Ngoma has it all, as far as we are concerned. Great food, great hosts, great service, great accommodations, great game drives and guide. What's not to like? Our only slightly negative comment concerns the distance to the National Park, and the limitation of no off road driving a inside the park. Still, though, plenty of good game experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of Ngoma Safari Lodge following your recent stay. Limitations of no off road driving within the park are there for the safety and security of our guests, which is always our top priority.

Looking forward to your return

Best Regards
Jonathan Hudson

Management - from the start they were patient, helpful, knowledgeable and overly accommodating. Knew exactly what we would need to enjoy our stay and made sure everything was prepared to make that possible.

Staff - Possibly the friendliest and professional staff we have come across in all our travels. Very impressed with the training they must receive in order to deliver such perfect service.

Guide - Our guide was named Johane or "Jo" - he was fantastic! A clear passion for the wildlife in Botswana was displayed throughout our travels with Jo even though it must be difficult for him not to "go through the motions" since he does this all the time. He was extremely professional and cautious when it came to our safety and was so cheerful that it made it nearly impossible to not enjoy any of the time we spent with him. We didn't want to have any other guides as we continued our travels through Africa!

Property - The property is kept perfectly. Just the right combination of luxurious amenities with authentic feel. Very clean with great views, we couldn't stop giggling on arrival with the feeling that we couldn't believe it was real!

Other - The food we had here was some of the best we had in our 3 week stay in Africa. Of all things, we may have enjoyed the burger the most!

Great to watch wildlife from a perch! Wildlife abounds and each day offers something unique and wonderful. Whether in your room or the lounge, you have a view of the watering hole where wildlife gathers. When you are in Africa, the purpose is usually for wildlife viewing. You don't even need to0 leave the property or comfort of Ngoma Lodge to experience this.So nice to have Wifi, too. Great service and snacks, too.

This lodge has an amazing views of the flood plains, is luxurious but decorated in a traditional African way. The food was excellent and the organisation very good. Our guide was from the area, he provided a history background that made the safari more interesting for us, took us to visit the village as we also wanted to see this as part of our trip to Botswana.
One key point is that we were not bitten by mosquitos, the lodge is not close to water, if you are highly sensitive like me this is important.
