We came from Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe side) via Kasane on a good road. I can't remember how long it took but it didn't seem long even with a border crossing so convenient & untaxing. We stayed in 3 tented lodges on our holiday in addition to this one which has huts and would be better for anyone traveling with a...

We stayed at this lodge for four nights in February and had a terrific introduction to both flora and fauna watching and Botswana. The local management and staff were very friendly, the guide was a local expert who knew so much about the area and what we were seeing and the food and liquor was plentiful and varied (the two...

Great fun combined with a great service ethic. Shawn (?) our host is a delightful and interesting fellow...his crew is second to none. Polite, attentive, personable they combine genuine care with personal attentiveness. Food was outstanding and our room was clean, cozy, neat, and rather romantic. Lips was a great guide...very knowledgeable. A great destination and cannot more highly recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of an 11 night safari tour. It was wonderful. Friendly, comfortable, nothing was too much trouble, showers were great, good water pressure with plenty of really hot water and the food was great. Particularly loved the flexibility of activities which meant it wasn't regimented. Great rooms with views into Namibia. Staff were...

I have wanted to spend time in Botswana since I started reading "The First Ladies Detective Agency", a series of books about the every day life of a woman detective in Botswana, well over 20 years ago. This past October/November I finally got there and hated to leave. Traveling with my favorite travel companion we spent 3 weeks between Zimbabwe,...

Spectacular views over the Chobe River. It is small and...

I stayed here for three nights. I think this is a higher end establishment and it was fantastic! I would not hesitate to stay here again. I was here in the green season, so my prices were less than what you pay in the dry season. The safari lodge overlooks the Chobe River valley and you can see game in...

This is definitely a place to go at least once in a lifetime!! The place is breathtakingly beautiful, the food is fantastic and the staff is so friendly, it was really hard to leave. The safari guides are probably some of the best in Botswana, they know everything about the wildlife to find animals and they definitely transmit their passion...
