We stayed 3 nights at Muchenje Safari lodge to kick off our Safari adventure in Botswana. This lodge is about an hour drive from Kasane Airport but connected with a motorable road. The lodge is about half mile off-road from the highway and almost on the edge of the Chobe River/Namibia border. The lodge is at a slight elevation with...

Twelve of us traveled to Kasane to stay at Muchenje Safari Lodge as the first stop in a two week adventure. The driver was waiting for us when we cleared immigration at the Kasane airport. The lodge wasn't that far a drive from the airport. On the way, we saw a family of elephants on the side of the road....

we spent two days in this lodge which is located in a very nice place overviewing the Chobe reserve and river. We had nice time with early morning and afternoon safaris; and the "must" was the cruise on Chobe river between hippos, herds of éléphants, birds, etc.

Really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly. The food was great as was the service. The various different outings were all enjoyable. Saw so much wildlife that it was hard to believe. The day on the river was amazing for seeing so many elephants and numerous other animals and birdlife galore. The guide we mainly had (Bee) was...

very friendly staff, great guides, comfortable bungalows, good food - and wonderful game viewing almost too many elephants and leopard! A must 'do' is the day out on the Chobe river, its a long day but you see SO much - up close and personal!

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 6 night safari holiday. Right from the beginning we were greeted by friendly staff and their friendliness continued throughout our stay.
