Lodge Description

Chobe Forest Reserve, Botswana
Located in the Chobe Forest Reserve in Western Botswana, the private Ngoma Safari Lodge is located on the edge of a plateau, offering endless views over the seasonal Chobe flood plain. It also bears witness to magnificent sunsets – the ultimate way to celebrate the end of another perfect African day.

Made from local materials and designed to blend into the natural surroundings, Ngoma Safari Lodge is an intimate bolthole located in a private oasis. Perched on the edge of a plateau overlooking the Chobe flood plain, the Lodge’s central guest area is flanked by a collection of suites that offer guests privacy, luxury and panoramic views.

• Private location in a popular tourist region.
• Generously spaced-out suites screened by natural thickets of bush.
• Large bay windows in every suite provide 180-degree views of the floodplain.
• Full-day boat cruises on the Chobe River.
• Thrilling night safaris

Relax or mingle
The central guest area forms the heart of the lodge. It has a reception, dining and bar area including a large volcanic rock-finished swimming pool, sundeck and viewing platform. The needs of a modern traveller further catered for with free WiFi and other communication facilities.

Private plunge pools
In addition to a central lodge pool, each of the 8 suites at Ngoma Safari Lodge has a private veranda and a refreshing and relaxing plunge pool set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Chobe flood plain.

Eco-friendly kitchen and food storage
To keep our eco-footprint light, we use energy-efficient fridges in our kitchens, which we turn off at night. We also use coal cold rooms and cellars to store heat-sensitive items.
