Ngoma Safari Lodge

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.

Easily accessible, yet completely private

Ngoma Safari Lodge is tucked away in the Chobe Forest Reserve on the western side of the transit route that runs between Kasane and the Ngoma border post with Namibia. We are far removed from the busy Kasane town where many large hotels and lodges are found, giving us an authentic feeling of intimacy and privacy.

Take to the waters on a river cruise*

The expansive Chobe River can be explored in the comfort of a river cruise boat. This full-day safari is a wonderful way in which to absorb and appreciate the scale and splendour of this all-important water system and the many magnificent life forms it supports. *Please note that water-based activities are dependent on the water levels, which vary throughout the year.

Big game and big herds

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 follow a 300-mile round trip between the Angola basin and Chobe, making it the longest terrestrial migration route in Africa.

Unassuming and contemporary in design

Ngoma Safari Lodge is sensitively designed to celebrate its pristine location and views while blending into its natural surroundings. The thatch-roofed lodge is finished in volcanic rock that naturally occurs in the Chobe Forest Reserve and its suites nestle in bushwillow thickets and Zambezi Teak trees.
