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.
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.
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.
|The price includes an upgrade from Chobe Safari Lodge for 3 nights with full board, drinks, mini-bar, transport from and to the airport, and a chance to participate in a range of different activities including game drives and river safaris.||Per person: £1070|
Roughly 10 km outside Maun is Cresta Maun Lodge. The hotel is categorised as three star, but in our opinion, the quality is definitely four star.
There are 83 rooms, all overlooking the garden and river. When the river flows, the garden around the hotel teams with birds.
All rooms are modernly appointed in light colours and feature a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi. A really nice thing about the rooms at Cresta Maun is that they offer the possibility of charging cameras and mobile phones. You’ll need it! You’ll be taking hundreds of photos in Botswana.
Natural materials and light colours have been used in the hotel’s cosy lounge area, and comfy sofas on the terrace are the perfect place to enjoy a cold drink while you send your photos to your loved ones back home. If you need to cool off, you can jump in the pool and then laze in a sun lounger.
The restaurant serves both an à la carte menu and a buffet, and the food is delicious and beautifully cooked – often using local produce.
Maun Lodge is located around a 10-minute drive from the town centre. The lodge has 140 rooms of different sizes and standards – something for everyone.
The real draw at Maun Lodge is the bar and restaurant area, which is really cosy. Both are centred around an outdoor bonfire pit where a fire is often lit in the evening, so you get to eat dinner in the glow of the flames.
The lodge also offers a cosy little pool with sun loungers around it, which is very refreshing at the end of the day in Maun’s often hot climate.
Unleash the inner adventurer in you and experience the Okavango Delta in the only real way: under canvas with elephants, impalas and lions roaring at night, the tweeting of birds that wakes you in the morning and a cold beer around the camp fire in the evening with views of the most wonderful starry sky.
The tent you stay in is roughly 12 m² and made of strong canvas with large windows. It is standing height and has solar lamps, a wardrobe pole and, of course, a mosquito net over all windows and doors. Outside the tent, there is a small shady covered deck with a table and chairs where you can enjoy the view of the countryside around you. You sleep on a comfortable camp bed with a nice soft mattress, real duvets and pillows and a small bedside table. Adjoining your tent, you have your own bush bathroom with a shower and toilet. There is no electricity or running water in the tent, and the “flush” of the toilet consists of a pile of soil and a small shovel – but there IS a toilet! You are provided with hot water several times a day so you can wash in a small basin on a stand outside the tent. If you’ve seen the film “Out of Africa”, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. In the afternoon, water is heated, which is hoisted up in a bucket over a shower head, so you can enjoy your lovely hot shower. It’s primitive, but comfortable, and most importantly, it’s accommodation on nature’s terms, leaving behind no traces while allowing you to get right up close to the wildlife in the delta.
Meals are enjoyed in the mess tent – and the food is good! Freshly prepared, delicious and filling – being on safari gives you quite the appetite. Cold beer and wine are served with your food if you wish, and tea and coffee are available all day long.
Get up close to Tanzania’s unique nature and animal life and see huge animal herds as you visit several of the country’s iconic national parks. Finish your tour with a 4* beach holiday on Zanzibar.
