This Lodge has been one of the most attractive we have had during our travel in Botswana. The staff is extremely nice, very well educated, friendly and helpful. The rooms are placed in a gorgeous landscape with a breathtaking view surrounded by wilderness. We stayed there for 3 nights and we enjoyed every minute. Food was also excellent.

We were met by reprensentatives of Ngoma Lodge at the Kasane Airport. We were driven to the lodge. It took about a hour and went through a national park so we saw animals on the way. The lodge is located on a bluff overlooking part of Chobe National Park. In the distance across the river was Namibia where you could...

Get five star pampering in the African outback. The five-star accommodations are complemented with amazing food. How they do this in the middle of nowhere I don't know! The place is amazing and the management is wonderful. Our only downside is the long jeep ride on both highway and park roads to get to the wildlife viewing along the river....

Many thanks for your wonderful review! We are so pleased you had a great stay with us. Unfortunately the downside of being situated in a more peaceful location is the journey to the busier side! We are so glad you had great sightings so that it was worth the trip! Best regards, Jonathan Hudson. General Manager.

Stayed here for three nights. Absolutely gorgeous. Food was excellent and our guide MK on our game drives was great. Did a river safari in addition to the game drives and even had a picnic in the bush. Saw leopard, plenty of elephant, zebra and on one afternoon, more than 100 giraffes. Staff was very attentive and food was exquisite....

The lodge is beautifully decorated and has enough space. The own plunge pool is a welcome addition in a very hot weather. The staffs were very nice and helpful.

“ There are eight cabins, and all are identical. You can't go wrong with any of them! The lodge is five years old and very up to date. Our only complaint would be that the pool is rather small. However each cabin has its own plunge pool, so not an issue.”

“We had villa #8 which was at the end. Very quiet, although I believe they all would be about the same.”

“All the rooms are individual buildings made up of a suite; all have the same view; some a little further from the main lodge but it's not a long walk to any (there are 8) and you are guided at night just in case there are fellow visitors of the four legged variety wandering around!”
