Chobe Game Lodge is perched along the banks of Botswana's prolific Chobe River.
Chobe Game Lodge is the only permanent lodge situated within the boundaries of the Chobe National Park. The lodge offers spectacular views of the Chobe River and its floodplains. In the dry season, herds of elephant and buffalo assemble on the riverbank. The park has the highest elephant concentration of any African safari area.
The lodge has 48 rooms that face the river. The rooms are en suite with air-conditioning and private terraces that overlook the riverbed. The lodge also has four suites which feature their own private plunge pools. Alternatively, guests can unwind with a book in their suite's luxury lounge. Hot summer days are typical of a Botswana safari - luckily, the lodge's main swimming pool provides a cool reprieve from the heat.
Laze around on the raised wooden viewing decks or book a private spa treatment in the comfort of your own suite and unwind with the aromas of herbs and essential oils. Chobe Game Lodge offers river cruises on small boats or the double-decker river cruiser, the Mosi-oa-Tunya, with a bar and snacks on board. Another option to get even closer to nature on your African safari is a bush walk in the Kasane Forest Reserve. Dinner is either served in the riverside boma beside a cozy fire or at the terrace restaurant that offers magnificent views of the Chobe River. Professional guides and environmentalists conduct stargazing evenings on the lodge's stargazing deck.
Guests who book a safari package to Chobe Game Lodge board a flight to Livingstone in Zambia from Johannesburg's O R Tambo International Airport and are then transferred to Chobe Game Lodge for their safari on the rugged banks of the lustrous Chobe River in Botswana. Views of the stately river encroach upon the perimeters of the lodge, from the cool basin of your suite's plunge pool or sun deck to the timbered span of the dining terrace.
Safari activities range from fishing in the wealthy waters of the Chobe to exploring the surrounding tusker country in an open-air game vehicle. Guests pursuing the zenith of relaxation may choose to melt their maddened muscles in the lodge's spa. Conclude evening meals on the stargazing deck with the enlightened narrative of an expert astronomer. This luxury African safari package offers access to the only permanent lodge within the park itself.
More of a hotel than a safari lodge, Chobe Game Lodge does offer fine accommodation and a great location if you wish to enjoy a five star Botswana safari. I have stayed at the lodge on numerous occasions, spanning a decade. My stay has always been comfortable, the food very good (considering the number of people that are catered for), and the service always friendly. The safari activities include land- and water-based game viewing in one of Africa's grandest safari parks.Read More
