Situated on the banks of the Chobe River, Chobe Safari Lodge is a stone’s throw away from Chobe National Park, arguably the home of Botswana’s biggest selection of game. The location is ideal, not only for its proximity to one of the most heavily populated habitats of wildlife in Africa, but also for the ease with which guests can take a daytrip to the mighty Victoria Falls. Recently renovated, Chobe Safari offers guests a comfortable, secluded place to return to after a long day, and the lodge’s daily safari trips takie guests deep into the park to the playgrounds of animals in their unspoilt habitats.
Guests can choose from the exclusive River Rooms, offering world-class luxury and amenities, or the brand-new Safari Rooms, looking out onto the rolling banks of the river. Both types of rooms are fully air-conditioned with their own en suite bathrooms and satellite TV. A charming alternative is the traditional thatched rondavels, each with a ceiling fan and en suite bathroom. More adventurous guests will enjoy the beautiful campsite set beneath the riverine forest right on the edge of the river.
The lodge boasts several dining options, each with its own charm and hospitality. The Terrace Restaurant offers dinners delicious buffet-style meals, sure to satisfy the heartiest of appetites; or for those who prefer a lighter option, there are the Cocktail Bar or Sedudu Sunset Bar, offering a range of light snacks and featuring breathtaking views of the Caprivi floodplains and Sedudu Island.
Chobe National Park joins the Chobe, Linyanti and Kwando Rivers and comprises a mix of islands, lakes and floodplains, ensuring a rich diversity of wildlife all year round. The park is also home to Botswana’s largest elephant population, as well as buffalo, lions and leopards. The natural waterways lend themselves to traverse the park by motorboat allowing guests an entirely different perspective; some are fortunate enough to see the hippos bobbing around as they glide past or catch the ancient crocodiles sunning themselves on the riverbanks. The boat cruises also run in the evening, treating guests to the stunning view of an African sun set.
