We had a wonderful experience at Ngoma Safari Lodge with our needs anticipated and met at every turn from meals, beverages and safaris to beautifully washed and pressed laundry. The managers John and Babs made every effort to ensure that our stay was safe, pleasant and memorable. We went for amazing safaris each day at the Chobe National Park and... More

Most of the time you see photos of a hotel and then arrive and are sadly disappointed. Not so with Ngoma. Pictures cannot begin to capture the beauty of the savannah setting. The rooms are appointed and will meet the standards of the most discriminating of travelers. Babs, John and the entire staff work overtime to make sure that everything... More

We stayed at Ngoma lodge in March 2014,we agree with our fellow guest Don whose comments on Trip Advisor seem to cover all the main points, but we would like to further stress the wow factor of the initial vista which is awesome. The Lodge is run very professionally and with a friendly atmosphere by John and Babs, the perfect... More

It's hard not to repeat what has already been said, so I will try my best.... Most of the cars/taxis in the region are pretty shabby, so when we were met at Kasane airport in a clean/new van, we knew things were about to lift up a notch, or two. The ride to the lodge takes about an hour and... More

Many thanks to Babs, John and the team for such a memorable trip, Stanley's knowledge of his subject is second to none, he was the most interesting and patient guide, we all learnt a great deal. The lodge is beautiful, the pictures do not convey the atmosphere and magic of the place. Our highlight was watching the elephants grazing outside... More

My husband and I just stayed for three nights at the Ngoma Safari Lodge at the end of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful way to end a most wonderful trip. Cathy and the rest of the staff took care of us in every way. We enjoyed romantic dinner under the Baobab tree one night and with the rest... More

I am so glad we chose to begin our honeymoon at Ngoma Safari Lodge. Having read the reviews, we knew it would be good, but in reality this place exceeded all expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, who always provided service with a smile, and the views and food were utterly spectacular! Stanley, our guide, was amazing... More

Everything about this stay exceeded expectations. The setting is breathtaking. The food choices and quality were as good as the best. All of the staff whether managers cleaners security staff or wait staff were happy helpful and professional. The large rooms which are separate huts are very well laid put and take maximum advantage of the setting which is on... More
