We stayed for 3 nights at this incredible place and loved every second. The lodge is built on a rise above a plain and the Chobe River, right near the Namibian border. It is outside the National Park, but only a short drive away. The staff, service, management, views, rooms and food are outstanding. The rooms are well designed to... More

Trip of a lifetime. Kitty and all of her staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our visit a first class experience.

We're lucky enough to travel internationally fairly regularly, and this is the first time that I've felt the need to join TripAdvisor to endorse a hotel.

Ngoma offered up it’s best efforts – but failed to deliver a 5 star service. This is more of a camp than a lodge - the rooms are nice, but not sensational; The food fell a long way short of expectations and the staff were a mixed bag – some were keen and happy to help, others were uninterested and...
