Facilities are nice. Rooms are good but nothing special. Service in the restaurant is poor, but the food is good. Wi fi connection is absolutely horrible. Boat trip was well organised. The safari drive not. We left 30 min later and came back 1 h later. The guide, hired by the lodge, was totally out of focus, although with nice...

We stayed here for 6 nights during a photo workshop with Pangolin. (featured photographer, Grant Atkinson) We had our meals as a part of our package. (breakfast and dinner) This is not a gourmet fancy property. It is clean, very lovely staff...Florence was terrific. The location makes it easy to walk to Spar...(the grocery store) and around town.

Well located, small, spotless, comfortable with excellent service. The lodge was a perfect base for the photo safari with Pangolin. It exceeded expectations in every way. Located on the Chobe river and next door to a decent supermarket.

Stayed here for three nights, great value for the money, friendly staff and helpful tourguides. No view over the water but still close, hippos and warthogs came around by the riverside during dinner hours. When in Kasane there's no need to spend money on luxury lodges, I hardly spent time at the lodge or in my room, the adventure is...

I stayed here for a night in May and was very impressed with the lodge. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was basic but good food. The tour guides were some of the best I've ever had in Chobe! The most impressive was the customer service. My truck broke down and they went above and beyond to help...

We stayed several nights at the Water Lily Lodge in Kasane, Botswana after time in Angola and Zimbabwe. It is a nicely appointed hotel, not fancy, but comfortable and good value for the money. We had no problems with air conditioning, noise, or other basics like hot water in the shower- and it was clean and had nice natural light....

Room comfortable. enjoyed the tv, food was horrible and the restaurant service was even worse. Had to pay in cash for all but one safari as their drivers were busy & they had to contract out. The animals in Chobe were great- we even saw 2 roan antelope- our first ever after 9 other safaris!

We went to Kasane with the thought of pressing on to Victoria Falls but read and were told it was difficult to get a private vehicle through the Zimbabwe border. (That's true but you can still see the Falls in a private car through Zambia.) The purpose of our one-night stay at Water Lily Lodge was to do the excursion...
