This game lodge is an excellent place to base yourself for a wonderful safari experience. The lodge itself is luxurious, with very well appointed public areas and I liked the way they mixed up the dining venues. The bedrooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. The stand out feature of Chobe is that the guides are all women, which is an...

A wonderful game lodge with the great advantage of being located on the river to experience both a river safari as well as land safaris. Authentic lodge with 5 star accommodation. Botswana provided us with a wonderful experience of seeing wildlife in their natural habitat guided by great rangers, in super comfortable vehicles. A must for elephant lovers. Only disappointment...

The lodge sits in a picturesque setting on the Chobe river amidst an absolute abundance of wildlife. Add to this the class of care provided and it is hard not to come away pretty enthralled. It was great from the start. Check-in was managed as we reclined in Morrocanesque sofas clasping complimentary cold drinks. A suggested schedule of land and...

The experience was awe- inspiring, especially compared with other game parks in the south of Africa which were more akin to open zoos.
