This luxury resort is located in the middle of the bush on the edge of the great Chobe National Park. The lodge is perched on the edge of a steep plateau and features eight well appointed suites – each with excellent views overlooking the Namibian plains far below. You come here for both luxury and relaxation, yet the biggest draw is Chobe National Park and its prolific wildlife. The lodge itself is small and low key yet one becomes pampered quickly in any of their elegant rooms all of which feature large comfortable beds, a big bath and a mini bar.
Ngoma offers a number of safari related options, with their most popular being the all day game drive. You will see wildlife – and tons of it – regardless of the time of year that you visit. This all day excursion includes a short boat ride (great for bird and reptile lovers) and then the rest of the day is spent finding wildlife within the park itself. There are no rhinos in the park but you may see the rest of the Big 5 animals. Elephants are plenty, there are sizeable groups of giraffe, hippos and cape buffalo and if lucky you might spot a pride of Lions resting in the shade. Another highlight of this day is the specially prepared lunch by their Executive Chef – when your group is hungry you will stop in the bush and the guide will setup the table and chairs. Good food is taken with good South Africa wine!
Allow at minimum two days at the lodge – 3 days is ideal especially if you want to take a day for relaxing especially in and next to their plunge pool enjoying one of their drinks from the bar.
