Ngoma Safari Lodge | Chobe National Park | Botswana
Ngoma Safari Lodge is 55 km from the nearest town, Kasane, and 135 km from the magnificent Natural Wonder of Victoria Falls. Your own exclusive river-facing suite offers a quiet refuge and includes an indoor bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a private outdoor sanctuary.
It is from here, where you will be able to gaze out onto the floodplain and Chobe River, the lifeblood of the area.
Botswana’s Chobe National Park is the country’s third-largest nature reserve and was also the first to be declared in the late 1960s. Visitors to the park can look forward to spotting a large variety of Chobe wildlife, including birds, herbivores, and of course the world-famous Chobe Elephants.
The park is divided into four areas, each distinguished by a unique ecosystem. Because the park’s natural environment changes as one region give way to another, the variety of Chobe wildlife differs depending on your location.
The Serondela area, also known as the Chobe riverfront, is a lush region with a plentiful supply of trees. For this reason, the area is home to herbivores such as the giraffe, sable and Cape buffalo. Elephants are frequently spotted in Serondela, drawing visitors to this attractive region of the park.
The Chobe riverfront is also the only place in Botswana where the Puku antelope may be spotted. Bird spotters will enjoy looking out for the carmine bee-eater, and when the river is in flood a host of aquatic birds including ducks, storks, ibis, and waterfowl may be seen.
In the Savuti marsh, a drier area of the park, the savannah ecosystem is home to a variety of large animals which are easily spotted by visitors to this region. The main attraction of Savuti is the presence of Elephants, which are numerous and offer an opportunity for amazing viewing. Zebra, wildebeest, warthogs, impalas and kudu are also plentiful in this region. Lions and hyenas are spotted regularly in Savuti, while visitors may be lucky enough to spot a rare cheetah.
In the Linyati marsh, visitors have another opportunity to spot elephants, while a number of predators prowl the plains. Leopards, lions and wild dogs are a common sight in this area of the park, preying on Roan and Sable antelopes which are present in large numbers.
The thatched lodge incorporates rustic and ethnic styles, with natural finishes and an emphasis on space and comfort. The central area includes a sitting room, dining room, bar area, game viewing deck, a new pool deck and a plunge pool with a striking water feature. Spend evenings around the fire looking out at the floodlit waterhole.
