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.

  • 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
