“Five Star Venue, Five Star Treatment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

My husband and I just stayed for three nights at the Ngoma Safari Lodge at the end of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful way to end a most wonderful trip. Cathy and the rest of the staff took care of us in every way. We enjoyed romantic dinner under the Baobab tree one night and with the rest of the guests and Cathy another evening. Viewing the Sable, Impala, Giraffes, Warthogs, Elephants and more at their watering hole from our private plunge pool was a dream. Highly recommend!

We had the most wonderful experience in Ngoma Safari Lodge.When we arrived there we were treated to the most eclectic overlay of food.The luxurious rooms made the stay even more wonderful.The food was the best we have ever had on a safari.Our guide was very knowledgable and knew a lot about the animals,flora and fauna.There are lots of elephants in Chobe National Park.The managers made the stay really wonderful.The baobab tree in front of the lodge with hundreds of animals and the setting sun made it the most memorable sunset for us.We will back soon.

I am so glad we chose to begin our honeymoon at Ngoma Safari Lodge. Having read the reviews, we knew it would be good, but in reality this place exceeded all expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for the team, who always provided service with a smile, and the views and food were utterly spectacular! Stanley, our guide, was amazing and so knowledgeable. We were even welcomed by a family of elephants who visited our plunge pool one night for a drink! We were made so welcome and felt very spoilt. We have absolutely no complaints and could not fault a thing! I only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much to Cathy, Stanley and all the staff for everything. We had a magical time.

Andrew and Naomi Todd.

Everything about this stay exceeded expectations. The setting is breathtaking. The food choices and quality were as good as the best. All of the staff whether managers cleaners security staff or wait staff were happy helpful and professional. The large rooms which are separate huts are very well laid put and take maximum advantage of the setting which is on a edge overlooking a floodplain. When we arrived and looked through the reception and dining areas an elephant joined the welcoming party. Thanks to Babs John and every one of the staff who made this a fantastic place to stay. The managers were determined to help us have a great experience and showed concern for us as if we were old friends Our guide, Stanley was brilliant. He was informative, gentle, humorous, passionate about imparting knowledge and looked after us very well. we could recommend this confidently as a great place to stay and explore a beautiful park.

We were in Ngoma safari lodge just before the new year. It was a fabulous experience. The room was perfect with a marvelous view (we were in the room no8, at the extremity of the lodge, and we had the pleasure to see giraffes when we woke up…the food was really good due to the difficulty to have fresh food.The safaris were well arranged,with lots of animals, even if you have to pass 15 min before arriving in the nation park.
The staff was very kind with us, especially, Babe and John, the managers. they manage to arrange us a special boat cruise just before leaving the lodge whereas it wasn't planned…
and take us back to the lodge because our flight has 5 hours late instead of leaving us at the airport….be sure that you are in good hands when you arrive there.ENJOY

You walk through the foyer to the eating/lounge deck and the view opens up to a scene from Out of Africa. It doesn't get much better than that! This fairly new lodge is well run by warm and friendly staff, and the guides are super. The view includes a vast expanse of the area including a water hole that has many visitors (water buck, antelope, baboons) and Namibia, and heard lions at night. Dinners were nice in the open air deck. The safaris in the park were spectacular.
