Just outside Chobe National Park, you will find the four-star Chobe Safari Lodge. The lodge is the perfect base for visiting Chobe National Park – whether you dream of a traditional game drive or you are more drawn by the idea of a cruise on the Chobe River. The lodge is located right by the river and has its own jetty, bordering Chobe National Park on the other side. So you have the best of both worlds. It is a 10-minute drive from the airport and a 5-minute drive takes you to Kasane, where there are banks, supermarkets and souvenir shops.
Chobe Safari Lodge has 76 rooms of varying sizes to accommodate couples, solo travellers and families.
All rooms overlook the Chobe River, either from the balcony or from the terrace. All have an en suite bathroom and toilet, air conditioning, TV, safe, tea and coffee-making facilities, minibar and mosquito net over all the beds.
The lodge has its own restaurant, which serves delicious national and international dishes and vegetarian food.
There is a large pool, a bar and a lovely viewpoint down by the river.
A really nice, reasonably-priced lodge!
If you would rather stay inside the National Park itself, we recommend that you upgrade to the Chobe Game Lodge. This is the only lodge located within the Chobe National Park itself. If you decide to upgrade, we recommend that you spend your time around the lodge and do not purchase a day trip to sites like Victoria Falls.
In the heart of the town of Kasane, within walking distance of shops, banks and supermarkets and just a few minutes’ drive from the entrance to Chobe National Park, you will find the lovely 4-star lodge, Chobe Marina Lodge.
Enjoy your breakfast under the shady trees on the magnificent terrace overlooking the Chobe River before setting off on the day’s adventures. What makes the safari experiences in Chobe National Park so unique is that you not only have the opportunity to enjoy traditional game drives on land, but also the opportunity to experience the nature and wildlife from the water on a cruise on the Chobe River.
In the quiet afternoon hours, when the sun is high in the sky, you can relax in the lovely pool area which has plenty of space for sun loungers and a pool bar.
The 60 spacious rooms all have air conditioning, ceiling fans, flat-screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities, fridges and mosquito nets over the beds.
The lodge has two restaurants, a spa and two bars, one of which is perfect for a “sundowner” overlooking the river and the sun going down over the national park.
Chobe Game Lodge is the only lodge inside Chobe National Park itself. The lodge is situated right by the Chobe River, surrounded by wildlife and amazing nature experiences wherever you look.
There is a 250-metre boardwalk along the river with a number of viewing platforms with soft chairs, half shade and an incomparable view of the Chobe River and its wide variety of animals. Enjoy the sunset with a cool drink in your hand – there is almost nothing more beautiful in the world than a sunset from Chobe National Park.
The entire lodge is beautifully decorated in Moorish style with vaulted ceilings, lanterns, large cushions and a lovely, tasteful blend of neutral and bright colours. The lodge has four restaurants, two bars, six lounge areas, a small shop, pool, day spa, boma – and a large garden with plenty of space.
The 44 rooms all face the river, have their own terrace, air conditioning, safe, free minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities, torch, umbrella – yes, they’ve thought of everything!
There is free Wi-Fi throughout the lodge.
