Overview

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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol
