Brilliant, just brilliant. The staff, the facilities, the food, but most of all the game drives, all were fantastic. I must specifically mention the skill and patience of the guides, who were also both knowledgeable and keen to show the wonderful animals to be seen in the park.

Chobe Game Lodge is THE only lodge located inside of the National Park, on the River Bank. The hospitality shown by ALL the staff was awesome. Rooms were great, very well kept and facing the river banks where Elephants come everyday to bathe. In particular, a special mention goes to a few of the staff: Leene and Bee who made...

The lodge is located on the banks of the Chobe River with views of Namibia across the river. The rooms are well appointed with views of the river. The boat safari up and downstream provided elephant viewing and many bird sightings. The public spaces in the lodge are comfortable and the food is good. Staff are well trained and attentive....

I was truly amazed by this lodge in Chobe National Park. Located next to the Chobe River, it has a typical architecture and atmosphere. The staff is very courteous, the rooms are very comfortable, and the food is delicious. The morning and evening game rides are fabulous, but the highlight was the boat ride in the Chobe River, where you...

This is truely an Eco-lodge, from the boardwalk along the river, constructed from millions of plastic bags, to the landcruisers converted to electric motors and the solar driven river boats. The game guides are all ladies and they know their stuff. Our guide was Thuso who was amazing at spotting and Identifying the incredible bird life, Elephants, giraffes, lions, hippos,...
