Chobe Game Lodge
Chobe is the most well known National Park and wildlife area in Botswana. It is famed for its enormous elephant populations and the exceptional viewing possible by boat on the Chobe River, one of the best water based wildlife viewing opportunity in the world.
The Chobe River is a draw for elephants, buffalo and many more species. A boat trip is the ultimate way to see the variety of animals along the river and this is Botswana’s best location for seeing big crocs as well as a premier birding area. Game drives can be very productive too with rare antelope such as sable, roan and puku often seen. It is a productive area for lions and holds Africa’s largest elephant population. Because you are in a National Park vehicles must stay on the roads, and particularly in the riverfront area this can lead to some crowding at special sightings.
Chobe Game Lodge is the only permanent Lodge situated inside of Chobe National Park in the riverfront area. This makes it the ideal base to explore the park and the riverfront with the advantage of being out earlier and later than the majority of tourists who need to enter and exit the park gate and stay in Kasane.
Chobe Game Lodge offers a choice of land or water-based activities and the most complete game experience in the Chobe National Park. Early morning and late afternoon game drives are conducted by expert guides in open sided 4×4 vehicles to ensure maximum visibility of Chobe National Park’s spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife. Meanwhile, riverside game viewing is conducted by small and highly maneuverable boats, perfect for morning or sunset cruises.
Chobe Game Lodge can accommodate up to 94 people in total luxury and the extensive facilities include a large swimming pool with adjacent terrace and a grassy riverside boma area where a Marimba band or traditional dancers can perform. Meals are catered for at the terrace restaurant, and themed BBQs are regularly held at our boma on the Chobe River’s grassy banks. Each of the 47 rooms at the lodge is river facing and air conditioned, featuring overhead fans, complimentary mini bar, en-suite bathrooms and private terrace.
