Chobe Safari Lodge

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Bronze price level

Mango Opinion

Chobe Safari Lodge is located in Kasane among several other lodges. It is our favorite 'great value' option in the area. The service and food are nothing to write home about, but the accommodations are comfy in the Safari and River Rooms and the game experiences are as good as the 5-star lodges down the road. The game drives are plagued by access as there is just one entrance for all vehicles to enter and depart Chobe NP, so the crowds are inherent. The afternoon boat cruise is worth the trip and a highlight to many Botswana safaris. 

We suggest this property to people with a budget who can save a little here to put towards the more expensive fly-in camps in the Okavango Delta.

The Chobe Safari Lodge is advantageously located on the beautiful banks of The Chobe River, with vervit monkeys, troops of banded mongoose and resident wart hogs in the lawns surrounding your rooms. Accommodations include 68 lodges rooms and 8 rondavels built in condo-like buildings so the grassy lawns are open to the river.

Along with many species of big game, Chobe National Park boasts the larg est concentration of elephant in Africa, and our game drives offer visitors the opportunity to witness this amazing spectacle. We also offer sunset boat cruises, private boat hire, Victoria Falls day trips, fishing, scenic flights, and Namibian Village walks. Afternoon boat cruises, led by expert guides are sure to be a highlight of your safari. At dry season in particular, wildlife congregate in the thousands at the water's edge to quench their thirst. You are sure to see families of elephant playing in the river and incredible birds on a sunset boat cruise. The dusty horizon unfolds into impressive red and orange sunsets with strolling silhouettes of giraffe and immense herds of buffalo - an iconic African safari site to see.

The lodge boasts an activities center, squash court, health and beauty salon, and cocktail and sedudu bars. Choice of English or Continental Breakfast is available and a light lunch a la carte menu or buffet lunch is available daily. Scrumptious buffet dinners offer wide variety of meals from exotic game meats, roasts, barbecues, stir-fries, Indian cuisine, or vegetarian dishes.
