The conversion of the gravel road from Katima to Ngoma into tar has been taking years. When you reach Ngoma, there's little there apart from the border post, a smart office next to the bridge by the Chobe River. About 2km further on, over the river, Botswana's border post is a newer building perched high above the water. Both seem efficient, pleasant, and generally quiet. This crossing is fine for 2WD vehicles, and opens 06.00–18.00.
Beyond is a good gravel road to Kasane, which cuts through the Chobe National Park, or a choice of slower more scenic routes. One leads to Kasane, for game viewing along the Chobe riverfront; the other heads through forested and communal lands towards Savuti and Maun. Both the scenic options require park permits and a 4WD vehicle.Salambala Community Campsite
The turn-off for Salambala, off the main B8, is about 15km north of Ngoma or 46km south of Katima Mulilo. This is another of the Caprivi's excellent community campsites. It has three separate pitches for tents and a fourth better suited to larger groups, each with a private flush toilet and a shower with hot water. All profits from this camp go back to the community.
