Bush luxury in a stunning setting overlooking the Chobe River and Caprivi floodplains, Ngoma Safari Lodge is an ideal way to experience an African safari in absolute comfort. On Botswana’s border with Namibia and an easy drive from the Victoria Falls and all its activities, it offers a tranquil refuge to soak up the African wild with endless views of wildlife without even leaving the lodge. Located in a private concession alongside the Chobe National Park, known for its plentiful elephants and plains game, Ngoma offers walking safaris and night drives as well as full day game-viewing excursions and river cruises.

Intimate and peaceful, the eight luxurious thatched suites all enjoy panoramic views over the plains through wide windows and plenty of private space to relax and unwind after an exhilarating safari.

The comfortable big beds are draped in mosquito netting with both ceiling fan and air conditioning to combat summer heat and the decor is calm with natural finishes for a touch of rustic luxury. Each suite has a private outdoor sanctuary giving on to the view, complete with plunge pool and outdoor shower, and the open plan ensuite bathroom has both tub and indoor shower. Wifi is available at the main lodge if you need to be connected.

The choice of activities is enough to fill several days and with the prolific game attracted by the water and grazing of the Caprivi plains there’s never a shortage of photo opportunities. Take a full day game drive in the Chobe National Park, punctuated by a river cruise and bush picnic. Start the day with an early morning walking safari in the Forest Reserve accompanied by the knowledgeable and friendly guides. Or slow the pace with a relaxing afternoon beside the lodge swimming pool and the baobab tree, watching wildlife on the plains below through binoculars, followed by a sunset river cruise passing crocodile, hippos and even swimming elephants. The friendly and professional staff go out of their way to provide personalised service, serving up delicious meals and treats and looking after every detail.

For an African safari getaway with plenty of comfort and superb game-viewing Ngoma is an excellent choice.
