Main description of Ngoma Safari Lodge

All 8 river facing suites have spacious internal and external living areas (refurbished in February 2013) a bath, an inside and outside shower, overhead fans, air conditioning, mini bar, tea/coffee facilities and an open lounge. In addition, each suite has a private ‘refresh and relax’ pool conveniently located in the external living area.

Each of the suites has a view of the river and offers the opportunity to see the famous Chobe elephants, migrating zebra or buffalo grazing on the floodplain below, depending on the season.

    Two of the eight suites have Indian day beds and may be used as triples.

Ngoma Safari Lodge is situated in Northern Botswana within the Chobe Forest Reserve bordering the western edge of Chobe National Park and overlooking the Chobe River, 55 kilometres/34.1 miles from Kasane and 135 kilometres/83.7 miles from the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.  Ngoma Safari Lodge to Ngoma Gate Bridge (border post with Namibia) is a distance of 7 kilometres/4.34 miles whilst the distance to Chobe National Park Ngoma Gate entrance is 5 kilometres/3.1 miles.

Ngoma Safari Lodge is a joint community and privately- funded project in association with the Chobe Enclave Conservation Trust (CECT).  Africa Albida Tourism is extremely privileged to be part of this project in which they have partnered with CECT and Matt Smith, one of the shareholders of Muchenje Safari Lodge (also located in Chobe, Botswana and adjacent to Ngoma Safari Lodge).   Through its socially responsible programmes, the Lodge enriches the lives of those living within this community.  From day one the CECT has benefitted directly from a land lease fee and bed levy, as well as employment
