Nothing but great things to say about this lodge! Food, the rooms, the game drives, the views..... For the avid or pro photographer you can get amazing shot while have breakfast on the lodge deck. Great location. Well worth it

Everything is so comfortable and the hospitality exceptional. Don't miss the river trip. Seeing a family of elephants swimming across the river from barely 4 metres away was something I shall never forget. It is also a great escape from the heat of the day being on the river. The guides a flexible with how you plan a day and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and could have easily stayed for 3 more. From the time we were picked up in Kasane to when we left we felt so special. Greeted at the resort by the Manager (Kiddy) and staff when we arrived treated like long lost friends or family during the entire stay. The accommodation is first class,... More

Three days at Ngoma Safari Lodge is a real treat.

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
