Chobe Game Lodge is a luxury safari experience that offers some of the best game viewing opportunities in this Botswana region. Located on the banks of the Chobe River, west of Kasane, the camp forms the only permanent base from which to explore the vibrant wilderness of Chobe National Park.
Lion, leopard, sable, roan antelope, African wild dog, puku, red lechwe, and giraffe are just some of the game that make up the Chobe’s diverse and abundant wildlife. Best of all, the surrounding area is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa. Along with great herds of buffalo, the elephants come to bathe, drink, and play in the Chobe River, and thus offer a fantastic spectacle to satisfy game viewing desires. On top of this, the Chobe area also attracts spectacular flocks of birds such as Schalows turacos, western-branded snake-eagles, hooded vultures, rosy-throated longclaw, and barred owlet and white-browed coucal. These birds are some of the 450 species guests will be able to spot wandering in the areas around the camp.
With such great game to see, the camp offers morning and afternoon game drives on 4x4 Land Cruisers as well as mid-morning and sunset safari cruises. These activities are led by an all-female team of guides and resident environmentalists. All activities are family-friendly and children of all ages are welcome at the lodge, but there are no babysitting facilities.
Chobe Game Lodge is larger than most safari camps. It consists of 47 luxury rooms with en-suite bathrooms; four of which have king-sized beds with large private terraces and plunge pools, whilst the others include one family room and 41 twin or double standard rooms. In total, the camp hosts up to 94 people at any one time. All rooms face the river to offer the best chance to see game from the comfort of your private space.
The main lodge is replete with lavish facilities to enhance your safari experience. The main dining area serves exquisite buffet-style and a-la-carte meals, which are equalled by food available at dining areas all around the lodge. Boma dining on the bank of the Chobe River is particularly breath-taking. The Tshwene Lounge and Cigar Bar with a library, billiard table and television, in addition to the Linyanti cocktail bar, the beauty salon and gym, and swimming pool, strike the perfect balance between stylishness and privacy.
Topping it all is the lodge’s eco-friendly elevated River Board walk and three viewing decks. These are used for watching the sun set whilst privately dining. Chobe Game Lodge’s expert mixture of great game viewing opportunities and luxury living that embraces the outdoors makes it a one-of-a-kind safari experience perfectly located in a one-of-a-kind hub of Botswana’s vivacious wildlife.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
