This range of activities means no two days are the same at Ngoma Safari Lodge,

Mrs. Diana Nelson Salamat

"Fantastic lodge. We had a very warm welcome and that set the standard for our stay. Superb food, great staff and the location on the hill is perfect giving the most breath taking views at any time of day, although sunset is pretty special indeed. Our rooms were beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. Our Guide was excellent and went that extra mile to make our trips extra special. We saw an unbelievable amount of game. Highly recommend"

Mr. Harry McDermid
"Luxurious lodge but a lot of road driving in the jeep to reach the park for a game drive. Pretty tiring."
