Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a great stay. The food was especially good with great flavours and choices and the game drives and boat excursions generated all the animals. Staff were happy and helpful. I have no problems recommending this hotel

The location of this facility is indeed prime. Despite being located almost at the heart of the township and giving visitors/guests easy access in to the township and its different services and activities, the serenity that prevails there, one cannot ask for more.

Beautiful location but not much of a customer experience. Mosquitoes aplenty with nothing done at restaurant to manage this problem. Food was mediocre to say the least. Staff were fairly helpful but overall not enough for me to go back to Chobe Marina Lodge again. When the afternoon activity, river cruise was rained out nothing was done to help with...

Thank you for taking the time to rate your stay with us on Trip Advisor.

Our overall feeling of the Lodge is that it could use a sprucing up. The network of cabins is quite nicely placed along the Chobe river's edge and they look quaint, however upon arriving at our cabin we could not open the sliding door to enter our cabin as it was off its gliders. Although someone arrived quickly to look...

We stayed for two nights in March and had a great experience. The lodge is nice with ample rooms, but spotty Wifi. The restaurant is above average, but beware of the insects at night. That was a bit of a problem our second night and the hotel's response did not solve the problem. We did have a beautiful boat ride...

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. You will be happy to know we have upgraded our WIFI and the issues have been addressed and it is very reliable now, considering the challenges in the remote area we are in. The safari experience and boat cruises are a delight as you have mentioned.

We didn't actually make our reservation at this hotel, but were switched from our original choice without prior knowledge. We discovered on arrival that our first choice hotel had moved us to Chobe Marina Lodge due to reasons that we felt were questionable. However, we believe that this change worked wonderfully for us. The rooms were spacious with every possible...

We stayed 4 days/3nights at Chobe Marina and it exceeded our expectations. Our lodge was a suite giving us space to relax as well as sleep. It was clean and comfortable, with mesh shutters as well as windows allowing you to have the windows ajar during the day. The location is outstanding with views over the Chobe River. The monkeys,...

Ideal location for a wonderful game experience. The food is OK but the service in the top resaurant could have been better. Overall though, I enjoyed staying there as the staff were particularly friendly and attentive.

A nice hotel at the Chobe river, offering plenty of activities. For some - e.g. day trip to Vic-Falls - it's worth while checking alternatives for cost reasons. Nice suite, friendly staff, good service. Very fast laundry.

Generally the rooms including all necessary amenities and ambiance were good. The most challenge was mosquitoes but Chobe Marina Lodge provided the repellents to help keep the mosquitoes away. This was also assisted by provision of the mosquito nets which really made the nights enjoyabe
