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. I had one particular dinner that compared to a meal in a world class restaurant. High accolades for the chef and his creativity. The setting is beautiful and the accommodations are... More

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. For the price and... More

Babs, John, staff and guide Makumba, made our 2 (too few) nights at their extraordinary lodge and Botswana's Chobe National Park, just outstanding. Nearly 1,000 photos attest to our 14-nights of experiences. Similar in style to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, the new (3 yr) camp offered exemplary services from fire side chats, cocktails at sunset and great food, to laundry... More

We visited in August of 2014 and had an incredible time. The lodge and rooms are beautiful with amazing views. There are always animals down by the river so we always had our binoculars with us while we were around the lodge. The rooms have incredible outdoor areas with a private patio, outdoor showers, and private plunge pool. The game... More

We stayed three nights at this outstanding lodge. Exceptional staff attended to our every need. Rooms are really well appointed and comfortable; private "sit" pool and outdoor shower are welcome additional amenities offering great views of an absolutely wonderful vista. Thoroughly enjoyed all meals especially appreciating the care taken to cater imaginatively to (pre advised) dietary restrictions. Friendly, competent and... More

We visited Ngoma in December of 2013, the lodge is absolutely stunning with amazing views of open planes with wild life blossoming every where you look! We were lucky enough to see 4 of the big 5 on our guided safaris which Ngoma had organised for us. Our ranger was very knowledgeable on the wild life and tracking animals which... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Ngoma Safari Lodge after having spent some time in the Okavango Delta. The lodge is located on the top of a hill overlooking the Chobe River. The views are absolutely stunning with zebra, giraffes, etc. within viewing distance. Each suite is luxurious with an outdoor patio and plunge pool. The staff, especially... More

Great camp in the sense of location and accommodations. The food is average. Service is outstanding. John and Babs make sure you are comfortable and your stay memorable. Game drives are limited to a couple or roads along the river and opportunities to see game is a hit or miss. Since the game drives here are in the national park,... More
