I just spent 2 1/2 weeks @Njobvu Safari and I loved every minute of it! The staff was beyond amazing at their jobs and so much fun spending an afternoon talking to them about their families while listening to and watching the hippos argue and the baboons plot their next coo. The accommodations were cozy, clean and comfortable. I cannot wait to visit them all again. Zikomo for a wonderful experience and adventure!

Awesome safari lodge. Super convenient to the park and excellent chef who hit every meal on the head (the bush dessert wasn't great, but all the rest was). Staff is friendly and attentive, although still a little green and learning to anticipate your needs. Bar is reasonably priced. Pool is great and partially shaded during the siesta, making it a great place to relax and get sun or cool off more directly. Guide was well experienced and truly superb, knowledgeable, and friendly. Much better price point than similar lodges. Slightly less well appointed rooms, but aircon works and they are clean, as well as right on the water. Best mid-rabge safari we have done in-country for many years.

Wow! I didn't know what to expect going on Safari, but Njobvu Safari exceeded all my expectations. Seriously if you are looking for a unique and locally run safari stay here! You won't be disappointed. Nicolas greeted our group with a huge smile at Mfuwe airport and we piled into their awesome land cruiser safari vehicles for a beautiful drive to the camp. When arriving to Njobvu, you are immediately immersed in the African bush sounds and lighting. Crocs, storks, baboons, elephants, impala, all grace the edge of the lagoon that Njobvu Safari overlooks. Honestly, I could even just spend time sitting and relaxing on the chalet deck or the community area with a set of binoculars and be happy. The chalet itself is well appointed. The king bed was super comfortable and the mosquito netting kept any bugs at bay. Although I found coming in beginning of June there wasn't many mosquitos or bugs during our stay. It was nice to have an in room shower and bathroom with hot water and ac. The entire staff was extremely kind, helpful, and attentive. They kept the rooms tidy and would attend to refilling coffee/drinking water and turning the bed down/making the bed daily. Food was absolutely incredible! I didn't come across a single meal I didn't like and wow do they keep you fed and happy. Between breakfast lunch and dinner with 2 tea times and a happy hour "sundowners" out in the bush, you will not go hungry! The morning and night safaris are world class! The guides at Njobvu Safari are from the area and their local knowledge combined with expertise shines. There wasn't a question our group asked that couldn't be answered. They all seemed to anticipate exactly where an animal would pass and place us in fantastic viewing angles! We saw leopards, elephant, two lions on a mating spree, hippos ( so many hippos), giraffe, impala, zebra, wart hogs and so much more...The happy hour on the river was breathtaking! I could go on and on but what I'm trying to say is Njobvu Safari was a plus 5 star experience. If you want to stay at a safari that focuses on employing the local community and giving back, book here!

I have so many positive things to say about Njobvu Safari that I'm not sure where to start. From the moment we stepped off the plane in Mfuwe, my husband and I were greeted with warm, friendly smiles and the utmost hospitality. We were transferred from the airport by private vehicle to the Njobvu Safari Lodge which is just a short five minute drive from the park entrance itself. Upon arrival at the lodge, we were helped with our bags and settled into our private chalet for the evening. Our chalet (we stayed in Hippo) was equipped with a comfortable queen size bed, small sitting area, AC and even hot water in the shower. After a very long day of travel, we definitely enjoyed that shower. The next morning we woke up and we were finally able to experience the beauty of this lodge in daylight. The safari lodge is nestled along a thriving lagoon that is filled with all sorts of wildlife including a variety of birds, hippos, various families of baboons, antelope and even a crocodile or two. It was an incredible feeling to wake up in the morning to so many different bird calls and to hear the hippos singing their chorus together. Meals at the lodge were prepared by the in house chef and kitchen staff which did a phenomenal job prepping tasty, fresh meals. The chef was accommodating to our dietary restrictions and actually planned a complete week of vegetarian meals for us. In regards to the food, I was expecting the food to be mainly pre-prepped or boxed, but the food I had at this lodge surpassed all of my expectations. All meals were served in the communal dining area along the lagoon so that you can take in the beautiful sunrises and sunsets that are so spectacular in Africa. Aside from breakfast, lunch and dinner they also served us high tea in the afternoon and a lovely "sundowners" drink which was actually served in the safari park itself. Honestly, watching a family of elephants cross the river together while sipping on a glass of wine amidst a gorgeous orange sunset is one of those memories I will cherish forever. Each day we went on one daytime safari and one night safari. Our guides were an encyclopedia of knowledge. Every time I would try to stump one of them with a question about the wildlife, they knew the answer. They were even extremely well versed in knowledge about all of the local plants. A special shout out to Thomas who indulged all of my husband's desires for "just one more photo". The lodge is the only one in the area that is locally owned and the owners do a great job of hiring local individuals. We ventured into the village with staff from the lodge and we were able to see what initiatives had been started to help the local communities. All in all, this was the experience of a lifetime. Even sitting here writing this review, I am flooded by lovely memories that make me just want to go right back there. I can't wait until my next trip.
