We have just returned from Safari in Botswana and we stayed three nights in Ngoma. It was an island of luxury. The views are awe inspiring, each individual amazing cabin have a 180 degree view of the plains through large windows. The game drive Guides were very knowledgable and vehicles comfortable and all meals were well presented and so delicious.... More

We visited in August of 2014 and had an incredible time. The lodge and rooms are beautiful with amazing views. There are always animals down by the river so we always had our binoculars with us while we were around the lodge. The rooms have incredible outdoor areas with a private patio, outdoor showers, and private plunge pool. The game... More

We stayed three nights at this outstanding lodge. Exceptional staff attended to our every need. Rooms are really well appointed and comfortable; private "sit" pool and outdoor shower are welcome additional amenities offering great views of an absolutely wonderful vista. Thoroughly enjoyed all meals especially appreciating the care taken to cater imaginatively to (pre advised) dietary restrictions. Friendly, competent and... More

We visited Ngoma in December of 2013, the lodge is absolutely stunning with amazing views of open planes with wild life blossoming every where you look! We were lucky enough to see 4 of the big 5 on our guided safaris which Ngoma had organised for us. Our ranger was very knowledgeable on the wild life and tracking animals which... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Ngoma Safari Lodge after having spent some time in the Okavango Delta. The lodge is located on the top of a hill overlooking the Chobe River. The views are absolutely stunning with zebra, giraffes, etc. within viewing distance. Each suite is luxurious with an outdoor patio and plunge pool. The staff, especially... More

Great camp in the sense of location and accommodations. The food is average. Service is outstanding. John and Babs make sure you are comfortable and your stay memorable. Game drives are limited to a couple or roads along the river and opportunities to see game is a hit or miss. Since the game drives here are in the national park,... More

Ngoma Safari Lodge is simply gorgeous. We spent two nights there and wish it had been longer as the lodge offers beautiful accommodations and opportunities for relaxation in addition to various activities, including night drives and whole-day river cruises. While kids are welcome, it is a more adult oriented lodge which can be better appreciated by grown-ups. The lodge is... More

From the moment my 12 year old niece and I arrived, we felt at home. The accommodations were perfect. Best possible views from the bedroom windows. Felt like we were right there among the animals. The staff were wonderful and made our stay very special. Our guide Solomon was patient - it was our first safari - and went above... More

From the moment you arrive they make you feel at home. The rooms overlook the Chobe River for great game viewing. Sit on your balcony or take a game drive. The itinerary they planned was terrific. We had game rides, picnics by the river, sundowners by the river and again by the fire, a fantastic boat trip and the BEST... More

I visited Ngoma Safari Lodge in Chobe with a friend in early July. The lodge is on a ridge overlooking the Chobe river/floodplains. What a stunning place! The thatched rooms and main lodge/bar/eating areas are wonderful, with 180 degree views over the river. Accommodation is spacious and well appointed. Each room has a patio with plunge pool. Ours was drained... More
