planning a return visit next year. Carolyn Glasgow, United Kingdom
Auf unserem Family-Südafrika-Trip mit 10 Personen hatten wir einige Nächte in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Fantastische Umgebung und drei der Big 5 schon zum Frühstück. War nicht unser erster Aufenthalt in Ngwenya, aber die beste Unterkunft bisher. Wir werden definitiv wieder kommen :-) Udok Ballrechten, Germany
I had the opportunity to stay here for a week -I cannot say enough good things about this rental. The location on the Crocodile River was phenomenal, and the house was very well maintained (the infinity pool was one of the cleanest we've encountered in a rental) I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to any other traveller. The only thing I would rate as just "Good" instead of "GREAT" would be the lack of instruction for using the appliances. If you are coming from the US, there is a bit of a learning curve with the stove and washing machine. However, this did not take away from our experience. In fact, we look forward to booking our next stay! Randy Alexandria, Virginia
