Ngoma Safari Lodge (Chobe)

Ngoma Safari Lodge accommodation

Ngoma Safari Lodge offers accommodation at a small boutique lodge; that offers unrivaled panoramic views over the game-rich floodplain and Chobe River. Stay in a river-facing suite together with a private plunge pool (2 can accommodate a child of 10 years +).

Situated in Northern Botswana; Ngoma Safari Lodge is within the Chobe Forest Reserve which borders the western edge of Chobe National Park. It is 55 kilometers away from Kasane town and 135 kilometers from the mighty Victoria Falls.  As Ngoma Safari Lodge is away from the busy Kasane town; where many large hotels and lodges are; an authentic feeling of intimacy and privacy is certainly found. Furthermore; both walking and night drives are permitted here; unlike in Chobe National Park itself.

Lion, leopard, buffalo, and elephant are very often seen; while hippo, crocodile, giraffe, sable, and roan antelope also call the Chobe Forest Reserve home. The flood plain also attracts large migratory herds of zebra; that follows a 300 mile round trip between the Angola basin and Chobe; making it; in fact; the longest terrestrial migration route in Africa.

Also; bird lovers are spoilt for choice when it comes to bird watching in Chobe National Park and Forest Reserve.

About Ngoma Safari Lodge

The development of the lodge was a joint community and privately funded project; in association with the Chobe Enclave Conservation Trust (CECT). Through its socially responsible efforts; the lodge enriches the lives of those living within this community; directly from a land lease fee and bed levy; as well as employment. Its design is focused on best environmental practices ensuring a reduced carbon footprint; wherever possible.

Made from local materials and designed to blend into the natural surroundings; Ngoma Safari Lodge is an intimate accommodation option located in a private oasis. Generously spaced-out suites offer guests privacy, luxury, and panoramic views.

Perched on the edge of a plateau overlooking the Chobe flood plain; the Lodge’s central guest areas consist of a reception, dining area, bar, swimming pool, sundeck, and viewing platform.
