Chem Chem announces opening of their new private airstrip


Chem Chem Safaris is excited to announce their new airstrip is now available for private charters.

Easily connecting with other classic safari destinations such as the Serengeti, Lake Eyasi, and further afield, you can now design the perfect Tanzanian northern circuit with private air time.

The airstrip is a short 10-minute transfer from Chem Chem Lodge and only 40 minutes from Forest & Little Chem Chem. Being close means guests can make the most of their time exploring the wild (and sleep in on that day of departure).

Ngoma Safari Lodge

Machaba Safaris has taken a long and deliberate time to find the perfect match for their brand in the Chobe region. Ngoma Safari Lodge has surpassed expectation and fits perfectly within the Machaba brand of top-class camps and lodges across the Okavango Delta and Chobe regions in Botswana, while being the perfect connector with its Zimbabwe camps. Ngoma is a small boutique lodge set on the edge of a plateau, overlooking the Chobe River and floodplain towards Namibia. As one of only a few lodges in the north-eastern corner of the Chobe Forest Reserve, Ngoma Safari Lodge is close to the western end of the Chobe Riverfront, a quieter area with magnificent views, amplified by the layout of the lodge over several levels across the hill..
