Rooms, food, staff, and service were as good as it gets but extra services provided by the manager put this resort in a class by itself. My luggage from South Africa never made it to Kasane and so I was left without any change of clothes at start of 2 week safari. Judy, the manager, had pants I bought in... More

This property is a wonderful place to come to for safaris. I had read one review which stated that it's safaris weren't as good because it wasn't in the park but just outside it. That was completely untrue. The park is not fenced in so the animals are in and around the park. There is a drinking place right in... More

Cath and her staff run a terrific place, plus they were so very helpful with everything. The lodge is lovely, the accomodations comfortable and beautifully appointed. The food was delicious. We only spent two nights--I wish it had been more!

We stayed 3 nights in May. First impressions were amazing! Truly stunning views, a lovely small lodge (I think 7 rooms), well positioned just outside the chobe park. The rooms are fantastic, they're massive, they include loads of facilities (outside and inside shower, bath, aircon, tea coffee etc) with great views. Food was good if not fantastic, the eggs benedict... More

Ngoma is an amazing property. Small with around 8 villas so the maximum capacity of the property is about 16 people. Have been to three other camps. Ngoma is a great visit and unique because of its access to the Chobe river. Spent three days with our Ranger Guide M.K. touring Chobe property (a Federal Park.) All viewings have to... More

What a delightful review, thank you for sharing. We are so glad that your stay was so perfect. The view is the most breathtaking aspect of Ngoma, and it seems that you saw some incredible wildlife.

The group I was leading had fabulous experience of elephants drinking out of their personal pool, wonderful vistas and the managers were fabulous! Thank you for all of the fabulous memories. Cuisine was exceptional and we felt more like long time friends when we departed, however sadly!

The time spent between morning and afternoons safaris could not be enjoyed more. the cabins are truly amazing and I could look at the view from the front steps over the savannah forever. Beautiful hosts, amazing food and quality accommodations - couldn't ask for more

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!

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.
