Ngala Camp – Your Home Away from Home
For most of our FGASA programs and some of our International Study Abroad Programs we are based at our beautiful tented camp, called Ngala. Ngala means lion, and the camp did not get this name for nothing! It is situated within the boundaries of the Struwig Eco Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park.
Struwig Eco Reserve has its roots in the vision of Mr. P.C. Struwig. He and his wife were childless, but wanted to leave their property to the youth of South Africa, so in an act of unsurpassed generosity in his will he left the land (which is today known as Struwig Eco Reserve in his honour), and a few other properties in a trust managed by representatives of several youth and culture organizations.
His vision was that this land would serve as a place where the people of South Africa could come to relax and enjoy the African bush.
