Our three-night stay at this exquisitely beautiful safari lodge with extended family surpassed everyone's expectations. The villas were spacious and modern while still maintaining a rustic, natural feel. The views from the decks were to die for--beautiful African scenery and abundant wildlife everywhere, gorgeous sunsets. We were attended by a caring and attentive staff led by relief manager Cathy.

From the moment we arrived the managers John and Babs couldn't have been nicer and on top of things. Our room had a fantastic view and was very well appointed. The lodge was outstanding and the food was great. Our entire experience was terrific and far exceeded our expectations. We certainly recommend this to all who intend to visit Chobe.

We arrived at Ngoma to a wonderful greeting from the owners, Babs and John. The Lodge is stunning with a view directly out to the river basin. So many animals come through the area, and it is a fabulous place to sit and have breakfast or watch the sunset under the Balboa tree. Our guide was wonderful, the zebra, elephant,... More

We had a great experience at Ngoma, the staff was exceptional and the service was top notch. The place is decorated beautifully and well kept. Everyone has their own hut with a dipping pool (which the elephants love to drink out of on the porch), spacious rooms, bathrooms, mini fridge, great cleaning service every day.

My husband and I went to Ngoma for our honeymoon, and it was the last place we visited on our trip. Our travel agent sent us to Ngoma Lodge in Botswana because elephants are my favorite animal, and Botswana is known for having an abundance of them. Sure enough, there was (literally) tons of them, everywhere we went. So many... More
