Situated in Kasane on the banks of the Chobe River, bordering Chobe National Park, Chobe Safari Lodge is perfectly located in an area of Botswana packed with diverse game alongside the borders of Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Because the camp is situated beside a National Park, the area can be busy with game vehicle traffic, but the density of wildlife in this area more than compensates.

Game drives and private boat cruises provide guests with a thrilling opportunity to see a plethora of game such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, red lechwe, puku, impala, sable antelope, crocodile, lion, leopard, and many, many more. Guests can also embark on excursions to the nearby Victoria Falls and Okavango Delta, walk to a Namibian village, and even fly scenic routes mapped out in the sky. Fishing, Reptile Park visits, and spectacular bird-spotting opportunities are some of the many other activities the Chobe Safari Lodge offers.

A cocktail bar and entertainment lounge, each with their own viewing deck, provide guests with a fantastic view of the pans from the comfort of the main lodge. The pool deck, which now has a new enlarged swimming pool, the health and beauty salon, and the squash court are great places for guests to relax in the luxury setting of Chobe Safari Lodge. Another new feature to the lodge’s shared facilities is a restaurant that serves à la carte and buffet-style meals with indigenous Africa flavours. Guests can also dine under the stars on-board a boat as part of the dinner cruises. The Lodge’s Sedudu Bar overlooks the river and floodplains and is famous for being the best sundowner spot in the region.

Accommodation consists of 46 Luxury Safari Rooms, 22 Luxury River Rooms, and 8 Rondavels. All rooms have en-suite facilities and offer stunning views of the Chobe River. Family rooms with a separate children’s room with bunk beds are available. Privacy is harder to find in this popular site.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
