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.

  • It was FANTASTIC! Beautifully organised, everything worked like clockwork. We agreed that we had the best support team ever (and we have experience) - all delightful, very professional and nothing was too much bother.

    It clearly couldn't have been a better route, such a wonderful mix of landscapes. And plenty of acclimatisation time. Nonetheless, I was glad of my summit oxygen.

    Kit excellent. Double good mattresses made for most comfortable trek camping ever. Tents v good. Mess tent pretty windproof, which was vital for enjoyment. Best camp loo ever!

    My favourite day was Shira Cathedral. Amazing.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout
