Bakwena Lodge

Kasane, Botswana

Silver price level

Bakwena Lodge is an intimate, privately owned eco-lodge on the banks of the Chobe River. Acquired in 2000 as a barren soccer pitch, this piece of land has been transformed into a refuge for guests and any wildlife that chooses to share the sanctuary.

Bakwena has a total of 15 individual chalets designed and decorated in a manner befitting the surrounding environment. The chalets offer a quiet, cool and comfortable escape. There are two room types at Bakwena Lodge. They have ten ‘River-View Chalets’ which all face the magnificent Chobe River and five ‘Treetop Chalets’ which are elevated 12 feet above the ground with views of the treetop canopy.

They offer an inclusive safari option in the Chobe region. Chobe is well known for its predators and is home to most of Botswana’s estimated 200 000 elephants.

Activities are mostly focused on land and water based safaris. However, Bakwena also hosts a variety of other activities including guided bicycle tours, cultural exchanges or a sundowner cruise to the meeting place of four countries, (the only one in the world). Bakwenas’ excellent guides will endeavor to make your stay in the Chobe region a highlight of any safari.
