Muchenje Safari Lodge is situated in the Chobe Forest Reserve, to the west of the famous Chobe National Park. A quieter location with easy access into the National Park this is a comfortable, affordable lodge with excellent year round game viewing.
The main area has a spacious lounge area, bar, look out platform, dining rooms, curio shop, library and a feature swimming pool built amongst the rock formations. High quality service and pretty views across the river makes the lodge a very peaceful place to relax.
This intimate lodge has only 11 thatched bungalows, all with commanding views over the Chobe. Each room is traditionally furnished and has a private bathroom and lovely private balcony. A family suite is available with a loft sleeping area for the kids.
A range of activities are offered at Muchenje including the Chobe famous boat safaris. The more traditional vehicle safaris, both in the reserve surrounding the lodge as well as into the Chobe National Park, are conducted in open 4x4 safari vehicles with qualified professional guides. Night safaris and walking safaris can also be arranged as well as local village visits.
There is a minimum child age of 8 years and no specific child programmes at this property. The camp is unfenced so wildlife is free to roam through camp providing some memorable moments but also requiring close supervision of children. However, overall this is a very family friendly camp that tailors the safari experience to suit all guests.
Muchenje is a professionally run, good quality camp that avoids the crowds and extremely high prices of neighbouring Linyanti and Okavango.
Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
- Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
- The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
- Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
- Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
- Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant
If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.
Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.
No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.
