Welcome to Ngala Beach Lodge

Ngala Beach Lodge

The lodge is a welcoming place and radiates peace and tranquility. We offer comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated rooms and chalets, friendly personal service, great food and awe inspiring views of both the lake and the Vipya Mountains. Ngala Beach Lodge is unique in that it offers a view of both sunrise and sunset over the water.

The Lodge which was formerly known as “Heidi’s Hideout” was started in the early 1980’s by Heidi (Executive rooms and part of the main lodge). She then met Peter Brandon and they acquired the property adjacent to Heidi’s (currently the dormitory and part of the main beach) where they lived and from where they managed the lodge.
In the mid 1990’s the whole property was taken over by Francois and Marco Coetzee and Craig Barlow and they changed the name to “Ngala Beach Lodge”. Marco, who was based at the property in the early days, did extensive alteration and additions to the main lodge and built the “Soggy Kwacha” beach bar. They then also acquired the adjacent property on which was built the current owner’s house and on which they built the three Deluxe cottages overlooking the main beach.
Chris and Sandi bought the lodge in May 2008. They have jointly done a lot of work at the lodge, in the areas of refurbishment new development and staff training to bring the lodge up to the standard that it is now. Business has been growing steadily over the past 7 years and they have developed a great rapport with guests, a number of whom have become regular visitors and good friends. Others from further afield keep in touch using email and social media.
