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. Food, accommodation and game drives far exceeded our highest expectations. MK our guide was very knowledgable and happy to show all that Chobe had to offer. He made this experience spectacular and we... More

We spent 3 nights at Ngoma last week. Our hut was amazing, the view from anywhere on the property was incredible (plenty of animal watching) and the service was great. The staff and management were very friendly and accommodating and Ocean was a wonderful guide on our game drives. We saw a lot of animals despite it being their low... More

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...

Ngoma Safari Lodge was filled with great food, wonderful room, and an attentive and personal staff. The drives into the bush was more than one could expect, especially seeing Leopard and Wild Dogs. Recommended one stay here an extra night to really feel the atmosphere.

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
