“Absolutely Extraordinary!”

The most enjoyable part of our trip! Absolute luxury in such an amazing part of Africa. Wonderful, friendly staff who made sure our stay exceeded all expectations. Awesome safari experience with Vinnie and Stanley being a constant source of knowledge and entertainment. Magical place!

A purely delightful safe accomodation with exquisite service second to none. The location and views are spectacular and we wanted more time there - book at least 3 days to enjoy everything on offer. A big special thanks to the new managers who went out of their way to surprise us with a congratulation gift and wishes after our engagement. We will be back! With the kids :)

Room Tip: all rooms have amazing views and are close to the main reception for meals and tour departures. make...

Our family travelled just before Christmas this year. Loved the little tree decorated for a festive touch! The accomodations were superb, as was the food service (loved the breakfast dishes Thanks Dorcas!). Each encounter with staff was top-notch, set by the example of owners. Thanks to Pulse Africa for arranging our time to include this stop in Botswana. We saw lots of elephants, baboons, hippos, and crocs! Fish eagles remind us of Bald eagles! Looking forward to their own boat for river tours soon. Maybe Bevin will guide?
Outstanding vista with views down to river and across into Namibia. Loved the Baobab trees giving shelter to so many nests of birds! We are truly blessed!

An experience of a lifetime from the moment we were welcomed into the camp's main lodge to our own private bungalow, the daily safari excursions - all added up to a spectacular experience of the wilds of Africa. The staff welcomed us with towels to remove the dust from our travels and a special welcome drink. The food and service from the staff was outstanding, the menus delightful and of course the view gazing into the river bottom and watching the herds of wildlife unforgettable. The staff made us feel so welcome and worked diligently to make certain our expereince was over the top. Our guide Vinny not only gave us two days of wildlife viewing but many laughs and drinks and the host Judy helped me to arrange another side trip to Capetown. I hope to make a return trip as I personnaly felt their committment to make this the trip of a lifetime and it was.,

My wife and I spent two nights at this amazing lodge and if we did it again would definitely spend more time there..The location overlooking the Chobe river combined with unique quality comfortable chalets were a welcolming experience and outstripped by far anything else we had experienced.The management and staff were willing to assist with our every need and provided unparralled service as well as quality meals and great safari experiences..I have seldomly seen such attention to detail especially in relation to the chalet amenities.Thank you Judy and your staff.

Standing at the entrance to Ngoma lodge and looking through the open doors and seeing the view!!! breath taking, and everything about the lodge is that, the rooms, outdoor shower and plunge pool.
Stephanie the manager, and all the staff very welcoming, friendly, could not do enough for us.
Stanley our guide the best ever. Very knowledgeable about the animals and birds.
He found 2 huge herds of Sable!! beautiful animals. We also came across a Jackal sitting by a bush, which turned out to be her den, as she encouraged her 2 pups to come out and play!!
We also saw vultures at a lion kill of a giraffe.
A wonderful place.
This was the third lodge we stayed at. First was Shindi Camp and then Camp Okuti in the Okavango Delta, thank you to Helen at Real Africa for suggesting and booking 3 wonderful places to stay, which we hope to go back to in the near future.
