Ngoma Safari Lodge represents the ultimate in all-inclusive private reserve experiences. The managers, Frances and Jared, not only have personnel game guide and hospitality experience, but offer a warm and friendly environment to enjoy the best Chobe has to offer. Any desire or request was met with an enthusiastic "Absolutely!". Situated on the Chobe River in Chobe National Park, Ngoma... More

Fantastic location on a high bank overlooking the Chobe River. Nice view ot the river flats full of wildlife. Luxurious lodge, very friendly staff, very relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately we stayed only for one night. Went on a very nice Sunset cruise on Chobe River with sightings of Elephants, Crocs, Hippos, Buffalos. Have to come back for more!

We very much enjoyed our time at Ngoma! The highlight was the wonderful staff and management. The food was delicious and we saw many animals on every driver. The river safari and picnic was one of our favorite days.

We were privileged to be part of a group staying at Ngoma. From the minute we arrived till we left nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Jarryd and Frances, the managers were outstanding. The chef, Samson made the most delicious meals and made mealtimes a wonderful family time. The views from the deck are just breathtaking... More

Volume, diversity, and sheer vast numbers of animal encouters charecterize NGoma. The guides were absolutely passionate. The mangers Jared and Frances met every need. They are not only committed to the guests, but to the NGoma community and the welfare of its younger people as well as the environment. Best hospitality and management on any continent.

The staff was excellent at Ngoma - extremely friendly and helpful. The lodge itself has beautiful views and good accommodations. The game drives were good, but not quite as exciting as some other locations in which trackers are more involved and are able to off-road. This is no fault to the lodge as it needs to follow the rules of... More

From the time we arrived at Ngoma we were treated by the staff and all personnel as if we were family. It's a beautiful property with lots of animals to see. We even had elephants visit us one morning and drank all the water out of our pool. It was an amazing experience!

A really friendly, low key & relaxing place with a lovely ambience. Staff and managers are terrific and accommodated anything we asked. Tim, our game spotting guide, was just awesome - very knowledgeable and informative.
