Its location on a ridge within the Chobe Forest Reserve just 3km from the Chobe National Park means that Ngoma Safari Lodge has panoramic views over the Chobe River and its floodplain. Low-key luxury rules here. The understated yet elegant safari lodge is built of natural materials – think thatch, wood and stone – so that it blends into its surroundings.
The charming and airy central lodge area is where you’ll find the guest lounge, dining room, bar and a plunge pool that is extremely welcome in the heat of summer. Beneath the outstretched boughs of an ancient baobab, the viewing deck overlooks a floodlit waterhole frequented by elephant, antelope, zebra and other resident game, making it the perfect spot to enjoy sundowner cocktails or a delicious evening meal under the stars.
The eight secluded suites are spread out on either side of the communal lodge area, each with the same uninterrupted Chobe River views. Each luxurious thatched suite has a verandah with a private plunge pool with glorious views. In case you want to luxuriate in the peace of your own private sanctuary while you take in the sight of the famous Chobe elephants and vast herds of zebra and buffalo grazing on the floodplain below, your room has all the thoughtful touches required for total comfort: ceiling fan, air conditioning, spacious bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities (including Nespresso machine) and a minibar.
The lodge is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of a wide array of safari activities. Guests can enjoy a full-day safari comprising a boat cruise on the Chobe River, a picnic lunch and a game-viewing drive in the Chobe National Park. Also on offer are day and night game drives, birdwatching and cultural visits to the local school and village.
