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...

The highlight of Muchenje is the full day outing which includes a few hours on the Chobe River by boat complete with picnic lunch and a slow ride by vehicle back to the lodge along the floodplains - be prepared for a long day but its worth it! While on the boat we were treated to tons of elephants feeding...

lovely people, lovely food, lovely accommodation. Mr B you were a fantastic driver (even though you were very fast!!) highlight for me was the boat trip when we had lunch with about 60 ebbits (elephants) that were as close as 6 feet away.

Good location with view over valley towards Chobe River and Namibia. Lodge is basic and traditional; nice staff, ok food and very skilled guides. Rooms are dated; thatched roof houses many critters (esp. lizards and geckos) which seem to reside sometimes inside the room! Nevertheless we very much enjoyed our safari experiences with amazing and abundant wildlife in and around...

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.
