Set in the Chobe Forest Reserve just outside the Chobe National Park, Ngoma Safari Lodge has an elevated view of the legendary Chobe River and game-rich Caprivi floodplains. The classic thatched lodge, swimming pool and various viewing decks are superbly placed amongst magnificent baobab trees to best showcase the magical scenery. Game drives in the Forest Reserve or Chobe National Park take place each morning and afternoon although a full day can be spent game viewing in Chobe and on the Chobe River with a picnic lunch in a wild and beautiful spot.

Game viewing in Chobe is exceptional during the dry winter months July - October. Moreover, being based in the Forest Reserve allows guests to enjoy guided walking safaris and night game drives, two activities not allowed in the national park. Ngoma Safari Lodge is a member of a community trust established to help the local community benefit from tourism and resource management. Visit the Mabele Village or the village's primary school for an opportunity to interact with the local community.

Traveller Reviews

  • Ngoma Safari Lodge is a jewel of a boutique establishment. Samson, the chef, served up really good dishes. Animal sightings in Chobe were plentiful. Staff were very friendly.

    Doris Ng, October 2015
  • We loved Ngoma. It was bit of a trek to get from the river and park to the lodge but it was worth the drive! Ngoma was one of the most charming places we have been. The views were spectacular!

    Ketan Bhindi, May 2015
  • Ngoma was so charming and had the most amazing views even from each of the rooms, the food was tasty and it had good ambience, and they were extremely accommodating and really packed in the game drives. When we got in later in the afternoon around 4 pm they still offered to take us on a later short afternoon game drive, then we did a full day the next day as well as a night drive, and the last morning offered to do a short morning drive as well before our transfer at 9h30.

    Sabina Mehra, July 2014
  • Ngoma was very very nice and had a wonderful location and fantastic guide. The lodge is very new and the rooms extremely comfortable. Game viewing was great and so are the people.

    Denise Ching, November 2013
  • Ngoma was by far the most amazing place I've ever stayed. It was beautiful, the staff was helpful, and the food was delicious! Our safari guide, Bevan, was incredibly knowledgable and I couldn't have asked for a better safari experience.

"I love the expansive views over the floodplains, especially when the river is full and the small touches from a very hospitable team made me feel a sense of luxury but in an understated way. Its a little further to access from the airport and boat jetty but its worth for the views, privacy and lack of other vehicles when driving in the otherwise busy park."
