Thoroughly recommend Ngoma we had three nights there along with our teenage sons. The views from the terrace were incredible and even at night it was slightly floodlit and saw lions chasing a giraffe as we were sipping on our pre dinner drinks. The accommodation was very comfortable and the airconditioned rooms were much needed after staying for six nights... More

Ngoma was the last stop on our two week African trip. It is located above the flood plain on the Chobi River with sweeping views of the plains and Namibia in the distance. Our hosts, Babs and John were welcoming and attentive, the staff gracious and friendly. There are about 8 private lodges, all roomy and luxuriously appointed. The private... More

This was the best lodge during my trip to Botswana. Babs and John treated us so kindly. Our ranger MK was very knowledgeable and had a wonderful gentleness. When we arrived the staff was waiting to greet us. By the end of lunch all of the staff knew our names. During lunch we got a call from our Zimbabwe lodge... More

10 of us had the privilege of staying at this lodge for three nights last month and everyone enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms and lodge overlook the Chobe river with the plains of Namibia beyond. Each room (you each have your own separate building) is well laid out and comfortable. You have a great view from your bed... More

We recently visited Ngoma Safari Lodge(NSL) in Botswana next to the Chobe National Park(two couples, Sept. 17 for three nights).The facility is an outstanding design and it's location maximizes the viewing of all animals on the Chobe River and savannah for all their guests. However, the managers and staff provide all the functions that make the stay a "Five Star... More

The lodge is situated on a rise overlooking the Chobe River running through the savannah. It is very special indeed. It is a very large and long vista looking into Namibia. Our lodge room had the same view. It was spectacular to wake up to in the morning. The room itself was very comfortable if a bit awkwardly designed in... More

This was the last lodge on our trip and the best of all. The staff are so warm and welcoming, seeing to your every need. The food is excellent.

The room was top shelf. Spacious, private, well-appointed, including air conditioning, which almost seemed over the top, but we weren’t complaining. Service was outstanding. The camp managers were attentive and had good memories about our needs. The food was very good. The setting spectacular. Our only complaint is that we spent one night at this lodge.
