Our family spent two nights at Ngoma and rate it highly. Not only were the views of the plains and the herds of animals amazing, but the food was absolutely gourmet! Breakfast was a feast, including a great "starter" buffet.The service at the lodge and our guide was terrific. The room was lovely. And the sunsets were spectacular!

First, one of the most amazing welcomes to a resort I have ever experienced. It was like a family member welcoming me home after a long journey. Judy, our host, knew all of our names and greeted us as accordingly. The view from the main and guest lodges were postcard worthy. And the lodges, so fabulous! The beds, heavenly. The... More

Beautiful setting, arrived at sunset to see plenty of game on the plain in front of the lodges. The lodges were private and very comfortable. Staff are friendly and service good. Our guide, Bevan was great, filled two full days with lots of memories. Saw plenty of game, including a cheetah, lioness hunting and a pride of 9 lions, all... More

it was our first safari and from the outset we had a wonderful relaxing time in the lodge with the chance to see many animals and birds. Fantastic location overlooking the river and flood plain. Super

We visited last month. Your first view from the lodge (see the picture) is breathtaking -- and it stays that way. We had a great driver/guide names Bevin (sp?) who was extremely knowledgeable, so try hard to catch what he's saying from the front seat. He took us on a river safari (boat ride!) which got us so close to... More

The lodge offers a stunning view of the Chobe River and surrounding plains. The cottages are quite luxurious, private and exceeded our expectations. After two nights, the staff new us by name and catered to all our requests, including baking a special dessert at our request. Definitely one to return to.

A return visit and we arrived with high expectations for a wonderful stay - in every respect these were met or exceeded! Ngoma has outstanding luxury rooms set in an amazing location. Obliging, friendly staff attended to our every need; Chef Samson in particular went out of his way to imaginatively accommodate dietary restrictions. We were truly privileged to experience... More

We visited Ngoma Safari Lodge recently and had a sensational three days. From the simply mesmerising view of the Chobe River that greets you when you enter the main lodge, to the luxury room with similarly wonderful views (including giraffe grazing on trees 50 metres away from our window), to the brilliant hospitality and service - Ngoma is just a...

Walking into the lobby area is extremely impressive. The views are amazing from the common areas as well as the rooms. After two days at bush camps, it was nice having a hair dryer, internet, and a plunge pool. However, we were only there for 2 nights and we were kept so busy, the only time we had to spend... More

While in Africa we stayed at four different Safari Lodges. Ngoma was far and away the very best. The best accommodation - a beautiful, comfortable bungalow with a large picture window overlooking a river delta, our own private relaxing area with plunge pool. A very luxurious bathroom.
